Added tools for board

February 6th, 2014, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

 

Microchip has announced the emicrochip-58-02-mxpansion of its Arduino compatible chipKit ecosystem, with two new development tools from Digilent, and an embedded cloud software framework. Digilent’s chipKit WF32 board minimises the need for users to purchase additional hardware or shields, by integrating Microchip’s 32-bit PIC32MX695F512L MCU with full speed USB 2.0 host/device/OTG, its agency-certified MRF24WG0MA Wi-Fi module and an energy-saving switch-mode power supply that employs Microchip’s MCP16301 DC-DC converter, in addition to a microSD card – all while maintaining an Arduino hardware-compatible form factor. Digilent’s chipKit motor control shield enables the development of applications using a wide variety of motor types, including servos, steppers and DCs, while allowing users to take advantage of the extra I/O pins found on many of the chipKIT development boards. This additional I/O provides added connectivity and more features than traditional, lower pin-count Arduino shields.
