The above example projects demonstrate the functionality
of the various peripherals of the board including user input, serial communication,
Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Network connectivity. The demo is built
upon the following Microchip's freely distributed support libraries:
- Microchip Graphics Library v 3.06
- Microchip TCP/IP Stack Library v 5.42
- Microchip MDD File System Library 1.4.0
- Microchip USB support source files
- FreeRTOS was used to make all tasks run virtually simultaneously. FreeRTOS
is a freely distributed RTOS with excellent support and online documentation.
Version used is v7.3.0. MPLAB has support for FreeRTOS (Tools/RTOS viewer).
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.
