Re: WiFi Shield

Abe, that looks awesome. The more viable WiFi shields out there, the better. And even cooler is your Open Robot. Nice job-

Re: Useless forum software

Dang it! And I thought I was smart enough to catch that. Lesson learned.

Re: Are there plans to create Ardunio boards for dsPIC too ?

Gene, I'm pretty sure that somebody from Microchip (can't remember exactly who) said to me during Maker Faire that the C++ version of C30 would be available fairly shortly. I know that it is being worked on, so it's just a matter of time, and likely not too long of a time . . . We'll see. :-) *Brian

Re: Useless forum software

So the _exact_ same question got asked 2 posts above, which I tried to answer accurately. Was my answer not clear? It is not personal, it is not independent. Since chipKIT is open source hardware, it doesn't have a 'company' per se behind it running and controlling everything. All of the various par...

Re: Simple and cheap network shield for MAX32

Jacob, Agreed with the point of your post above. However, my understanding is that Digilent is not being subsidized in any way by Microchip other than the standard volume discounts that are negotiated with any customer that buys enough parts. Obviously, I'm neither Microchip nor Digilent, but I've b...

Re: Uno32 Compiler Documentation

Mike, both are true. The compiler that comes with MPIDE is a fork of the the C32 compiler from Microchip, which is a gcc derivative. The compiler fork was created by Microchip specifically for this project. For 99% of the questions you may have, the documents for C32 will answer your question. C32 i...

Re: Question: Which WiFi Board for UNO32?

Alan, Yes, the current situation at Surveyor is not good. There are some really important things going on behind the scenes that will eliminate the current problems with customer support and getting orders shipped. I can't say anymore, or when the changes will take effect. But (hopefully) Surveyor c...

Re: A new and easier way to debug chipKIT sketches in MPLAB

I'm pretty sure the latter. I've seen it on other boards. The robot doesn't know how many 'clean' posts it needs on a given board before it can post links, so my guess is that it keeps adding these clean posts and trying with links until it can succeed.

Re: A new and easier way to debug chipKIT sketches in MPLAB

Keith, the comment you are replying to is robo-spam. Generic text, meant to look close enough to a real comment that it can be sprayed in any forum about anything and not look _too_ out of place. At least it seems that way to me.

Re: Question: Which WiFi Board for UNO32?

I do the software for Surveyor (since Howard died) and I'm very familiar with the Matchport radio. It would work _great_ with a chipKIT board. As long as you _only_ need to use it as a 'network' serial port. The only thing it does is serve up to IP ports that correspond to the two hardware UARTs on ...
