Debug chipKIT Sketches in MPLAB X IDE

Posted 2017-02-13 09:33:35 by Majenko


Say goodbye to the Serial Monitor debugging with Serial.println()! Microchip has released a chipKIT Platform Sketch Importer for MPLAB X IDE in their latest version, v3.10. This importer is a plug-in that allows for source debugging of chipKIT sketches directly within MPLAB X IDE. This plug-in is installable via the MPLAB X plug-in portal under the Tools menu. The only other requirement is a separate install of the latest beta release of UECIDE--an alternative to MPIDE--since the desired sketch must first be created in UECIDE and built in that environment at least once. Subsequent builds and full source-debugging are then supported within MPLAB X IDE.
