  1. Hi, I'm trying to manually set the RC1 and RC2 pins on port C but I'm only able to do so with PinMode(). I'm able to manually set any of the other pins on port C but I'm not sure why I can't for RC1/2. Any advice on how to enable these pins to be set manually would be greatly appreciated :)
  2. I have a chipKit WiFire PIC32MZ board and I want to use it with the Multi-Touch Display Shield. I know I can do this by using MPIDE however I require the use of Harmony so my board can act as a CDC Host. Is there anyway to have both functionality or get the Multi Touch Display Shield to work with Harmony? Thanks.
  3. Hello, My Windows 10 system will not correctly install drivers for the WiFire board. (See my related post here) How can I get the drivers so that I can install them manually? Thanks, John
  4. Hello, I have been using the WiFire board Rev D for data collection. A data stream is sent from the WiFire board to the windows computer over USB. Programming is via Microchip Blockset for Simulink: Downloadable code is auto-generated by Simulink (CTRL B to build) Program loading is via Pickit3, the .elf file is attached. This system was working fine, but suddenly the windows system can no longer see the com port. How can I fix this? Thanks, John ChipKit_WiFire_32MZ2048EFG100_Standalo
  5. Hello everyone, PIC32MX and PIC32MZ base support has been merged in RIOT-OS. In addition, basic support for the chipKIT Wifire has also been merged. RIOT is a small operating systems for embedded devices with the following features: Multi-threading support, with a full stack for each thread Some POSIX compatibility network stack with IPv6 support Drivers for various sensors And many other things The current support for the chipKIT Wi-Fire is still very incomplete: only a small GPIO driver has been merged. I have written some drivers for SPI, I2C, Ran
  6. I'm having trouble with running a USB CDC example (the cdc_com_port_single from MPLAB Harmony) on a WiFire board. I was able to modify the configuration in order to compile the code for the WiFire. The program starts and, apparently, recognizes the connection from my laptop (as reported by the status LEDs), my laptop (a MacBook Pro) recognizes the board as a tty.usbmodem, but no communication occurs thereafter, and the board ends up in APP_STATE_ERROR. Has anyone succeeded running the example on a WiFire? If not, is there another USB CDC sample for the WiFire I can check?
  7. Hi, Currently I have an error when I try to compile the deWeServer example available on deipck library. For some reasons have some errors. Why is not declared the PIN_LED_STATE?? Regards
  8. Hi, I have a couple of your Wi-Fire RevB modules - excellent boards so far !!. I have done very little with them yet - waiting for Microchips Harmony to 'settle' - its now usable - at V1.03.01 ;-). I have a basic config in and at least running - I can send data out of UART ports so far. So - I now started mapping the IO pins so that I can add my own chips on an add-on board, and the first problem I hit is trying to map your on-board SDCARD :-(. Your spec says that I can drive it with an SPI - which is what I want to do, BUT it also says that SDI3 needs to be connected to pin C4 (CPU
  9. Hi, When I set the jumper on JP9 to 5V0, I get around 3.8V between pins pin 5 and ground instead of 5V. Is this normal or there is something wrong with my board. Regards,
  10. Hi, When I try to use the delay function (__delay_ms() in a simple code for turning LEDs on and off, the project does not build. I have defined _XTAL_FREQ as indicated in MPLABX help. When I include 'delays.h' as indicated in the help, I get a parse error. When I try to build without including delays.h I get the error below. Are the delay functions not available foe PIC32MZ devices? I am using Flow Cloud Skeleton App, and the device is PIC32MZ2048ECG100 ChipKit WiFire. Below is the error and the code. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
  11. Hi, I adapted an MPLAB X program from Dogan Ibrahim's book based on PIC18 microcontroller for my PIC32 WiFire ChipKit. However the following two configuration statements generated errors during building (the syntax is unknown to the compiler) and I therefore commented them out. //Configuration: Ext reset, Watchdog OFF, HS oscillator //#pragma config MCLRE = ON, WDT = OFF, OSC = HS //MEMCONbits.EBDIS = 1; //Enable input / output functions The program was able to build, however it could not do as programmed (the LED 4 did not switch on when button 1 was pressed). I think this is related to the s
  12. The chipKIT Uno32 boards based on the PIC32MX320F128 has two link scripts: chipKIT-application-32MX250F128.ld for upload through USB, and chipKIT-application-32MX320F128-nobootloader.ld for use with chipKIT PGM. Where to find or how to develop the same nobootloader.ld for more recent chipKIT boards, including Wi-FIRE PIC32MZ2048ECG uC32 PIC32MX340F512H DP32 PIC32MX250F128B Thanks!
  13. Hi, I have a ChipKit Wi-Fire board and using MPIDE 0150 (2015-03-18 build). One reason I picked this board was because the MCU has an ADC which can support sampling rates up to 500 ksps (for my project I would need around 200 ksps, 8 bit resolution). When I do a simple test and capture the time (micros()) before an after the analog read, I end up with a time difference of 2469 us, which means a meager ADC sampling rate of 405 sps. Why is it so slow? How can I achieve rates up to 200 ksps with MPIDE and the built in libraries? I found an article for the Arduino board, where someone has booste
  14. Hi, I just bought the Chipkit Wi-Fire board and trying to use the DEIPcK examples that are provided on Digilent's website in MPIDE. However, when I try to compile an example program, for example WiFiScan, I get the following error message: WiFiScan.cpp:55:101: fatal error: MRF24G.h: No such file or directorycompilation terminated. MRF24G.h is the first h file that the program tries to load. I've included the DEIPcK libraries in the way that is described on this website: Any suggestions?
  15. I already started a thread in chipKit forums( and ( but no one was able to reply so you guys are my last hope. In my last post() I discussed about my intention to use a 2 wire interface device/I2C but I got problems whenever I go. I use a chipkit Wi-Fire board and i want to use an MPR121 capacitive touchpad with it and I have 2 coding options: - The sparkfun's MPR121 code approach( which uses i2c functions which is massive and the code gives me a m
