MPLAB PIC Microchip Software Integrated Development Environment

What is MPLAB IDE?

MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is a free, integrated toolset for the development of embedded applications employing Microchip’s PIC?and dsPIC?microcontrollers. MPLAB IDE runs as a 32-bit application on MS Windows?, is easy to use and includes a host of free software components for fast application development and super-charged debugging. MPLAB IDE also serves as a single, unified graphical user interface for additional Microchip and third party software and hardware development tools. Moving between tools is a snap, and upgrading from the free software simulator to hardware debug and programming tools is done in a flash because MPLAB IDE has the same user interface for all tools.

MPLAB IDE features include:

Flexible customizable programmer’s text editor

Fully integrated debuggingwith right mouse click menus for breakpoints, trace and editor functions

Tabbed editoroption or separate source windows

Recordable macros

Context sensitive color highlightingfor assembly, C and BASIC code readability

Don’t know where to start?
Download MPLAB IDE and use the tutorial in the MPLAB IDE User’s Guide at the bottom of this page to explore how easy it is to create an application. Write assembly code, build and assemble your project with MPLAB’s wizards, then test your code with the built-in simulator and debugger. When you are ready to test your own application, select one of our low-cost debugger/programmers to program a device and analyze your hardware.

Please send your ideas, those are very important for our success…
