Microchip Technology has introduced the MPLAB XC-DSC Compiler to enhance coding and debugging for developers working with dsPIC Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs), commonly used in real-time control systems.

This compiler optimises code development for dsPIC DSCs, offering improved efficiency.

Key Features:

  • Efficient code development and debugging for dsPIC DSCs.
  • Combines Digital Signal Processor (DSP) performance with microcontroller simplicity.
  • Flexible licensing options for cost-effective access.
  • Support for Linux, macOS, and Windows operating systems.

Microchip's MPLAB XC-DSC compiler PRO license enables code size minimisation, faster code generation, and reduced memory and power requirements, unlocking the full potential of DSC designs. Unlike traditional licensing, Microchip offers project-based or as-needed access, enhancing flexibility while reducing costs.

License options:

  • Workstation License: installed and used on up to three host machines by a single engineer.
  • Network Server License: installed on a server and accessible one machine at a time from the network.
  • Subscription License: similar to a workstation license with monthly renewal.
  • Site License: simultaneously accessible by multiple machines/users.

The MPLAB XC compilers support various operating systems, allowing developers to choose their preferred platform for embedded development. These compilers seamlessly integrate with the MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE), streamlining the design process and accelerating time to market.

Pricing and availability:

The MPLAB XC-DSC Compiler is available for free on Microchip's website, with PRO optimisation licensing starting at $44.00.

For further details or license purchase, contact a Microchip sales representative, authorised distributor, or visit Microchip's Purchasing and Client Services website.
