  1. I am having a ChipKit pro mx7 board (PIC32MX795F512L), when i try to connect with mplab x ide with the on-board debugger (license debugger) i get the error : "Failed to get device ID". I also try the mplab ipe, it able to detect the board but each time i get the same error message. Note: I tried with jumper JP11 removed and J3 connected to Debug and Usb connected to J15 and with same setting but JP11 plugged . (Still the issue remains). All the connection are checked and tightly connected . And last thing do i need to attach a external hardware(debugger) to program it
  2. I'm pretty confident I am following instructions to the letter but it's possible I am doing something wrong. But any assistance here would be great. MPLab X (5.20), XC32 (2.10), Arduino 1.8.10, Chipkit Library 2.10, Importer 1.0.6 (All the latest), Target Board is Pro MX 7. The latest importer states these versions should be acceptable because of the whole "or later" caveat. I've added photos showing I'm my directories (pretty sure they're all pointing to the correct location I'm trying to upload the Chipkit Wire - Master Reader .ino file. I select the Pro MX 7 in Arduino IDE, op
  3. Hi, I am trying to install Arduino IDE with the Digilent Core on a Windows 10 machine. I've tried different Versions from 1.6.8 to 1.9beta. When I try to use the Additional Boards Manager URL it fails at the Signature check. If I install it manually the IDE is not able to find "/bin/pic32-g++.exe". Where do I have to put the files under "chipkit-core" ? Is there a working json-file for automatic installation ? What am I doing wrong ? Thanks for help Markus
  4. Hello, my name is Alexandre. I'm doing my master's degree that involves Chipkit use of CANbus with Arduino IDE. MPIDE is not an option for now. When I build the can example in Arduino IDE the plib.h error occurs: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\chipkit-core\pic32\libraries\chipKITCAN\chipKITCAN.cpp:46:21: fatal error: plib.h: No such file or directory #include <plib.h> ^ compilation terminated." How can I remove the plib.h dependecy and write directly to the hardware? I really need to solve this in order to conti
  5. Greetings! I have an Pro MX7 that I want to use as a development platform for a project and have a question on performance differences between MPIDE and MPLAB X. From what I understand, MPIDE is an Arduino-like environment that works with a lot of Arduino libraries. I like the sound of that because it could make things "easier" to just use a library than create it all myself and Arduino seems to be the "go to" platform for hobbyists. However, I wonder if MPIDE suffers from poorer performance than I'd get trying to do the same thing in MPLAB. A classic example with arduino being digit
  6. Hi Everyone, I am trying to figure out what is the pinout for the push buttoms, I used 4,33,36,37, and did not work, I also used 4, 78, 80 and 81 due to a reference from my professor and stiil did not work If you guys can help me out will be great thanks ESSo
  7. I recently purchased the chipkit UC32 from digilent to do a labview project but when I connect it to my Windows 10 laptop, it says “USB device not recognized”. In the device manager of my computer I see the error in the port under Universal Serial Bus Controllers and it has the yellow triangle error symbol next to “Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)” I have tried many things to try and get it working but have failed. Please help
  8. There were several places to get chipKIT frizting files, but I pulled them into one parts bin to download. Please let me know if this doesn't work! It should include uno32 uc32 max32 wf32 chipKITPro MX4 Basic i/o Shield Motor Shield Pi Shield
  9. Greetings, I would like to replace the default PIC32MX250F128B microcontroller with a PIC32MX130F064B part on the Digilent ChipKit DP32 board and use an Arduino bootloader. I tried burning chipKIT-DP32-v01000303.hex by retargeting PIC32MX130F064B, but this did not work. I am assuming now that I need to make a few tweaks to the bootloader source files and recompile bootloader using MPLAB X. Has anyone done this before? What do I need to do? Thanks, Joel
  10. I'm having problems printing data on-screen, when the program is about to write it, the board freezes, it won't even allow me to reset. In the module of the MAX30100, Vin is connected to 3,3v, GND to GND, SCL to RB8, SDA to RB9, there are also 4k7 resistances conected between SDA and 3,3v, the same goes for SCL and 3,3v. INT remains unplugged. The almost fully white screen is the result of using the ChipKit board. The image filled with data shows the results obtained with an Arduino UNO board, wich were proved right with a saturometer. The last image shows the module for th
  11. Hi All, I have tried to use chipkitcan library from Sublime Deviot. Deviot uses platformio as build platform. I have been able to install the microchip legacy peripheral libraries in platformio and so able to compile, but I run into linker issues, symbols not found. The linker scripts for my architecture are properly found but it sounds to me that the static library for the peripheral is not found. I have verified that the linker script contains the OPTIONAL("libcmh_peripheral.a") and the same for the architecture specific linker and library. This works fine with IMPDE and with Ardui
  12. Hi All, I am trying to use the ChipKITCAN library. This is a wrapper for the microchip CAN network library. I am using the legacy peripheral library to do this. I have been able to build the demo using MPIDE but I haven't been able to run it successfully. Is there any clear set of steps to run the demo in a chipkit max32? Also, I have been able to build this using Arduino IDE but running in the same issue. Any help is appreciated.
