Adding chipKIT Uno32 and Max32 Arduino Compatible boards to Fritzing.

Is it possible for you guys to add the new chipKIT Uno32 and Max32 Arduino Compatible PIC32 boards to the program? I have several tutorials coming up and would love to illustrate them with Fritzing. Info on the boards can be found at http://themakersworkbench.com/?q=node/421

I goofed the URL. It should be http://themakersworkbench.com/?q=node/421

Ok third time is a charm right? Info found on the new chipKIT boards can be found here.

Hi Charles,
do you have a contact at Digilent we could talk to? We found the Eagle files on their product page, but it would be good to talk to them about it.
Thanks,

Hey André can you shoot me an email. I dont want to disclose the contact publicaly.  My email is charlesgantt at themakersworkbench dot com. Microchip and Digilent just released a forum for the chipKIT project as well. http://chipkit.cc/forum

Hey guys,

I was wondering if there was any progress made on adding the chipKIT Uno32 to fritzing? My class is going to be using them this quarter and my professor wanted to use Fritzing to draw our schematics for it.

Any info on the microcontroller can be found here

Well, we contacted them but the communication languished. We will probably now build it anyway and hope for a donation from them later on. :)

By when exactly do you need it?

I've done the Uno32, and I'm working on the Max32. Sorry if you had to wait too long!

Sorry I just saw the updates on this thread. This looks great! Thanks so much!

Finished up the Max32! I'm still working on improving all the boards, but they're definitely Fritzable now.

I've tried to use the Uno32 design but the connectors are not at 0.1in spacing whereas, for example, a 20-pin header is. I've looked at in Inkscape and it shows this discrepancy too, but I'm not able to fix it. Has anyone else succeeded in using this design?

Another problem I experience is that the annular solder rings are too wide to allow traces between them, making it hard to use all pins in a design without making a bigger board
