Chapter 5. PIC18 Development Tools

The development of a microcontroller-based system is a complex process. Development tools are hardware and software tools designed to help programmers develop and test systems in a relatively short time. There are many such tools, and a discussion of all of them is beyond the scope of this book. This chapter offers a brief review of the most common tools.

The tools for developing software and hardware for microcontroller-based systems include editors, assemblers, compilers, debuggers, simulators, emulators, and device programmers. A typical development cycle starts with writing the application program using a text editor. The program is then translated into an executable code with the help of an assembler or compiler. ...
