The Wi-FIRE is now retired and longer for sale through Digilent. Please check distributor inventory for purchasing options. 

Building on the previous successes with the WF32, the Wi-FIRE uses the same 43 available I/O pins, 12 analog inputs, 3.3 operating voltage, 4 user LEDs, potentiometer, buttons, uses MRF24 on-board wireless module, microSD Card, dedicated SPI Signals and high efficiency switching 3.3V switching power supply for low-power operation. 

Where the boards differ is in what the PIC32MZ processor can deliver. 

The Wi-FIRE is significantly faster than its WF32 counterpart, with 200 MHz operation speed, 2MB of Flash, 512kB RAM, High-Speed USB and a 50MHz SPI. The PIC32MZ core includes the MIPS M5150 CPU Core from OpenOCD

    The best of the best

    Posted by Paul Noreen Gonzales on 20th Jun 2021

    This board is the best in its class, Digilent has been designing the best tools and devkits since its existence in the industry, and they have been until now, I hope to see more of the Chipkit lineup in the future, it the best development solution that offers best of everything features, design, crossplatform, name it they got it. Digilent team keep up the good hard work, We appreciate what you do.
