Is it possible to program bootloader into a new PIC32F device that for interface to MPIDE? If so, what are the limitations on PIC32F MCU in terms of pin package and/or memory. I am more interested in a smaller 28 pin package. The new PIC32F from Microchip contains a USB bootloader; can this be programmed with required software/bootloader?

Thank you,

Check out this web page It shows several new boards, some with 28 pin chips

You will need a programmer if you build your own.

The bootloader supports pretty much any PIC32 device. The code, and precompiled binaries, can be found here: [url][/url] - it's simple enough to modify the code to add support for a specific board, and there are plenty of examples to copy from.
