MPLAB® X IDE



Microchip unveils MPLAB® X IDE open-source integrated development environment with cross-platform support for Linux, Mac OS® and Windows® users

Microchip MPLAB® X IDE A host of high-performance features have been added to Microchip's new IDE (Integrated Development Environment), including the ability to manage multiple projects and tools with simultaneous debugging, an advanced editor, visual call graphs, and code completion. Also, MPLAB X is unique in the industry with its support for an entire portfolio of 8, 16, and 32-bit microcontrollers—including all 800+ PIC® microcontrollers, dsPIC® digital signal controllers and memory devices. The designers of today’s leading-edge embedded applications are demanding an IDE that provides a solid foundation for high-performance, user-friendly and flexible development. Users also want it to be compatible with a wide range of development tools for a broad and reliable microcontroller portfolio with easy migration, to decrease the learning curve and protect their tool and code investments. MPLAB X provides a single, unified graphical interface for Microchip and third-party tools, including the MPLAB ICD 3, PICkit™ 3 and MPLAB REAL ICE™ debugger/programmers.   Download MPLAB® X IDE
