NEW: HI-TECH C(R) PRO for the PIC10/12/16 MCU Family - Now Available
      #49102 - Sun Apr 06 2008 09:52 AM

Denser Code Better Performance
We are very pleased to announce the Public release of our new ANSI C Compiler, with Omniscient Code Generation(TM), supporting the PIC10/12/16 MCU family. It achieves nearly 2X the code density and 38% better RAM usage than IAR’s compiler for PIC16/17, and 30% better code density with 80% better RAM utilization than CCS’ PCM C without using any C-extensions or assembly code. By optimizing interrupt-related contexts, the OCG technology in this new compiler reduces interrupt latency by 40% to 60%

We are also very grateful for all the support we have received from the many testers who, over the past 6 months, participated in our beta program.

HI-TECH C PRO for the PIC10/12/16 MCU Family with OCG:
  • Automatically handles memory banking without requiring special qualifiers;
  • Optimizes the size of each pointer variable in your code based on its usage;
  • Eliminates the need for many non-standard C qualifiers and compiler options;
  • Produces more optimal interrupt context switching code;
  • Customizes the functionality of the included printf library function;
  • Automatically analyzes user assembly and object code files.
  • integrates into the MPLAB® IDE, MPLAB ICD2;
  • integrates HI-TECH Software's IDE, HI-TIDE™ 3;
  • includes Library source - for standard libraries and sample code for I/O drivers;
  • includes macro assembler, linker, preprocessor, and one-step driver; and
  • runs on multiple platforms including Windows (including 64-bit Vista), Linux and Mac OS X.
