Development Environment

MPLAB IDE integrated toolset and C compilers enable fast development of embedded applications and include a host of free software for optimized code.

Microchip's LCD PIC microcontroller family is a Flash-based, power-managed family of LCD-enabled microcontrollers. Microchip’s LCD PIC microcontroller family meets low-power design requirements including driving the LCD display in sleep mode while maintaining desired functional features. With the ability to select from an array of available LCD PIC microcontrollers, a designer can provide additional value by creating scalable designs and products. This gives the designer flexibility to offer different solutions based on the demand of varying market segments all from a single design.
