8-bit Development Tools
Get Started Now with PIC® Microcontrollers
From intuitive development boards to a cloud-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE), PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) are very easy to use. Follow this quick start guide to see for yourself!
Use MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC), a graphical programming interface plugin included in MPLAB Xpress, to easily configure your MCU’s rich set of peripherals and functions specific to your application.
For rapid prototyping, Microchip offers the general-purpose MPLAB Xpress Evaluation Board. The board is a comprehensive development solution that has been designed so that even the newest developers will find it intuitive. It has all the components you need to get started and was designed with a single objective - to help your ideas take the shortest journey from imagination to reality!
PRO TIP: The Curiosity Board is a cost-effective, fully-integrated 8-bit development platform targeted at those seeking a feature-rich rapid prototyping board.
