Roadmap update – June progress report on ARM and PIC32 compilers
Posted by Lana Vulic on 05 June 2017 02:27 PM
We have prepared a June progress report on the ARM and PIC32 compilers. The week can begin with the newest information on your favorite compilers.
The release date for the PIC32 compilers is July 13, so we are right on track.
The list of the supported MCUs grows longer. The debug support for all these news microcontrollers is in the final phases. They will also be supported in mikroProg™ for PIC, dsPIC, and PIC32.
You can see the list of supported MCUs for the new release on the RoadMap page.
ARM compilers release
Everything is prepared! Tomorrow morning we are releasing the newest version of the ARM compilers (version 5.1.0).

AVR Compilers Roadmap update
Posted by Lana Vulic on 24 April 2017 01:47 PM
Ever since our software team moved into their new office they have been super productive and enthusiastic. Therefore, this roadmap update for the AVR compilers comes flying on the wings of interior design change.
AVR Compilers Roadmap highlights
The new version of the AVR compilers (v 7.00) is scheduled to be released on May 11.
The implementation of Visual TFT in the compiler IDE has started a while back and is now well under way. Soon the AVR compilers will have a single platform for coding and designing, just like PIC, dsPIC, and FT90x compilers.
Our software team has added support for STMPE610 controllers. They updated the Bootloader application so that it has the automatic hardware recognition feature. External reference to all ADC libraries has been added as well.
ARM Compilers update
For the ARM compilers, we have implemented FreeRTOS, because of the enhancement poll on our Forum. This new version of the compiler will be released on June 1.
In case you have any suggestions about our compilers, please post a comment here, or on the Forum. Perhaps one of your suggestions will find its way into the next compiler update.

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.
