MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment

  Download the MPLAB® X IDE installer for your platform from the buttons on the left.
  Install MPLAB® X IDE by running the installer you downloaded on your computer.

MPLAB® X IDE is used to write and edit code, build projects using the built-in assembler or a compiler, debug projects and program PIC® microcontrollers either virtually in a simulator or using a hardware programmer/debugger.

  Install the MPLAB® XC16 Compiler by running the installer you downloaded on your computer.

The MPLAB® XC16 C Compiler can compile code written for any of our 16-bit PIC® microcontrollers. The free version supports the entire range of 16-bit devices without any restrictions on time or code size. The only limitation is that some levels of optimization are disabled.

Proteus VSM

Demo

  Install Proteus VSM by running the installer you downloaded on your computer.

Proteus VSM is a visual, interactive simulator that mimics a programmer/debugger and a target board with a PIC® microcontroller. While it is required for the "Getting Started" lab exercise, it is optional for the others. Essentially, Proteus VSM is an alternative to hardware tools. If you don't have a debugger and the demo board specified for the exercises, Proteus VSM may be used instead.

This demo version is not time limited, but it can only simulate a subset of Microchip demonstration boards with unmodifiable schematics as the target board.
