Microchip and Digilent create Network and Basic I/O shields and online support resources

26 SEPTEMBER 2011

Microchip announces expanded capabilities for the 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller-based chipKIT™ Development Platform for the Arduino™ community.
In addition to launching two shields for the chipKIT platform, the chipKIT Basic I/O Shield and Network Shield, Microchip and Digilent have developed new online support resources for the Arduino™ community, including a software library for Ethernet, CAN and USB, as well as an online chipKIT forum and wiki. The shields and online support resources enable non-engineers to take advantage of the high-performance, 32-bit PIC® microcontroller-based chipKIT development platform to add more features into their projects to enhance functionality and collaboration. The chipKIT development platform is a 32-bit Arduino solution that enables hobbyists and academics, with no background in electronic engineering, to easily and inexpensively integrate electronics into their projects. The platform consists of two PIC32-based development boards and open-source software that is compatible with the Arduino programming language and development environment.
