Re: HMC6352 not responding

It is using only GND, +5V, SDA and SCL without any pullup resistors on the I2C lines. Any suggestions? chipkit logic is 3.3v, also did you see the comments on sparkfun on the bus speed of I2C? This HMC6352 will only work with 100KHz I2C clock, which was mentioned in the datasheet too if your pushin...

Re: No XC32++ discussion

If the compiler that came with the ChipKit IDE can be used in MPLABX then that would be one less obstacle.(If someone knows how I would truly appreciate a link). you can point the mplabx to the mpide compiler, it works fine. however... the headers are all different, so code written for mplabx defau...

Re: IMPORTANT NOTICE TO chipKIT Forum users

could you have not done those change on the chipkit.org wiki? are you migrating the forums as well? if no, why not? why the split. why the need for a new domain, migration and re-registration? is chipkit.org being phased out? ie: will a redirect from the .org to the .net be implemented? will the wik...

Re: SPI on the pic32mx250f128

the pic32 manual tells you what bits for what PPS pins turn on/off what features tieing to what registers. If your using MPIDE, it should take care of it for you. look at the pin diagram for the 28dip, see the pins you need then look at chapter 11.1 - Pehiperal Pin Select and you can see the PPS inp...

Re: Broken malloc/free! Got random crashes? Using String?

are you checking the malloc return was successful? there could be a LOT of things going on here. Remember, this is not a page remapping system, so if you have 64kb free ram, you allocate 24k, then allocate 32 and free the 24, you have a gap below and above of 24 + 8, not a flat 32.. you could be run...

Re: Broken malloc/free! Got random crashes? Using String?

that issue is part of avr-libc which is not provided by arduino (its part of avr-gcc). what makes you think the pic32 compiler uses the same memory.c file in its version of gcc?

did you verify with a test the arduino avr-libc bug is present in the pic32 toolchain?

Re: Bootloader Problem. Please Help

maybe. have you tried grabbing the HEX file output from mpide, then creating a new project in mplabx and importing the hex file and deploying that?

Re: MPIDE Serial Communication Issue

put a delay(5000) in after you open the serial port in the sketch.

you need to open the serial window in MPIDE after its been deployed, so the delay will give you time to open the window and catch the output.

its a timing thing
