chipKIT™ Wi-FIRE (chipKIT™ Wi-FIRE)

Introducing the chipKIT™ Wi-FIRE: The first chipKIT™ to feature the latest, most powerful line of Microchip’s microcontroller family.
“The PIC32MZ family provides [2.5x] the performance and 4x the memory over the previous-generation PIC32MX families, along with a high level of advanced peripheral integration. For applications requiring embedded connectivity, the family includes [Hi-Speed USB, Ethernet], along with a broad set of wired and wireless protocol stacks.”

“The PIC32MZ is Microchip’s first MCU to employ Imagination’s MIPS microAptiv™ core, which adds 159 new DSP instructions that enable the execution of DSP algorithms at up to 75% fewer cycles than the PIC32MX families. This core also provides the microMIPS® instruction-set architecture, which improves code density while operating at near full rate, instruction and data cache, and its 200 MHz/330 DMIPS offers [2.5x] the performance of the PIC32MX.” – Microchip Press Release

The first manufacturing build of the chipKIT™ Wi-FIRE is produced using the PIC32MZ2048ECG100- A5 engineering silicon. Engineering silicon is made available in limited quantities ahead of a full release to enable early adopters to get a head start on their designs. The A5 version of the silicon is substantially close to the production silicon, so any designs that are done on this version of the chipKIT™ Wi-FIRE will work without modification on the production version of the chipKIT™ Wi-FIRE For any additional questions specific to the silicon on the chipKIT™ Wi-FIRE please visit 

Building on the previous successes with the chipKIT™ WF32, the Wi-FIRE uses the same, 43 available I/O Pins, 12 Analog Inputs, 3.3 Operating voltage, 4 User LEDs, potentiometer, buttons, uses MRF24 on-board wireless module, micro SD Card, dedicated SPI Signals and high efficiency switching 3.3V switching power supply for low-power operation.

Where the boards differ is what the PIC32MZ Processor can deliver.

The Wi-FIRE is significantly faster than its WF32 counterpart, with 200MHz operation speed, 2MB of Flash, 512kB RAM, High Speed USB and a 50MHz SPI. The PIC32MZ core includes the MIPS MicroAptiv CPU Core from Imagination Technologies. microAptiv is a highly efficient, compact, core that is optimized for cloud-connected based projects, using Imagination Technologies’ FlowCloud software.

The Wi-FIRE can be programmed using MPIDE and with the addition of a compatible in-system programmer/debugger, can be used with the more fully featured/advanced Microchip MPLAB®X IDE.
