I recently received two types of Pic32 microcontrollers from Microchip, specifically the
PIC32MX270F256B and the
PIC32MX230F256B. I would like to use an Arduino Uno to setup the bootloader and to do all the programming. I found a tool to upload to the board here, but as it is from a 2012 forum here, I cannot figure out what it is exactly used for. It seems to be able to upload hex files, but in which format and to what is unclear to me. I also found Arduino bootloaders for a similar group of microcontroller here, however I cannot tell exactly which version I need, if any, or how to upload it.
Any help on how to use these tools or others would be greatly appreciated as my only experience with Arduino before this is with a simple to program to Arduino Uno.
