Code Profiling Plug-in

This plugin for MPLAB® X IDE works with the MPLAB REAL ICE™ In-Circuit Emulator to display time-stamped function profiling of running project code, enhancing the software debugging capabilities of MPLAB X IDE.

It is used to measure the percentage of time spent in each function in order to determine where your application may be spending the greatest portion of time over an average collected set of data. It adds pre- and post-amble code to all functions in debug sessions and is available for most devices having data capture. It aids in debugging and code optimization by tracking the number of function calls, parent functions, child functions and execution time. Each license is intended for one user.

The use of this plugin requires an MPLAB REAL ICE™ In-Circuit Emulator.

The Code Profiling plugin supports these device families:

  • PIC18F with data capture
  • PIC24F, PIC24EP
  • dsPIC33FJ, dsPIC33E
  • PIC32MX with data capture

To find out if your device has data capture, please see the online Development Tool Selector.

The Code Profiling plugin DOES NOT SUPPORT these device families:

  • PIC16F1
  • PIC32MZ

These devices use a different type of data capture not supported by the plugin.
