Header File Customizations

|

We've started to get some requests for header file support for ICD3, Microchip's new In-Circuit Debugger. There are some differences between ICD3 and previous generations of ICD. These differences are reflected in the device header files Byte Craft Limited issues for MPC.

If you're using MPC with MPLAB and ICD3, please contact Byte Craft Limited for more information about obtaining updated header files.

PIC16 Enhanced support in MPC

PIC16 Enhanced graphic

Byte Craft Limited will support Enhanced PIC16 with our MPC Code Development System. A PIC16-specific code generator will ship with MPC at the same time as silicon general availability.

How can I place variables in different banks?

|

TR 18037 standardized named address spaces, and MPC uses these to assist in placing variables in different banks.

MPC

There's more program data in my Intel Hex file than appears in the listing file. What is the extra data?

If you're working with MPC for a Microchip PIC, remember that the program words are longer than one byte. The extra size represents two bytes per instruction.

I use MPLAB-C. Can I upgrade to the latest version of MPC?

Byte Craft Limited developed MPC Code Development System as the first C compiler for Microchip PICmicros. MPLAB-C is a separate product developed by Microchip, who licensed the MPC source code from Byte Craft. The two products have been separately developed since the initial license.

I have an application developed with an old version. Will it compile properly with the latest version?

| | | | | | | | | |

Yes. If you have written your program according to our recommended practices in the product documentation, upgrading should be seamless. All Byte Craft Limited Code Development Systems have backward compatibility with previous language constructs.

Please note:

  • Improvements in the compiler can alter the generated code; this may impact your testing.
  • Device header files may change between versions. If you've written customized device header files, they may require some revision. Simply examine the stock headers that we ship with the product.

Something SPECIAL: put variables anywhere

| |

Byte Craft Limited's compilers support SPECIAL memory: user-declared memory blocks accessed (read and written) by software. The compiler manages allocation for SPECIAL memory similarly to system RAM and ROM. The result is a seamless integration of off-chip or on-chip memory resources into C language programs.
