The Digilent Pro MX7 is no longer in production. Once the current stock is depleted, it will be discontinued.

The Digilent Pro MX7 is a microcontroller development board based on the Microchip® PIC32MX795F512L, a member of the 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller family. It is compatible with Digilent's line of peripheral modules (Pmod), and is suitable for use with the Microchip MPLAB® IDE tools. The Pro MX7 is also compatible for use with MPIDE. 

The Pro MX7 is designed to be easy to use and suitable for use by anyone from beginners to advanced users for experimenting with embedded control and network communications application. A built-in programming/debugging circuit compatible with the Microchip MPLAB IDE is provided, so no additional hardware is required for use with MPLAB. The kit contains everything needed to start developing embedded applications using either the MPLAB IDE or the MPIDE. 

The Pro MX7 provides 52 I/O pins that support a number of peripheral functions, such as UART, SPI, and I2C  ports as well as five pulse-width modulated outputs and five external interrupt inputs. Its network and communications features also include a 10/100 Ethernet interface, Full Speed USB 2.0 OTG interface, and dual CAN network interfaces. Ten of the I/O pins can be used as analog inputs in addition to their use as digital inputs and outputs. 

The Pro MX7 can be powered in various ways via USB, or using an external AC-DC power adapter.

    It may look a bit over the top but the fact is this board holds everything that you need in order to cover projects from industrial control to IoT. All of this achieved bu the variety of coms available, I/O and power supply options. Associated with this I tried 2 approaches: UECIDE (quick and easy, Arduino like, but big chunks of code) and MPLabX (if you need to sqeeze the code size and get the most out of it, however the cost is the learning curve, although I've seen much harder than this).
