The Cerebot MX4cK is a microcontroller development board based on the Microchip PIC32MX460F512L, 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 MX4cK 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 MX4cK 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. A built in programming/debugging circuit compatible with the Microchip MPLAB® IDE is provided on the board, so no additional hardware is required for use with MPLAB. The kit contains everything needed to start developing embedded applications using either the MPLAB® IDE or the MPIDE.
The Cerebot MX4cK provides 74 I/O pins that support a number of peripheral functions, such as USB controller, UART, SPI and I2C™ ports as well as five pulse width modulated outputs and five external interrupt inputs. Fifteen of the I/O pins can be used as analog inputs in addition to their use as digital inputs and outputs..
The Cerebot MX4cK can be powered via USB, or an external power supply that may be either an AC-DC power adapter, or batteries.
