Correct Wi-FIRE board under Arduino IDE?

Question

I am using a chipKIT Wi-FIRE Rev C board under Arduino 1.8.2 and there are three entries under Tools > Boards. The "Rev A &B, no FPU" is clearly not the correct one, but there is a "chipKIT wifire" and a "chipKIT wifire 80MHz". Since the Rev C board comes with a PIC32 that has a 200 MHz core, I'm guessing the first one is the correct choice, is that correct? Would have made more sense to label the board files by the revision label, rather than clock frequency ...

Hi @jfrenzel,

The above link is for installing the Digilent core that we put out about 1.5 months ago. The Digilent core only handles the boards that we make like the Chiptkit WI-Fire. 

cheers,

Jon

Hi @jfrenzel,

I believe you are correct and thank you for the input on the Chipkit core. Digilent has recently added a core for Arduino here which does what you suggest with using the REV instead of frequency. I have attached a screen shot below.

cheers,

Jon

Isn't the Digilent link above to an older version of the chipKIT boards? I installed version 1.4.1 by following the instructions on chipkit.net.
