I have at least 4 older chipKIT Max32s and a few Network shields for Ethernet and the CAN buses. Can I use the older Network shields on the newest Max32s from Digilent? Also, I will be creating my own shield soon, which will have 2 x CAN, 1 x RS485, at least one dsPIC for 2 x QEI communicating serially to the Max32, and use at least 4 PWMs, Are there differences in the shields? If I design a shield for the older chipKIT, will it work on the newest Max32? Is there a change log for the changes between the Max32s? It would be nice if the outside headers are in the same location and the pin-out is identical.
Are Analog Shield and Network Shields are compatible with the chipKIT Max32 at the same time? If so are there any special considerations? Thanks you for any help you can provide.
Okay, I need someone to please point out the key piece of information I'm missing. I have years of microcontroller programming experience but am new to Digilient products. I have a chipKIT Max32 with "REV D" printed on the back in silkscreen. I look at the Rev D schematic on the Digilent website, and on sheet 5 of 5 there is a LED with reference designator "LD5" that is controlled by net "T2CK/RC1" (see snapshot below/attached). On schematic sheet 3 of 5 I see where the net "T2CK/RC1" is connected to reference designator "IC2PC" "Port C" on pin 6 (see snapshot below/attached). I program the most basic blink-LED example in MPIDE and... LD5 does not blink. I Google the situation and find someone else having the same problem but is given the only partially helpful tip of "... LD5 isn't on pin 6, LD5 is on pin 86." (see link). I change my MPIDE sketch to "int ledPin = 86;" and sure enough it works! Looking through the schematic, pin 86 is a VDD pin on sheet 2 (see snapshot below/attached). What is going on? Can someone please point out my error in thinking?
Hello! So here is my entry for Digilent's Halloween contest. This is my first time programming in MPIDE and doing something of this nature with microcontrollers, so I put a lot of hours into researching and getting it to work the way that I had planned (with quite a few setbacks along the way). A PIR sensor activates a servo attached to the doll's head, a digital voice recording module with a creepy audio clip, and some LEDs for the eyes. It's running on the chipKIT Max32. I will follow up with a link to an instrucable when I have time to hammer that out. I had a lot of fun doing this and learned quite a bit. Below are some different youtube vids displaying the doll! http://youtu.be/hjpHrV_7POU Here's a video of the completed doll. http://youtu.be/AHtMbCk0-c4 Gotta love slowmo http://youtu.be/1MZ9VPrGxOY Testing phase to make sure all of the parts are working as intended.
