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:
|CPU||32 bit||8 bit|
|CLOCK||40 MHz||20 MHz|
|FLASH||32 KB||32 KB|
|RAM||8 KB||1 KB|
|GPIO MAX||40 MHz||5 MHz|
|ADC||1.1 MSPS||15 KSPS|
|DMA||YES 4 CH||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.
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.
