Digilent chipKIT Uno32 and Max32 Development Platform

Microchip Technology introduced the chipKIT open-source development platform. The chipKIT platform is compatible with Arduino hardware and software. The 32-bit-microcontroller-based platform enables hobbyists and academics to easily and inexpensively, integrate electronics into projects, even if they do not have a background in electronics engineering. The platform consists of the chipKIT Uno32 development board (clone of the Arduino Uno board) and the chipKIT Max32 (clone of the Arduino Mega board). chipKIT platform was designed and manufactured by Digilent.
