chipKIT™ MX3 (chipKIT™ MX3)
The chipKIT™ MX3 is a microcontroller development board based on the
Microchip PIC32MX320F128H, a member of the 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller
family. It is compatible with Digilent’s line of Pmod™ peripheral
modules, and is suitable for use with the Microchip MPLAB® IDE tools.
The Cerebot MX3cK is also compatible for use with the chipKIT™ MPIDE
development environment. ChipKIT and MPIDE is a PIC32 based system
compatible with many existing Arduino™ code examples, reference
materials and other resources.
The chipKIT™ MX3 is designed to be easy to use and suitable for use by
anyone from beginners to advanced users for experimenting with
electronics and embedded control systems. It is intended to be used with
either the Multi-Platform IDE, (modified Arduino IDE), MPIDE, or the
Microchip MPLAB IDE. The kit contains everything needed to start
developing embedded applications using the MPIDE. In order to use the
MPLAB IDE, an additional programming/debugging device, such as a
Microchip PICkit3 is required.
The chipKIT™ MX3 provides 42 I/O pins that support a number of
peripheral functions, such as UART, SPI and I2C™ ports as well as five
pulse width modulated outputs and five external interrupt inputs. Eleven
of the I/O pins can be used as analog inputs in addition to their use
as digital inputs and outputs.
The chipKIT™ MX3 can be powered via USB, or an external power supply that may be either an AC-DC power adapter, or batteries.
NOTE: The use of this board with MPIDE requires a common USB A to mini-B cable, which is not included.
