Using the newest chipKIT board by Digilent, chipKIT WiFire, you can speed up application development for the Internet of Things (IoT) using FlowCloud technology by Imagination Technologies! To learn more, read the blogpost on Digilent’s Blog.
Ever wanted to integrate LED Strips into your chipKIT design? We have just the guide for you! Instructables.com has a new post about how you can do just that with a chipKIT Max32, WS2812 LEDs, and a WS2812 library for MPIDE with example code. Click the image below to see the post!
We’re so very excited to say that chipKIT products will be exhibited at the Microchip booth at Maker Faire Bay Area on May 17th & 18th 2014 (Expo Hall, Booth #303).
A couple of our friends from Digilent will also be at the Microchip booth showing off something really neat with LEDs (take a sneak peek at the image below). You’ll just have to stop by to see it in action!
PONTECH Demo for Maker Faire
Embedded Lab has put together a useful tutorial to build a digital light meter using the chipKIT Uno32 board, the chipKIT Basic I/O Shield and the BH1750 digital light sensor. Light meters are used to measure the intensity of illumination in a given area. They are widely used in schools, warehouses, factories, hospitals, office buildings, museums, art-galleries, parking garages, stadiums, and many more, to measure and maintain proper lighting levels.
