Lee Goldberg, of EDN, takes the chipKIT Wi-FIRE–Digilent’s latest chipKIT board, powered by Microchip’s 32-bit PIC32MZ microcontroller–combines it with Imagination’s FlowCloud service, and proves for himself that building an Internet of Things (IoT) application out of the box can actually be quite simple!

QEMU Simulator for PIC32 and chipKIT

QEMU - Quick EMUlator
QEMU – Quick EMUlator

QEMU (short for “Quick EMUlator”) is a generic and open-source machine emulator/virtualizer, and now a port of QEMU for PIC32 MCUs is available, which means some chipKIT boards are now supported! The supported families include PIC32MX7 and PIC32MZ, and several boards including chipKIT Max32 and chipKIT Wi-FIRE are among the list of supported boards.

Serge has posted some of this information on the forum, and he welcomes volunteers to enhance and extend the simulator with more peripherals and board types. Check out build instructions and examples for yourself on the wiki at GitHub.
