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-MX220 ARDUINO-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)

WARNING

Do not use the "programmer-to-go" button when there is no image on the OLIMEX PIC-KIT3 or MICROCHIP PIC-KIT3 because that might put your microcontroller in an irrecoverable state. We have tested the mentioned scenario and we can confirm it destroys PIC32 chips (using both our and the original Microchip PICKIT3). We don't take responsibility if you break your chip that way.
