If you are wanting to delve into the depths of the PIC32 chip, the PIC32 Family Reference Manual is the place to be, as well as the data sheet for your chip.

The different boards use different PIC32 chips. Those chips are in three families, with one data sheet per family:

DP32, Fubarino Mini, etc: PIC32MX1xx/2xx data sheet

UNO32, uC32, etc: PIC32MX3xx/4xx data sheet

MAX32, Fubarino SD, etc: PIC32MX5xx/6xx/7xx data sheet

Microchip, very helpfully, don't have an actual index for the Family Reference Manual, only a searchable reference documentation list. So here is an index of the PIC32 FRM for your delectation:

01. Introduction 02. CPU for Devices with M4K Core 03. Memory Organization 04. Prefetch Cache Module 05. Flash Programming 06. Oscillators 07. Resets 08. Interrupts 09. Watchdog Timer and Power-up Timer 10. Power-Saving Modes 12. I/O Ports 13. Parallel Master Port 14. Timers 15. Input Capture 16. Output Compare 17. 10-Bit A/D Converter 19. Comparator 20. Comparator Voltage Reference 21. UART 23. Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) 24. Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) 27. USB On-The-Go 29. Real-Time Clock and Calendar (RTCC) 31. DMA Controller 32. Configuration 33. Programming and Diagnostics 34. Controller Area Network (CAN) 35. Ethernet Controller 37. Charge Time Measurement Unit (CTMU)

And for $28 you can get one of these 300+ page monsters printed at Staples. (I have a very slow inkjet....) :D

My favorite is the

PIC32 Peripheral Libraries for MPLAB C32 Compiler

just don't forget the

#include <plib.h>
