I have successfully complied and downloaded to an ChipKit UNO32.

If I start from the simple: Examples-> Basics-Blink code, all works fine.

If I just try to add the Sketch-> Import Library...-> Servo header and try to compile I get many errors.

I am guessing this library is not yet supported. I was hoping to use a servo. Do you have any recommendations?

Thank you.

The port of the servo library to the chipKIT PIC32 platform has been completed and will be in the next release, which should be out in the next few days.

awesome! Now I just need a port for the HL1606 strip code :)

Thank you both for your kind, helpful and clear responses. I am anxious to use the new upcoming release.

Thanks again.

Hi, Are you the Clint Kohl I met at ASEE last year and this year?

Yes! I am a Professor of Computer Engineering at Cedarville University and we have talked several times. Thank you for remembering me. We have used your I/O explorer board for our Lawn Mowing robot very successfully. I am now enjoying your new Chip Kit Products. I am new to the arduino world but very familiar with the Microchip Pic Processors. The Low cost and easy learning curve should prove to be very helpful for my students at Cedarville University.

I have recently built a small servo based robot and am using the ChipKit Uno32 as the main processor. I mailed it to my nephew who is a Jr. Computer Engineering student in Iowa. I wanted to get him started with some easy to use hardware.

I will continue to watch for your new software release.

I really appreciate the great work you are doing.
