This development board is an excellent choice for those who have previously worked with UBW or Arduino and found them lacking in CPU power, memory, I/O pins, or sophisticated software. The UBW32 offers a significant upgrade in I/O and CPU capabilities, with only a slight increase in cost.
The UBW32 serves as a robust stand-alone development platform for the USB PIC32 chip. It features a user-friendly USB bootloader, allowing you to write your own code and download it to the board without needing any additional programmer, tools, or software. For low-level debugging, you can also attach an ICD2/ICD3 or other PIC debugger.
The PIC32 chip supports USB OTG, USB Mass Store, USB Virtual Com Port, and USB Host roles. The board includes a footprint for a USB connector on the bottom, allowing you to connect any USB device to the UBW32. A jumper is also provided to power the VBUS 5V USB wire if you program your UBW32 to be a USB Host.
Sparkfun's collaboration with Brian Schmalz has resulted in this product. A portion of each sale contributes to product support and ongoing development.
