Hello everyone
Maybe someone know when microchip give us new PIC32MZ? I heard that A1 revision of DA  has many errors.

Hi,
Which MZ?
PIC32MZ__EF__  
This is the new MZ with a ADC that work.
It is now on revision A3, Datasheet and Errata documents are on Microchip Website,
There are still some Errata on the ADC and other peripherals.

My FAE says the DA chips will be released soon. I did not ask about the Eratta.

I think they won't release it if there are too many bugs. AFAIK, It's an oversized model of MZ with most extra pins without useful connections except SEG.

I assume close to 30 of them are for the LCD display. That would bring the smaller one close to the 144 pin MZ in io or the next one up.

The upcoming PIC32MZ DA series contains a DDR2 memory controller and a 2D 32-bit (RGBA) graphics controller, but remove the FPU according to a leaked datasheet that appeared here earlier this year.

Will we be able to run embedded linux on this PIC32?!
 



With external RAM in the order of 16Meg bytes (4Meg minimum) one could run ucLinux.
512 Meg ram cam run full Linux.
but it would be slow when compared to most 1Ghz ARM.
But why bother when platforms like Beaglebone and Rasberry PI are very well established and supported?

From my recollection of the DA datasheet which leaked (I wish I had saved it, dammit) and masters slides, the 144pin TQFP/LQFP version comes with 32MB on-package DDR2 RAM, no external DDR2 bus. The larger, BGA only packages support up to 128MB external DDR2.
It also has full SD-Card support on the SQI bus, so booting Linux from an image on SD is supported.
I wish they had retained the FPU, as now it looks like we will have decent graphics speed with the on-board 2D accelerated 'GPU', but have lost the processing horsepower to fully take advantage of it. Go figure.
