I'm trying to use one library ( for Arduino with the Chipkit UNO 32, but i cant. When i upload to board and then go to serial monitor, nothing appears to me.

Does anyone make it work?

What code are you using? What version of the chipKIT Core, Arduino IDE, etc are you using?

Im based on rfid RC522 miguel balboa library,my main program is one of the examples DUMPINFO. My chipkit is Uno32 with pic32. Im using Atom with the package PlataformIO, (should be using ArduinoIDE?).

Thank you

I would suggest trying it with the Arduino IDE, certainly. That way we can rule out if it's something the PlatformIO is doing wrong.

When i upload from Arduino IDE, first appears A warning "library MFRC522 claims to run on [avr architectures and my be incompatible with your current board which runs on STM32F1 architectures], and then in serial monitor nothing appears

Are you sure you have it set to the right board? The STM32F1 is an ARM chip, not a PIC32...

I dont know why but i relaunch arduino ide and then the warning was: "library rfid-master claims ti run over(avr,STM32F1, teensy, esp8266) architectures and may be incompatible with you current board wich runs on (pic32) architetures"

That is only a warning, though. The library doesn't know it's compatible with PIC32 - it's just a setting in the file.

It should really be set to work with any architecture since it doesn't do anything at all that is architecture dependant.

Have you had other sketches working on your UNO32 board?
