Richard Wall: Getting Started with chipKIT Pro

Last week, we introduced Richard Wall, who has done some fantastic work on our Learn modules. Today I’d like to introduce the first project in his module (the one to do with advanced microcontrollers using the chipKIT Pro MX7).

Using chipKIT Pro and MPLAB X” highlights some of the  important tools that can be helpful in software development. This project introduces you to the synthesis and analysis tools for producing microprocessor C code using the MPLAB X integrated development environment (IDE) on the chipKIT Pro MX7 processor board. It’s a great intro for the rest of the series, which is actually a class Dr. Wall teaches at the University of Idaho.
