The project aims to bring the industrial PIC32 Development working of 32-bit microcontrollers into the hands of the students. With 32-bit processing (the next version to the 16-bit microcontrollers used in courses today), learning incredible and advanced peripherals such as USB-OTG, CAN and high definition graphics (among others) becomes realizable. The goal of the project is to learn how these peripherals work and how to implement them on such an advanced platform. Throughout this project, these resources will be combined to make simple API’s for students to use, vastly decreasing complexity and development time for laboratory exercises and projects. Once the firmware is stable, custom circuitry will be designed and manufactured with every single peripherals so that students can focus on the industrial development rather than mini circuits. Upon completion of the product, future students will have: A custom circuit board built specifically for laboratory assignments relating to industrial products, a clean and simple API for using advanced peripherals and firmware. These boards will expose our students to some of the most advanced micro controllers on the market today, replacing the decades old technology that is currently used in the classroom.
