Integrated development environment, compilers and hardware probe are now available for Microchip's PIC32 family of MCUs

Green Hills Software's software development product suite, including the Multi integrated development environment, Green Hills compilers and Green Hills Probe, are now available for Microchip's PIC32 family of MCUs. The PIC32, based on the MIPS M4K core, is Microchip's first 32bit MCU family.

'We welcome Green Hills Software into the Microchip development tools programme', says Patrick Johnson, Director of Microchip's High-Performance microcontroller Division.

'Green Hills Software's embedded development solutions are recognised industry-wide as leading edge, and its MULTI integrated development environment enables PIC32 MCU software developers to maximise performance while minimising code sise, development and product unit costs'.

The Green Hills solution for Microchip's PIC32 family comprises: the Multi integrated development environment; Green Hills MIPS compilers; the DoubleCheck integrated static analysis tool; and the Green Hills Probe, which offers reliable and efficient debugging via the PIC32 EJTAG debug port.

'While MIPS cores have been traditionally aimed at high-end processor designs, Microchip has developed a MIPS-based microcontroller family that brings high performance to embedded applications requiring minimum footprint, power and cost', says David Kleidermacher, Chief Technology Officer, Green Hills Software.

'We are pleased to provide Green Hills Software compilers, performance analysis tools, and the complete Multi tool suite, which are all optimised for the PIC32 family to help realise this vision of top-end performance efficiency'.

The PIC32 MCU family is an extension of Microchip's portfolio of nearly 500 MCUs and DSCs into 32bit complexity, with a compatible pin and peripheral migration path from its 16bit families.

The PIC32 is a high-performance 32bit microcontroller family, based on the M4K core from MIPS Technologies.

M4K is a state-of-the-art 32bit, low-power, RISC processor core with the enhanced MIPS32 Release 2 Instruction Set Architecture.

In addition to its high-performance CPU and low interrupt latency, the PIC32 family supports the MIPS16e 16bit instruction mode for compact code, high-performance DMA, EJTAG debugging, flexible power-management modes and internal code protection.

The Green Hills Software solution for Microchip's PIC32 MCU family is available now. Request a free brochure from Green Hills Software....
