Hello, I am completely new here. I do have several possibel options in mind for using the chipkit max 32. BUT whatever i do or search. there is not an understandable site where i can start from scratch with the understanding and programming of the board. All the sites i visited are made for people who want to promote the latest software or theire supersolution and start right away talking in not understandable shortcuts. I just want to take this board and learn enough to make it do what i want. I can make the led go fast and slow. Now how to go further. There is no link to "see the next page for communication with the "can -bus" (which is what i need in the future). No one tells you "the thing has to be programmed in C++" and where to start looking for the best start. Maybe there is a e-learning spot where the teacher understands "maybe this student does not now anything". lets start with the beginning...... So the bottom line is....... HELP.

Hello maertzdorf,

The best way to learn is experimenting! Here are a few links to look at for references:

chipKIT Wiki

Max32 Reference Manual

Network Shield Reference Manual (you'll need a CAN transceiver for using the CAN module on the PIC32MX795, and the Network Shield provides that)

Follow this directory: [your MPIDE install directory]/reference The HTML documents are from the Arduino website.

Run the demos included with MPIDE. And if you have questions, just post them in the appropriate places in this forum!

Best Regards,

Jordan R
