Fubarino SD Development Board

Part Number: TCHIP010

Status: No Longer Available

Summary:

The Fubarino® SD board brings affordable, breadboard compatible high speed computing power to the Arduino-compatible chipKIT/MPIDE platform. It is able to run almost all Arduino sketches right out of the box, and includes more memory, speed, and I/O pins than a typical Arduino or clone. And it includes a microSD card slot for easy sketch access to huge file storage.

  • How to Enter Programming Mode
How to Enter Programming Mode
Before you can compile and upload a sketch to the Fubarino SD, you must put it into programming mode. This is very simple - simply press and hold the PRG button while you press and release the RESET button. Then release the PRG button. If programming mode was successfully entered, the green LED will rapidly blink. You can then click the Upload button (right pointing arrow) in MPIDE and if your code compiles properly, it will be uploaded.

Note that the serial port that MPIDE uses to upload new code to the Fubarino SD board does not exist until you put the board into programming mode. So it will not show up in the Tools->Serial Port menu until you put it into programming mode.

Additional Information:

Fubarino SD is compatible with the RetroBSD operating system.

Product Features

    • PIC32MX795F512H - 512K Flash, 128K RAM @ 80MHz 32-bit MIPS core
    • MPIDE (Mulit Platform IDE - a fork of the Arduino IDE) supports Fubarino SD board out of the box
    • 45 Digital IO (many are 5V tolerant)
    • 15 Analog inputs (10-bit)
    • 2 hardware serial ports (UARTs) - one accessible on pins 28 (rx) and 29 (tx), the other on pins 8 and 9, plus a serial connection over USB (12Mbps)
    • Comes with headers for easy mounting on a breadboard
    • Directly compatible with 3.3V devices. No level converting necessary.
    • Small form factor - easy to integrate into your project
    • Great for projects that need two hardware serial ports plus a USB connection and file storage
    • Easy to program, no additional hardware is required to load sketches – just plug into a USB port and run MPIDE
    • Can be used as USB to microSD adapter
    • ICSP Header for use with optional Microchip hardware programmer/debuggers (like PICKit3, ICD3 or REAL ICE)
    • Can be powered through USB, or 2.3V to 13V DC input power
    • Extra power and ground pins for ease of wiring into your project
    • microSD slot connected to the PIC32 hardware SPI port
    • microSD card accessible for large file access from your sketches
    • USB bootloader (avrdude compatible) for seamless sketch uploading within MPID
