  • PICBASIC 2017.4.12.0 - PIC Support

    Hello, I have been using version 2017.4.12.0 PICBASIC PRO- Experimenter Edition and it appears to have limited PIC support. I have been using PIC16F690 and have moved to PIC16F886, I would like to try newer PIC's but these are not listed.
    Is there a method of addiing additional PIC support or do I need to use a different version of the compiler?
    I am only a hobyist and this is not for commercial use.
    Thank you in advance.

    OK, I see how it works, the student/experimenter editions have limited PIC support - the commercial versions have (I assume) greater support.

      If you want more than the limited listing, you will have to pay to upgrade. For the latest PICs, the PBP Gold will get you most everything offered in the 8-bit line-up (PIC10F, PIC12F, PIC16F, and PIC18F parts). The good news is once you pay for the upgrade, you own it. Unlike so many software vendors these days, there are no maintenance or subscription fees. Also, with few exceptions, software updates are free.
      We can crack this cotton PIC'n thang!

        Before investing a lot of money in a upgrade you may want to consider this...

          Tumbleweed makes a valid point. Instead of downloading the latest MPLABX, you'll have to download MPLABX 5.35 to get the assembler. It's always available for free from Microchip (http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/e...-installer.exe).

            Charles,
            Excuse me if this is a bit blunt but the questions that's on many of your users minds are if PBP will ever see any further updates or if the departure of MPASM is what will finally kill (or offer an excuse to finally kill) further development ofyour great product? I'd hate for that to happen :-(

              I don't know yet. If Microchip doesn't add devices to MPASMX, I can't add them to PBP. I don't see any possibility that PBP can be made to work with their 64-bit system. I just became aware of their change last week, so I'm still trying to find a solution.
