  1. I am familiar with two labelled grounds on the chipkit uc32 and want to know if I can use any other pin as a general purpose ground to ground a button I'm trying to detect changes on. Can I use the GND on the SPI to ground a button? Is there some other pin that could be used as a ground? Best, David
  2. I admit to not having figure it out. It's annoying and I've been using MPIDE as I've said. But, since that's deprecated, I'd like to get the real answer to making this work with the arduino IDE. I'm not believing it's that I need a new bootloader since I can successfully program the board from the other IDE
  3. Re: the first post, I've got the board selected as a chipkit uc32 + the correctly set COM4 (in this case port). Fwiw, it's possible for me to program it from chipkit's proprietary MPIDE, but since that's deprecated, I'd just as soon get this working properly. One other item, I programmed a simple blink led routine on it (my intent is to use this to power a 3d 8x8x8 led cube) and was able to get it working and interesting can get the serial communication from the board to work with the arduino IDE. I'm concerned about reburning the bootloader since I have something almost working
  4. This may be the worst of the noob questions. I just purchased an uc32 as an upgrade to my use of arduino to get something more powerful and upon using the 1.6.8 arduino ide, the first sketch that I try to push to the board gives a "cannot erase chip" error.
