  • Compliant with the majority of C++98 and C++2003 ANSI standards
  • Includes Dinkumware standard C, C++, and template libraries
  • Can be used with all C++ or mixed C/C++ projects in MPLAB® XC32
  • All Microchip C language extensions are available for use
  • Command Line compile supported
  • Windows, Linux, and Apple OS X workstations

Dinkumware is a software company that provides the Standard C and Standard C++ libraries for microcontroller compilers. They usually set the standards.

Microchip MPLAB XC32 C/C++ Compiler Features
The MPLAB XC32 C/C++ Compiler supports many command-line options and language extensions that allow full access to the 32-bit PIC32 hardware capabilities. The MPLAB XC32 C/C++ Compiler can be run in Microsoft Windows (32 and 64-bit), Linux and Apple OS X.

The compiler supports three operating modes: Free, Standard and PRO. Free mode uses standard optimizations and is available for unlicensed customers and supports all PIC32 devices and available memory. The Standard and PRO operating modes are licensed modes and support more sophisticated levels of optimization.

For C, this compiler requires MPLAB IDE v8.xx or higher, and the MPLAB X IDE. For C++, MPLAB X IDE v1.40 or higher is required.

"With the Free MPLAB XC32++, Microchip is offering a completely free C/C++ compiler solution with unlimited code generation," quipped Derek Carlson, Microchip's VP of Development Tools.  "Our optimizing C++ compiler includes the industry-recognized Dinkumware libraries.  This combination is ideal for a broad range of applications, from the industrial to the academic environments."

Pricing for Standard and PRO XC32++
"The Microchip MPLAB XC32++ PRO Workstation License ($1,445, part # SW006023-3) and MPLAB XC32++ PRO Network Server License ($1,845, part # SW006023-3N) can be purchased. Existing licensees of Microchip's MPLAB XC32 compilers can add the XC32++ option at $595 or $695, for a workstation or network-server license, respectively."

About Microchip Technology
