Note: This revision is now retired. Please see the updated Digilent Pro MX7.
The chipKIT™ Pro MX7 is a microcontroller development board based on the Microchip® PIC32MX795F512L, a member of the 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller family. It is compatible with Digilent's line of peripheral modules (Pmod), and is suitable for use with the Microchip MPLAB IDE tools. The chipKIT Pro MX7 is also compatible for use with the chipKIT MPIDE development environment.
The chipKIT Pro MX7 is designed to be easy to use and suitable for use by anyone from beginners to advanced users for experimenting with embedded control and network communications application. A built in programming/debugging circuit compatible with the Microchip MPLAB® IDE is provided, so no additional hardware is required for use with MPLAB. The kit contains everything needed to start developing embedded applications using either the MPLAB IDE or the MPIDE.
The chipKIT Pro MX7 provides 52 I/O pins that support a number of peripheral functions, such as UART, SPI, and I2C ports as well as five pulse-width modulated outputs and five external interrupt inputs. Its network and communications features also include a 10/100 Ethernet interface, Full Speed USB 2.0 OTG interface, and dual CAN network interfaces. Ten of the I/O pins can be used as analog inputs in addition to their use as digital inputs and outputs.
The chipKIT Pro MX7 can be powered in various ways via USB, or using an external AC-DC power adapter.
