Cross-Platform Using MPLAB X IDE, users can run their favorite toolset and develop their next embedded application on Windows®, Linux® or Mac® OS X. Motor Control and Drive Design Solutions MPLAB XC16 C Compiler for PIC24 MCUs and dsPIC DSCs The MPLAB XC16 C Compiler includes a complete ANSI C standard library, including string manipulation, dynamic memory allocation, data conversion, timekeeping and math libraries. The compiler has a powerful code optimizer. Other 16-bit MCU compilers generate as much as 165% more code for the same application. The assembler comes with the MPLAB XC C Compiler and may be used with the compiler or as an assembler. It is a full-featured macro assembler. User-defined macros, conditional assembly and a variety of assembler directives make the assembler a power code generation tool.
