Step 2: Create and Set Up an MPLAB® X IDE Project for MCU1

Step 2.1 – Connect PIC18F57Q43 Curiosity Nano Evaluation Board to Computer


Connect the USB Micro-B cable from the PIC18F57Q43 Curiosity Nano Board to the computer. MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment (IDE) will use this connection to program and debug the microcontroller (MCU).

Step 2.2 – Create Project


Create an MPLAB X IDE project for the PIC18F57Q43 using the MPLAB XC8 compiler.

Note: We’ll refer to your chosen project location as <your MPLAB X IDE project folder>.

You can refer to the "Create a Standalone Project" page if you would like detailed steps on how to create an MPLAB X IDE project.

Step 2.3 – Install MCC

If needed, install MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC). We will use it to graphically create peripheral drivers for this tutorial.

Note: You can refer to the "Install MPLAB® Code Configurator (MCC)" page if you would like detailed steps on how to do this.
