chipKIT Oscilloscope Plotter

Hackaday: chipKIT O-Scope Plotter
Live long and prosper – Drawing in the XY mode of an O-Scope

So many chipKIT projects, so little time! At least that’s what Jacob Christ probably thought, but as he taught his microcontroller class at MtSac, he remembered that one project he always wanted to do! What’s that you say? Why drawing in the XY mode of the oscilloscope, of course! So, armed with a chipKIT Fubarino SD and a Microchip MCP4902 DAC, Jacob and students together made art on the o-scope. Sounds too cool to pass up right? To learn how to do it yourself or to see just how they did this, check out the Hackaday post!

May your art and creativity live long and prosper!

chipKIT-based Kickstarter tweeq


Happy Halloween to you ghouls and goblins from the latest, coolest Kickstarter, called tweeq, a micro-sized, Arduino-compatible platform based on chipKIT! At smaller than an M&M, most of these boards fit on the tip of your finger, and yet there is so much potential to make great things with them! Why not give them a gander and give ’em a quid or two; they have various pledge quantities, but hurry! There’s only one month left to show your support!

Digilent Halloween Contest Entry – Human Jukebox

As part of Digilent’s Halloween Design Contest, Sam and Tommy posted their “Human Jukebox” entry on Instructables. This thing is pretty neat, using among other things, the chipKIT uC32, a 1sheeld, and conductive paint (way cool!).

Enjoy!

chipKIT GPS Autonomous Car


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.

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!
