Finally, we designed a new board with a low cost 32 bits PIC. This board will become the generic-PIC32-board in Pinguino. Based on a PIC32MX250F128B, with 128k of flash and 32k of RAM, 17 I/O, 2 UART etc….
The same board can be used with a PIC32MX220F032B, the same chip used on OLIMEX Pinguino-MX220. We are working on the bootloader which should work with the internal oscillator of the chip ( no external crystal on this board ).
This board can be built ‘in a garage’ as usual !! With this new design, Pinguino stay in its original spirit. Kicad files and even a Gcode file to build it with a milling machine should be soon available.
