The seventh version of PIC compilers is out in time for Christmas
Posted by Lana Vulic on 22 December 2016 02:23 PM
It’s almost Christmas and version 7.0.0 of the PIC compiler for mikroC, mikroBasic and mikroPascal are here as planned. Just in time to wrap it up and put it under your Christmas tree.
Additional 40 MCUs supported
This PIC compiler update supports additional 40 MCUs. Most new devices are from the enhanced mid-range PIC16F family. This brings the total number of supported MCUs to well over 600. To see the complete list, go to your compiler’s page (mikroC, mikroBasic or mikroPascal)
Forum poll requests granted
In preparation for this release we consulted our forum members. Two libraries have been improved based on their votes: I2C timeout has been implemented in all I2C libraries and (2) advanced ADC initialization has been implemented into all ADC libraries.
Integrated Visual TFT
PIC is the third compiler to get merged with Visual TFT. The FT90x had the privilege to be the first, and dsPIC followed shortly after. We plan to keep going until all MikroElektronika compilers are merged with Visual TFT.
The compiler automatically generates code for the design you have made in the Visual TFT. You can then modify the code in the compiler mode, and go back and forth from designing to coding until you are satisfied with the results.
To switch from compiler mode to design mode all you need to do is press F12 on your keyboard. It’s as easy as that.
We have added the library for STMPE610, added functions pointers in the I2C library and new functions for the Port Expander library. The Conversion library also got new functions.
Fixes and improvements
Here are some improvements we have made to the compiler:
And this is what we fixed:

Don’t forget about our special December offer: until the end of the month, if you get any PIC compiler with Visual TFT there’s a 20% discount in for you. Give yourself a present for Christmas.
The new release also marks the switch to our new licensing model. To learn more about Activation Code licenses, read the documentation page.