  13. I want to debug my Arduino sketch using MPLAB-X (ver 3.61) and after running into a dead end with loading the ELF file, I decided to try my hand at importing the sketch using the MPLAB plugin - "chipKIT Import Plugin (ver 1.0.4) Note: I am using the Digilent Core with the Wi-FIRE board (rev C), not the chipKIT core from Attached are two screenshots. The first is the Plugin description and the second is the Project setup box. With respect to the latter, I'm encountering two problems: (1) It doesn't like my Core location, even though that is the folder where platform.txt is located;
  14. Is the example given by chipkit wf 32 for webserver able to support .php file?
  15. I just want to check if it possible for chipkit wf32 to communicate to mysql. For example, inserting data from the sensors that connected to the chipkit and send the latest data to mysql database.
  16. Hi! I'm a big fan of standard tools, i.e. silicon vendor independent, like the Segger J-Link Programmer-Debugger I've reviewed. The Segger J-Link programmer-debugger lists Microchip PIC32MX and PIC32MZ among the MCUs it supports. Has anyone managed to connect the Segger J-Link and debug against a chipKIT board? Thank you!
  17. Hello, I am working with the chipKIT Max32, chipKIT Network Shield, and ti / Stanford Analog SHIELD from Digilent. I need to be able to generate various analog signal remotely (Ethernet). I have not been successful using the Analog SHEILD with the Max32 (much less the addition of the Network Shield). However, using my Arduino Uno, I am able to generate a signal using the "passthrough" and "ramp" example with the Analog Shield. I would continue to use the Uno, however, I need the extra digital I/O the Max32 (Mega format) has to offer. Also, I have verified basic communication with Max
  18. Good Day, I'm thinking of picking up the LabView Physical Computing kit that includes the Microchip PIC...i.e. the ChipKit WF32. I saw that there is a PMOD shield for the UNO standard, but it doesn't say specifically that it is supported on this ChipKit board. It only mentions some of the older boards. Does this shield work properly with this ChipKit? It would be great if it did, as I have a ton of PMODs that I bought for my Nexys4 DDR. My son would love to use them with ChipKit. Thanks, Dave
  19. Good morning, Is there a way to mix C with assembly code for the UC32 when using Arduino IDE? Document AT1886 describes how to accomplish this for Atmel chips, but I am wondering if the same thing is possible for the Chipkit devices since they use PIC microcontrollers? Here is some more background: I am writing a program for the UC32, and have an assembly program for the PIC32MX340 that I want to call. The assembly function has several arguments, as well as an output. I am wondering if there is any documentation for how to pass data to an assembly program from C? Additionally, w
  20. Two questions... many thanks in advance: 1) Per, ​"The Analog-to-Digital input converter (ADC) and Digital-to-Analog output converter (DAC) both use the standard Arduino form factor SPI bus pins and use independent chip selects." Question: For those of us developing our own library variants, what are the CS numbers? I am not seeing this documented. Update: From the attached snippet of the schematic, and the likelihood that "CS" = "SYNC" = "SYNCN" = "CSN" = "SS" among other possible nomenclature, is CS for t
  21. Hello, I have a compile error with the SoftwareSerial library included in ChipKit-core 1.1.0.-18 (the latest released build for manual install at this time). I need the SoftwareSerial.h library for several external devices, but it will not compile the headers on ChipKit boards. I am able to build against the Arduino and Adafruit boards, but all of the Cerebot and ChipKit boards exhibit the same error. Any help would be appreciated. Environment: Arduino IDE 1.6.8 ChipKit-core 1.1.0-18 (latest release build manually installed, also exposed error in 1.1.0.-13)) uC32 (b
  22. Hello, I'm trying to get a Hello World app to work using a chipKit Pro MX4. I've followed along with example code written for a Starter Kit board changing and making adjustments to the MPLAB X Harmony configurator as I go along, although there really isn't that much difference between the two as the sample.x project is written for a PIC32MX795. I'm using the USART driver with the following code in system_config.h (See the configuration code generated by Harmony and stored in the system_config.h file). My state machine simply adds a bunch of strings to the Transmit Buffer Queue using the DR
  23. Hello all This is related to the current hardware: Chipkit Max32 with Network Shield. Issue: Xively library files will not work with chipkit max32+ethernet shield. I have been suffering this change for a while, the MPIDE 2015 release got botched with the arduino update. I had to download the 2015 test release or rely on the totally functional 2013 release. Currently using the MPIDE 2015 test release. So, later on, getting the Xively library files proved to be difficult to utilize, errors on top of errors. Other option was to use the chipkit-core library files also avai
  24. I generated a code for my USART on a chipkit Max32 board using MPLab Harmony based on the tutorial given at this link The code compiles well and uploads to my board but when I try to interface it with my laptop it keeps reading 0xFF on the RX buffer and even when I tried sending a character (e.i: 0x20) the terminal on my computer won't see it. I tried with different terminal emulators (YAT, Realterm), I also downloaded the FTDI driver from but nothing seems to fix or change a thing abo
  25. Hi, I was attempting to use the PmodOLED and was attempting to get it's demo code correctly. The demo code claimed you can use the Pmod Shield header JC, but it did not seem to be working. So, I did a bit of research and found out what the problem was and successfully found a way to fix it and have the Pmod Shield work. Check out my answer below for what you need to do.
