I'm been messing around with my chipKit Pro MX7 board with the chipKit core in Arduino IDE, but am having an annoying problem. In order to upload a sketch I'm having to manually reset the board and very quickly hit the upload button. If I don't, the board continues to run the last sketch forever and Arduino gives the following error: It looks like the FTDI chip fails to reset the board. As shown in the error message, I'm using 1.8.5 for Arduino on Windows 10, and have 2.0.3 of the chipKit core. For good measure, I downloaded the bootloader from the Digilent website and programmed it into the board. This had the filename "Cerebot-MX7cK-v01000303.hex" Is there a way to make this work, or is it just the way it is? Thanks!
Hi all, I'm taking a lab this semester that lists the chipKIT Pro MX7 as the board used for the class, but the revision is retired. I'm trying to figure out if I could use the Digilent Pro MX7 instead. The documentation says that the Digilent revision retains all functionality from the chipKIT revision, but is there any difference in terms of pin layout or anything else that might cause a problem if I were to be working with documentation for the chipKIT model? Thanks
I recently successfully completed a web server application for the chipKIT WF32 using the Digilent IP stack with the Arduino IDE. I wanted to see how difficult it would be to port the same web server application to the chipKIT PRO MX7 processor board. There appeared to be only a one or two lines of code that had to be commented out to make the conversion. The The Adruino IDE reported "No target found". So I backed off to the simple "ChipKIT_Blink" sketch and had the same result - "No target found". I reverted to the MPIDE environment using the same hardware and the sketch loaded and ran correctly. So I'm thinking the problem is with the Arduino IDE or the chipKIT core library. I am using Arduino rev 1.6.5 and chipkit-core-windows.16778041.v1.0.0-21-glc4b889.zip. Keith recommended removing R159 (no easy task for an older person and glued down R402 resistors.) Has anyone had any success programming the chipKIT PRO MX7 using the Arduino IDE?
