Reviewing the Wi-FIRE

With silicon production having begun this month, we thought it would be a good time to revisit the chipKIT Wi-FIRE. Although it’s been around since 2014, it’s now in its final form (for now).

Market Watch says it’s definitely the¬†microcontoller to see: “This combination of DSP instructions, a double-precision FPU and a high-speed ADC improves code density, decreases latency and accelerates performance in process-intensive applications,” says Eric Lawson, who wrote the editorial. You can read the full editorial here.

A separate review by Engineer Live instead forcused on the Wi-FIRE’s potential for rapid prototyping and four using in Internet of Things (IoT) applications. It also makes use with MPLAB easier, writes Paul Broughton.
