Note: This revision is currently retired. Please see the updated Max32.
The chipKIT™ Max32 is a prototyping platform that adds the performance of the Microchip® PIC32 microcontroller. The Max32 features a USB serial port interface for connection to the IDE and can be powered via USB or an external power supply.
The Max32 board takes advantage of the powerful PIC32MX795F512 microcontroller, which features a 32-bit MIPS processor core running at 80 MHz, 512K of flash program memory and 128K of SRAM data memory. In addition, the processor provides a USB 2 OTG controller, 10/100 Ethernet MAC and dual CAN controllers that can be accessed via add-on I/O shields.
The Max32 can be programmed using Mult-Platform IDE (MPIDE). In addition, the Max32 is fully compatible with the advanced Microchip MPLAB® IDE and the PICKit™3 in-system programmer/debugger. To download the IDE, please visit http://www.chipkit.net/started.
