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.
M. Mihalek posted a question in Add-on BoardsHello, 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 Max32 using the "blink" example. 1) What is the probable cause of my failure with the Max32 versus the Uno? 2) What corrective action should I take? Boards in use: Max32 Rev E, Analog SHIELD Rev D, Network SHIELD Rev C Software: passthrough and ramp examples included with the Analog Shield library, Arduino IDE 1.6.13 Note: I had looked at using MPIDE with the chipKIT Max32, but the website for MPIDE recommended the most up version of the Arduino IDE. So, MPIDE is one option (of which I am aware) I have not tried, yet. Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
The websites for the chipKIT Max32 and Network Shield both list multiple revisions of schematic (D vs E for the Max32; D vs F for the Network Shield). Both websites, however, only list a single orderable part number. What revision / version of hardware am I ordering? To add to the confusion, I called Digilent today and the sales gal confirmed with shipping that both units are only shipping revision C. ???
