I am planning a few tutorials for the new boards in the coming weeks. What tutorials would you like to see? From beginner to more advanced?

Well, as a hint, see on forum what problems people are facing. Or, look on Arduino community and see what projects are popular among users - projects which don't compile for pic32 using the source from Arduino.

  • how to set a complete and functional development chain (other than mpide);
  • PCF8583 usage;
  • IR (infrared) protocols;
  • CNC controller;
  • GPS logger,
  • Weather station;
  • etc.

These are the most searched on google. Anyway, somebody will have to check which examples are working on chipkit32 and concentrate in solving the ones which don't work, to avoid reinventing the wheel.

These things (and others) had to be solved by the chipkit development team before the release which in my opinion was a bad start.

direct IO access programming pic timers

I'm also interested in the PIC32 functions which aren't available in the standard AVR Arduino. In particular, the timers and the input capture function.

The PIC32 family datasheet description of the Input Capture module at is fine as far as it goes, but I'm still not sure how to implement some working code from within the Arduino-like environment. Seems like a significant amount of register setup is required in any case.

It would be very helpful to post the tutorial that i from beginner up to most advance. It will help much.

I'd like to see a tutorial on the best way to create a proper shield for the Uno32 and Max32 boards. For instance, I am a hobby robot builder, and I'd like to know the best ways to take advantage of all the peripheral devices on both Uno32 and especially the Max32.

I'm interested in using the usarts at other baud rates than 9600. Is it possible ? if it is possible, is it with all serial on Max 32. I'm particularly interested on 38400 at least on two of them.

A CAN Bus tutorial would come handy :-)
