MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is a software program that runs on a PC (Windows®, Mac OS®, Linux®) to develop applications for Microchip PIC® microcontrollers and dsPIC® digital signal controllers.

MPLAB X IDE provides an extensive array of features for developing and debugging applications on any device from the PIC microcontroller product family. However, as with any feature-rich program, it can be a challenge to learn to use all of its capabilities or even to find out what all of those capabilities are. The goal of this section of the Developer Help site is to help you to discover and learn how to use the many available features that are sure to simplify and enhance your development activities.
