The ARM® Toolchain is a collection of tools/libraries used to create applications for ARM microcontrollers. This collection includes compiler, assembler, linker and Standard C and math libraries.

Most of these tools are based on efforts from GNU (www.gnu.org), and some are developed by Microchip. For more information please refer to the release notes.

The Atmel AVR GNU Toolchain is also available as part of Atmel Studio.

Ever wanted to debug a target from another room, or even another country? Now you can. The MPLAB® X IDE Remote USB Debugging plug-in enables all of Microchip’s debugging tools ((MPLAB® ICD 4, MPLAB PICkit™ 4 and MPLAB Snap) to be used from a remote, Ethernet-connected location. Set up is simple -- connect your debug tool to your remote system (which must have wired or wireless Ethernet), run the MPLAB remote server, enable a remote connection through the plugin menu on your host laptop or PC that is running MPLAB X IDE, and go.

The MPLAB® Communications Library must be installed on the remote machine with which the MPLAB® X IDE on the host machine will be communicating. Once the plug-in is installed, see the MPLAB X IDE Help menu, Help Contents, for additional documentation.


Note: This plug-in requires MPLAB X IDE version 3.40 and later.
