This project may look like a cute little remote-controlled car, but it is far more than that; it is a GPS-guided autonomous car. Give it some way points and away it goes! FUBAR Labs member Jason put this together using a chipKIT Max32. Read more about how this car was built on the summary page for this project.

Digilent using Fritzing to show a button and LED circuit with chipKIT Uno32

Using Fritzing to show a button and LED circuit with chipKIT Uno32

Fritzing! Some of you may have heard of it, some of you might not have, but maybe you’ve seen images like the above. Whether you know about Fritzing or not, you might want to check out Digilent’s blogpost because you might learn something new about Fritzing and chipKIT that you didn’t already know.

Having said that, you might also want to check out Fritzing’s website, where some of the chipKIT boards have already been added and tagged with ‘chipKIT’ in the Projects section. Since Fritzing is all about open-source hardware, you could download any one of the available chipKIT boards and add it to “My Parts” in the Fritzing app, then do with it as your little heart desires.

Happy Fritzing!

Using a chipKIT Pro MX7, Sam from Digilent has created a Temperature-Sensing Coaster! As he mentions in the post, now you can hit that perfect “Goldilocks” temperature; coffee that is not too hot, not too cold, but just right!

chipKIT DP32 Pin Diagram by Jay Weeks

chipKIT DP32 Pin Diagram

If you’ve never checked out the chipKIT DP32 board, you now have a good reason. The truth of the matter is that the DP32 is a hidden gem in the collection of chipKIT boards because of its low price and its built-in breadboard.

To explore this little gem visit the tutorial on Instructables (or click the image above), and you’ll find all you need to get started!

Whether it’s for the quickly approaching Halloween, or for some other event, it’s not too late to make ghoulish soundtracks or a creaky old door sounds with chipKIT.

Check out this Hackaday simple mini polyphonic synth demo for more info! Also, if you plan on using PWM, you’ll be happy to know there’s already a library written for that! Check out the PWMAudio Library for chipKIT on GitHub.

Happy Sound Making!!

Congratulations to Guido Bonelli for his successful Dr Duino Kickstarter Project!

In this EETimes article, Max Maxfield says that chipKIT Uno32 is compatible with Dr. Duino, a very versatile shield whose purpose is to provide debugging capabilities. This little board is stackable, it comes with switches, LEDs, pots, and much more all conveniently accessible outside of the standard Arduino footprint (not hidden away underneath the stacks of shields), and its open cutout in the center provides access to the board attached below it.

Read more about this neat little board at the two links above and at drduino.com.
