With enthusiasm I unpacked my Max32, downloaded and unzipped the IDE (mpide-0022-chipkit-win-20110530), plugged in the Max32 via a USB cable (jumpers left at default), allowed Windows 7 to install the FT232R USB RS232 driver automatically and ran the IDE. I opened Blink.pde from the examples folder, compiled and tried to download to the board. I got a avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 message. can anyone help please?

[color=#008000]Also, is there a board description similar to anywhere?[/color]

[color=#FF0000]SORRY; I forgot to select the board - all OK now.[/color]

For a board description, this is about the best I've seen: [url][/url]

The Eagle files are on Digilent's page (I would expect to find them on github, but nope): [url],892,894&Prod=CHIPKIT-MAX32[/url]

I agree that the official documentation is severely lacking (to the extent of non-existent), for an Arduino compatible.

Thanks for the link to the documentation at themakersworkbench. It would be good to have this on the Digilent Inc. site; I'll suggest it to them.
