Compiler Quick Start Guide
|Quick Start Guide|
Welcome to the MikroElektronika Compiler Quick Start Guide.
The goal of this page is to help you make your first project in the compiler and understand how the IDE operates.
Our examples will help you along the way. We will take you through all the steps, one by one, and show you how simple and easy it is to use any of our compilers.
We have seven different architectures (PIC, dsPIC, PIC32, ARM, AVR, 8051, and FT90x) on three programming languages: C, Basic and Pascal.
Quick start guide structure
The Quick Start Guide is composed of three main sections:
Compiler Help file
All our compilers come with a comprehensive Help file and many coding examples that can help you get started and get to know the compiler.
You can also easily access them by clicking on the Open Examples folder.
Free software upgrades
The compiler license offers free upgrades. The only time you'll pay is when you buy the compiler.
All you need to do is check if there is a new update. You can do this by clicking on the Help -> Check for Updates.
The compiler license is valid until the end of the product life.
We offer free support, for all our products. There is a live chat option if you want to communicate with our support team and a Helpdesk
where you can submit a ticket if you are having any trouble or need more information.
Human-machine interface technology is used in almost every industry in the world today, and more and more households.
It certainly makes the interaction with any machine easier. We have decided to make it easier for you to create graphic interfaces — Visual TFT is an application for developing graphical user interfaces for TFT displays.
The code generated by this software is compatible with all our compilers.
You can download and try our free demo version of the Visual TFT software on our web page.
The demo version of the software allows you to freely design your GUI with as many components as you want, but code generation is limited to a maximum of seven components.
Since our PIC (from v.7.0.0), dsPIC (from v. 7.0.0) and FT90x (from v.2.0.0) compilers are merged with the Visual TFT, there is no need to download Visual TFT separately.
You can easily start a project in your desired compiler and by pressing F12 to switch between the compiler mode and Visual TFT mode.
