Microchip Launches MPLAB IDE Controller Software

December 03, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Microchip Technology Inc. (Chandler, AZ) introduced its new MPLAB® Integrated Development Environment (IDE) v6.10 software, which is a 32-bit desktop development environment that can decrease design time by offering the flexibility to edit, compile, debug and emulate embedded designs without leaving the MPLAB environment.

The software supports Microchip's PIC16 mid-range family and the PIC18 family of PICmicro® microcontrollers. Designers can also use the MPLAB IDE to design and develop code for the dsPIC™ digital signal controllers.

The MPLAB IDE software is available at no cost and is downloadable from Microchip's website.
