Raspberry Pi expansion board is Arduino compatible
element14's new chipKIT Pi Expansion Board allows users to create, compile and program Arduino based applications within the Raspberry Pi operating system.
Developed in partnership with Microchip Technology, the board features a 32bit PIC32 microcontroller in a prototyping-friendly, low pin count SPDIP package.
The PIC32's performance, memory and integrated peripherals allow users to create applications including touch sensing, audio processing and advanced control.
The chipKIT Pi can interface directly to the Raspberry Pi I/O Expansion header without any additional components, reducing both cost and design complexity.
Users can also tap into a large repository of Arduino tutorials and reference materials.
Claire Doyle, global head of Raspberry Pi, said: "We are delighted to partner with Microchip to develop the chipKIT Pi Expansion Board.
"We are excited by the board's high level of performance, memory and integrated peripherals, which allow users to create applications with a high level of functionality while using prototyping-friendly 32bit mcu packages."
