The Microchip PIC32 processor is a 32-bit embedded-system controller chip based on the MIPS processor, the RISC architecture treated by many textbooks on computer architecture. The easiest way to experiment with this device is to obtain a PIC32 Starter Kit.
Check our list of projects that explore the use of the PIC32 processor in a university environment.
