ARDUINO-UNO like board with PIC32MX220F032D.

Generally this board outperforms ARDUINO-UNO in regard to hardware capabilities as you can see from the table below:

  PIC32-PINGUINO-MX220ARDUINO-UNO
CPU 32 bit 8 bit
CLOCK 40 MHz 20 MHz
FLASH 32 KB 32 KB
RAM 8 KB 1 KB
USB YES NO*
LOW PWR YES** NO
GPIO MAX 40 MHz 5 MHz
ADC 1.1 MSPS 15 KSPS
DMA YES 4 CH NO
UEXT YES NO

* require additional chip FT232 or ATMega with USB
** hardware allows power down to 10 uA operation for hand-held battery apps

The only Pinguino shortcoming compared with Arduino is the smaller community and the less projects available ready for use.

FEATURES

  • PIC32MX220F032D 32 bit, 40 Mhz microcontroller 32KB Flash 8KB RAM
  • Ultra Low Power design
  • Li-Po battery connector for hand-held applications
  • UEXT connector which allows many existing modules like RF, ZIGBEE, GSM, GPS to be connected
  • Two LEDs
  • One USER BUTTON
  • RESET button
  • A Mini USB connector is used, which is common and used in most cell phones, so you do not have to buy other cables
  • All PIC ports available on a 0.1" connector match the ARDUINO platform and the second row with correct 0.1"step
  • The ICSP signals provided on a 0.1" step connector if you do not want to use Pinguino IDE and you want to program this board with PIC-KIT3.

FAQ

  • I do everything just like in the examples with MOD-GSM but I receive no data. What do I do different?
  • You might need to cut the UEXT cable (or create your own wires) connecting the MOD-GSM with the board so that only data call signals are left, refer to MOD-GSM with DUINOMITE boards (CTS is held at a high position, which means it will not send data)
