The chipKIT uC32 is based on the popular Arduino™ open-source hardware
prototyping platform and adds the performance of the Microchip PIC32
The uC32 is the same form factor as the Arduino™ Uno board and is
compatible with Arduino™ shields. It features a USB serial port
interface for connection to the IDE and can be powered via USB or an
external power supply.
The uC32 board takes advantage of the powerful PIC32MX340F512
microcontroller. This microcontroller features a 32-bit MIPS processor
core running at 80Mhz, 512K of Flash program memory and 32K of SRAM data
The uC32 can be programmed using the Multi-Platform Integrated
Development Environment (MPIDE), an environment based on the original
Arduino IDE modified to support PIC32. It contains everything needed to
start developing embedded applications. In addition, the uC32 is fully
compatible with the advanced Microchip MPLAB® IDE and the PICKit3
The uC32 is easy to use and suitable for both beginners and advanced
users experimenting with electronics and embedded control systems.
The uC32 provides 42 I/O pins that support a number of peripheral
functions, such as UART, SPI, and I2C ports and pulse width modulated
outputs. Twelve of the I/O pins can be used as analog inputs or as
digital inputs and outputs.
