How do I ping my chip in MPLAB X?
Super newbie question here. I just received my Explorer 16/32 board and PIC32MX570F512L PIM, and all I want is to confirm a connection via the USB C connection by downloading the hex file that is on the chip from the factory (it is some weird program that sets the LEDs on the board to seemingly random values).
MPLAB X is a mess for new users. I have the XC32 compiler installed, but I can't create a new project for my target chip because _"the compiler is not installed"_... How do I simply connect to the explorer 16/32 board and download the firmware on the chip?
As I am using Debian Linux (so I am using the linux version of MPLAB X), my "long term" goal is to reset the chip and fuses, so that I can connect a JTAG debugger/programmer to the board instead and use OpenOCD as my primary programmer tool. But baby steps.
