  1. If so, the card itself would be in the read-only mode. How are the SD Cards formatted? I'm pretty sure the sketch can handle FAT16 and FAT32, but exFAT wouldn't be supported.
  2. Physically, nothing is different. It was a labeling thing when the chipKIT logo was removed.
  3. There is a SDReadWrite example sketch that is installed with the Digilent or chipKIT core. That will do writing and reading.
  4. Sounds like you've got a pretty good solution. The only thing you'll have to be aware of is that you might need a different linker script to correctly load with Mikro's bootloader.
  5. I'm not aware of a GUI offhand, but I did find this download that is supposed to be a front end for pic32prog. Haven't tried it myself.
  6. I don't know if there is a bootloader specifically for the MAX32 that goes through the physical USB, rather than the USB-to-UART chip. However, there are some USB based bootloaders for other boards available. On that one, look for 32MX7 USB hex files. The LEDs probably won't work, but you should be able to communicate through USB. This one has a bootloader project, so you could build one specifically for the MAX32 via USB. But there are hex files for the Fubarino SD, and the
  7. Sorry, I misread your original question. There is pic32prog, which can communicate with the chipKIT bootloader on the MAX32 to load applications.
  8. You have to use an external tool, such as PICkit 3, PICkit 4, Snap, ICD 3, ICD 4, or Digilent PGM. These can be used with the MPLAB X IDE to load the bootloader and program it.
  9. It also depends on what you need to be able to do. If you're needing to debug your code, the only option are those mentioned. The Snap debugger is a very inexpensive option ($15, and discounts are pretty regular). If you don't need to debug, you would have to use a linker script to make the program look like something the MPIDE or Arduino IDE produces, but then you have to be able to download it through the bootloader.
  10. Hi everyone, I know that, in order to use the FTDI chip as a JTAG programmer, that one of the pins on the FTDI has to be configured to allow the connection to the part. For UrJTAG, how does one change the state of the pins on the FTDI chip? Thanks!
  11. The PICkit 3 (or PKOB on Pro MX7) can only be used, in general, with MPLAB and MPLAB X. The Pro MX7 has a number of options: MPIDE UECIDE ( PlatformIO ( Arduino IDE with either: the Digilent Core ( the chipKIT Core (
  12. If you want to set both pins at the same time, rather than in two separate statements, you could also do this: LATGSET = (1 << 15) | (1 << 6); // or 0b1000000001000000 These parts have registers that can do an atomic set/clear/invert, so that you don't have to do a read/modify/write of the register.
  13. If you're looking for a way to both inject SPI/I2C data, as well as capture traffic, then the Aardvark is probably the way to go. But they do have speed limitations (800 kHz for I2C, 4 MHz for SPI). If you only need something to capture/analyze the traffic, then the Saleae tools are quite good at that, along with many other protocols. They can also capture analog data, up to 10 MS/s on the base Logic 8 unit.
  14. J1 is the correct port to use for the COM port. Make sure the USB cable you're using is both data and power. I've seen cables that are power only, and that would prevent the PC from seeing it.
  15. The source code for all of the bootloaders is available on GitHub.
