MPLAB® Harmony is a flexible, abstracted, fully integrated embedded software development framework for the PIC® family of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs). It takes key elements of modular and object-oriented design, adds in the flexibility to use a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) and provides a framework of software modules which are easy to use, configurable for your specific needs and work together seamlessly.
MPLAB Harmony works closely with MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to provide you with a unified software development environment. It can be easily configured with MPLAB Harmony Configurator (MHC), which is available as a plug-in within MPLAB X IDE. The MPLAB Harmony development environment provides software portability across the entire family of 32-bit PIC microcontrollers.
MPLAB Harmony v2 provides extensive middleware support for developing graphical embedded software. The MPLAB Harmony Aria library is integrated into the MPLAB Harmony Graphics Suite (MHGS) to provide an easy to use What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) editor which accelerates development of graphical user interfaces. Additionally, the MPLAB Harmony Display Manager makes it easy to support new display hardware. Other MPLAB Harmony v2 middleware libraries provide support for TCP/IP (including IPv4, IPv6 and many other Internet protocols), popular classes for USB embedded hosts and devices and seamless third-party RTOS integration to simplify embedded software development.
The MPLAB Harmony embedded software development framework is free to download. For information on what is included within the framework and their release versions please read "Release Notes." Additional premium products, including third-party and Microchip solutions, are available for purchase.
We’ve made the foundational code for MPLAB Harmony more compact, enabling efficient designs in small devices.
The foundational Peripheral Library Code conforms to MISRA-C: 2012 Mandatory Specifications. The high quality of design, testing and documentation mean shorter design cycle times, translating to faster time to market.
A plethora of new tools that are built to work with MPLAB X IDE are available to enable you to use your work time more effectively and efficiently for application development.
Here are some training links that can help you get started.
If you have a great idea for embedded software that will enhance the MPLAB® Harmony engineer's experience or fill a technological need, then Microchip has everything you need to get started.

Do you have an MPLAB® Harmony project that you want other developers to hear about? Are you interested in becoming a featured MPLAB® Harmony Software Provider? We want to hear from you! Tell us more about you and what you're working on. We can't wait to hear about the great software that you are developing for PIC32 devices. We may even feature you in one of the many ways that we connect with our developer audience.
All MPLAB Harmony applications have already been ported to the MPLAB Harmony v2.0x framework and BSP. These should work without any other user changes. Considerations below may be needed for user code created in previous versions, depending on custom driver or other middleware usage.
BSPs have changed, and with them specifics about the pin and GPIO management, which may:
Drivers have been changed
PLIBs have changed
Compiler version has changed
Graphics tools have changed (future release)
In Graphics 2.0, all resources are by default stored in SRAM. If you want to use flash memory instead due to size constraints, please download and add the below file to your framework (framework\gfx\gac\gac_source.c.ftl) and provide flash memory access to MHGC.
The MPLAB Harmony Configurator (MHC) is a time-saving hardware configuration utility for MPLAB Harmony, Microchip's award winning software framework. Developers use MHC to get visual understanding and control of the configuration of their target device and application. MHC is a fully integrated tool within MPLAB X IDE.
