Dear all,

I am looking for microcontroller board which is having max no of IOS

min 15 digital inos min 10 analog ios Please suggest me model which support MPIDE IDE with Most of library supoorted and working.. If any one already used the suggested board Let me know what are the library it support and where he downloaded from.

The Uno32 has 42 Digital I/O pins and 12 Analog I/O pins and should meet your requirements:

As with the other chipKit boards, it's supported by MPIDE so there's plenty of core libraries around and many others can be ported over from Arduino without too much work.

Ya .On this board i worked previously with UECIDE and MPIDE version library. But my question is there any IDE where i can work on 8 bit,16bit controller of PIC. But support library like arduino.

I have not worked on register level coding. I don't even know how to handle registers. Due to this i am looking for IDE which gives instruction set similar to arduino IDE and support various library

Problem i found Arduino plat form is arduino UNO uses atmega 328 Its price is 250RS (4$)indian rupee for controller Where as PIC 16bit and 8 bit i can get cheaper price. i.e within 150 RS(2$) only IC.

Because of which my project cost increasing. Which i wanted to avoid it. In arduino we don't have options.Next controller arduino due & arduino mega in indian rupee cost is 500$ which is far more.

Thats reason , i wanted to know is there any IDE which work on library supporting .

As far as I know only PIC32 family supported in MPIDE.

Check this source:

Or Check the PIC32MX1xxx or PIC32MX2xxx families what is between 2 - 3 USD in our country.

And you can start from here:

You can buy a PIC32 28 pin SPDIP with the bootloader burned in from for about $3-$4 USD and build your own minimum implementation.

See "DIY chipKIT Board using a Through-Hole SPDIP PIC32" over on the wiki(
