If you’ve been wanting to use an accelerometer in your project, there’s a great tutorial on Instructables using a chipKIT Max32 and LabVIEW. With the included code, you could be up and running in a flash. Check it out!
Do you use LabVIEW? Well even if you don’t, you might decide to try it once you hear what’s in store for those who do. A relatively new LabVIEW interface called LINX actually supports the chipKIT platform, though support really isn’t such a new thing. As you can see in this post from a year ago, LINX actually started out as LIFCK (LabVIEW Interface For chipKIT).
In more recent news, this post provides a brief summary for how LabVIEW’s LINX and chipKIT together provide students and hobbyists a low-cost DAQ (Data Acquisition) or Control System.
