Using additional 2 UARTs with chipKit Max32 on MPIDE

Lately, When we use chipKit max32 on MPIDE, we find that only Serial, Serial1, Serial2, and Serial3 could be used as UART by default. However, there are two other UARTs in PIC32MX795F512L chip can be utilized. Here, we give you a tip – just modify the Board_Defs.h file in mpide\hardware\pic32\variants\Max32 directory, so that you can use the additional two UARTs.

1. Open Board_Defs.h file, and change the serial port number from 4 to 6.


2. Add the following definition into the file.

	/* Serial port 4 uses UART3 (aka UART2A)*/
	#define _SER4_BASE      _UART3_BASE_ADDRESS
	#define _SER4_IRQ       _UART3_ERR_IRQ
	#define _SER4_VECTOR    _UART_3_VECTOR
	#define _SER4_IPL_ISR   _UART3_IPL_ISR
	#define _SER4_IPL       _UART3_IPL_IPC
	#define _SER4_SPL       _UART3_SPL_IPC

	/* Serial port 5 uses UART6 (aka UART2B)*/
	#define _SER5_BASE      _UART6_BASE_ADDRESS
	#define _SER5_IRQ       _UART6_ERR_IRQ
	#define _SER5_VECTOR    _UART_6_VECTOR
	#define _SER5_IPL_ISR   _UART6_IPL_ISR
	#define _SER5_IPL       _UART6_IPL_IPC
	#define _SER5_SPL       _UART6_SPL_IPC

At last, save the file and restart MPIDE. Now, you can use Serial4(UART2A) and Serial5(UART2B).
