What is PCW?
The PCW: C-Aware IDE is an optimized ANSI C compiler for Microchip PIC MCUs. The software contains a suite of tools for Microchip PIC compiler code optimization that has the advantage of designing without being an MCU architecture expert. It also lets the user manage the design process through device programming and debugging. The software has built-in features such as performance analysis and statistics, and code debugging in real time as Microchip PIC MCU devices run.
The PCW IDE compiler has built-in functions with libraries for SPI, ADC, I2C, Timers, PWM, and others. It also has external peripheral drivers that accelerate device and application development. Also included are example programs, optimized codes. It has a C profile tool that tracks time and usage information for use on functions, code blocks, and receive live data from running programs. Data streaming, route program I/O to a PC using an ICD, is also included. Additional features also include serial input/output monitoring data graph, project wizards, debugging watch item that tracks structures and array variables, a tree viewer that displays a program call tree, multiple compiler versions, as well as many others.
