Microchip C32 UART library example (modified)

I’ve modified the original UART example that comes with the Microchip C32 compiler to easily handle different UART’s along with adding a compare function that compares what is recieved over the UART to a pre-defined set of characters. See the description in the source below for more. Download the source as a text file here: […]

Gainspan WiFi library for chipKit and Arduino

After forking the DIYSandbox Wirefree library, modified it using compiler directives to also be compatible with the chipKIT Max32 board. This library uses Serial1 for the Gainspan GS1011 module (instead of the original Serial0). It’s retained the same name as the original. The library uses the standard Arduino Server and Client libraries for compatibility with […]

PIC24 or PIC32?

I’m on a journey of learning and need to make a decision on which way I go first. When I ordered my Explorer16 board, I also ordered the PIC32MX460F512L PIM, a 32-bit USB capable 100pin chip for the Explorer 16. I also ordered a couple of books from Amazon but they look to be still […]

Hello world! It’s my electronics blog

First a little about this blog. It’s a log of my various electronics exploits. It includes a raft of things from simple 555 timer projects to rudder pedal controller using USB to fly Flight Simulator to weather instruments to other “just playing” embedded systems that I build. Most will include detailed instructions on how to […]
