PIC32-PINGUINO-MX220 is ULTRA LOW COST Arduino Like entry level board. The retail price of this board is EUR 9.95!
Here is comparison table of PIC32-PINGUINO-MX220 hardware capabilities and Arduino-UNO:
During Embedded World exhibition Microchip and Olimex will give away 1000 of these boards to interested customers who already work with Pinguino, Arduino or Maple or are curious to try this platform.
The boards are assembled and tested now and today we start the final bootloader programming.
These processors are very very new and Pinguino development team worked hard last week to add support for them in the new Pinguino IDE.
Today the bootloader and the IDE were tested and everything works.
Now is time to port the demo applications for Bluetooth and Zigbee connectivity which we will demostrate on our booth.
This year we co-exhibit with MOUSER so you can see us on their booth. If you are visiting Embedded World you are welcome to pass by and pickup your free PINGUINO 🙂
