I just received a newsletter from Microchip regarding their new range of C compilers for PIC and dsPIC chips. With this new range, they claim smaller and faster code (that goes for C developers of course), 35% smaller and 30% faster than the previous compilers.
|Microchip's new range of C Compilers lets you increase the code speed of any PIC® MCU or dsPIC® DSC by 30%, whilst also cutting code size by 35%.|
MPLAB® XC compilers give you the choice of Free, Standard or Pro code optimisation levels for 8-bit, 16-bit or 32-bit development, or a single C compiler suite to support all 900+ Microchip MCUs and DSCs.
The Free edition of MPLAB XC is a fully functional compiler with no license restrictions for commercial use, whilst the Standard and Pro editions increase code optimisation by up to 25% or 50% respectively. The Pro edition is also available for a free, full-function and unrestricted 60-day trial.
Seamless operation with existing compilers and debugger/programmers in the award-winning MPLAB X and legacy MPLAB IDEs, makes MPLAB XC easy to use and maximises investment in your existing Microchip development tools.
Supports all 8-, 16- and 32- bit PIC MCUs and dsPIC® DSCs
Integrates with MPLAB® X IDE and all Microchip development tools
Different optimization levels to suit your needs with FREE downloads available
