Purchased CHIPKIT MAX32 with Network shield hardware and downloaded MPIDE as well as libraries for ethernet and USB. Board working for USB host and LED blinking. When compiling Ethernet example programs, it gives compiling error :

CPU/ Board combination not defined.

Can you provide solution ?

Which example sketch are you using?

More specifically you need to make sure you selected the chipKITEthernet examples, the Ethernet examples are not for the chipKIT product line.

I'm having the same problem. I have the ChipKit Network Shield attached to the ChipKit Max32. Power is provided by the USB on the Max32.

I'm using the ChipKITTelnetServer example and when running Verify, get the following messages:

\mpide\libraries\chipKITEthernet\utility\chipKITEthernetAPI.c: In function 'InitializeBoard': \mpide\libraries\chipKITEthernet\utility\chipKITEthernetAPI.c:121:3: error: #error Board/CPU combination not defined

All the other ChipKitEthernet examples I've tried have the same problem.

Any ideas about how to fix this?

I was using Board -> ChipKIT Max32-USB for Serial

When I changed that to "ChipKIT Max32" everything worked fine.
