The Cerebot MX3cK is a microcontroller development board based on the Microchip PIC32MX320F128H, a member of the 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller family. It is compatible with Digilent’s line of Pmod™ peripheral modules, and is suitable for use with the Microchip MPLAB® IDE tools. The Cerebot MX3cK is also compatible for use with the chipKIT™ MPIDE development environment. ChipKIT and MPIDE is a PIC32 based system compatible with many existing Arduino™ code examples, reference materials and other resources.
The Cerebot MX3cK is designed to be easy to use and suitable for use by anyone from beginners to advanced users for experimenting with electronics and embedded control systems. It is intended to be used with either the Multi-Platform IDE, (modified Arduino IDE), MPIDE, or the Microchip MPLAB IDE. The kit contains everything needed to start developing embedded applications using the MPIDE. In order to use the MPLAB IDE, an additional programming/debugging device, such as a Microchip PICkit3 is required.
The Cerebot MX3cK provides 42 I/O pins that support a number of peripheral functions, such as UART, SPI and I2C™ ports as well as five pulse width modulated outputs and five external interrupt inputs. Eleven of the I/O pins can be used as analog inputs in addition to their use as digital inputs and outputs.
The Cerebot MX3cK can be powered via USB, or an external power supply that may be either an AC-DC power adapter, or batteries.
