MPLAB X IDE is a software program that runs on a PC (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux) to develop applications for Microchip microcontrollers and digital signal controllers. It is called an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), because it provides a single integrated "environment" to develop code for embedded microcontrollers.

MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment brings many changes to the PIC microcontroller development tool chain. Unlike previous versions of MPLAB which were developed completely in-house, MPLAB X is based on the open source NetBeans IDE from Oracle. Taking this path has allowed us to add many more...

What's New

Version 0.1 (1.70):
  • Makefile Projects
  • Allows you to build outside the IDE via the command line, i.e., no management of the makefile or build process within the IDE. Also, you can choose the artifact of the build that you want to load into IDE memory once the build is complete.
  • PIC32 SKDE connection stabilization
  • Resolved several connection issues.
  • HCS device more...


OS X 10.5 or later

Wow, is PIC still around? The two things I remember about them from years ago was that their programming software was Expensive, and that there was a lot of incompatibility between PIC models. Incompatibility that required you to buy even more Expensive software.

AVR/Arduino beat them by making the development environment cheap enough to win over hobbyists. The AVR design runs the same code across (almost) the whole lineup. AVR architecture is rather more C friendly than other MCUs, which lead to it getting top-notch GCC support. Tons of hobbyist hardware in every size is being built around AVR now, right down to the USB Key-size Digispark.

PIC stuck with their "Pork 'em for the tools" model too long, and missed out on a hobbyist revolution. Too bad.
