Re: Fubarino SDZ - PIC32MZ?!

Wow, those TPS82130SILT are really sweet. But at over $5 each in singles, you're paying a bit of a premium for small space and not having to pick inductors. I sure can see why you like them - the simplicity! Thanks for the tip. BTW, I do have about 10 of the SDZ boards built up and functional (with ...

Re: Using Segger J-Link Against chipKIT Boards

The importer plugin has not yet been released - it's awaiting its final documentation. I hope it will be very soon! I will post an announcement on this forum as soon as it is available. As far as Digilent - I doubt they're planning on releasing any more documentation for that board, but I could be w...

Re: My first PIC32MX ISR not firing, code is hanging

riceman0, I think it's not too common for people to use MPLAB X to program their chipKIT boards at this point. This is primarily because in order to do so, you'd need a hardware programmer, and you'd be operating outside of the 'chipKIT' software ecosystem - i.e. bare metal XC32. The real selling po...

Re: Using Segger J-Link Against chipKIT Boards

avenue33 - Yes, I have (as well as some other chipKIT devs at Microchip) and it works great. I've used it from within MPLAB X. Now, there is a new chipKIT sketch importer being released from Microchip that will allow you to very easily pull chipKIT/Arduino sketches into MPLAB X for complete hardware...

Re: A newbie coming through!

rodah, Well, if you're coming at this with absolutely zero experience, you are going to need to take some baby steps. Like learning C, learning embedded C, learning about the Arduino environment, etc. What exactly is your end goal? What are you trying to accomplish? We can do our best to help you th...

Re: New signed USB Serial drivers -

Demask-

To my knowledge, the existing driver installer will work fine on Windows 10, no update is needed. At least that was my experience on the last 2 Win 10 machines I built. Are you having trouble getting them to install on Windows 10?

Re: PIC32MZ Flash Endurance Questions

Another thing to consider is that those values you see in the data sheet are really, really conservative. I remember a fab tour (back when Microchip would actually take you through one of their fabs during MASTERs) many years ago where I asked one of their flash memory guys how realistic those numbe...
