Take MikroC of MikroElektronika.

https://www.mikroe.com/mikroc/pic/

You can use it freely if You make data code up to 2K, for coding above 2KB You should get licence.



Use this tutorials from MikroE web site:

https://www.mikroe.com/products/view/285/book-pic-microcontrollers-programming-in-c/

https://www.mikroe.com/products/view/476/pic-microcontrollers-programming-in-basic/


Also for learning and designing projects is good to have good development boards. You can search some cheap and small over Internet or You can consider to get some pro boards like MikroE EasyPIC v7 and EasyPIC PRO v7. Also see Microchips Explorer 16 dev board.

hi,
hope you will get enough knowledge soon. If you want to learn basics of microchip embedded system lot of eBook available. My guidelines is "Embedded System by MAZIDI" . please note that this book not freeware. but you can downloaded from shared network.serious search on Google is the option to get it.

which one is best???..

This question is more related to some woman which want to buy car is some car shop.


Word "Best" dont have weight if you dont give criterium for "best" competition.

- Technical support is free or must pay ?
- Compiler device and platforms support ?
- Easy migration of code from PIC to AVR, ARM,...
- Easy migration of code in PIC family (dsPIC, PIC32,...)
- Combining assembly code with C code ?
- Cost of product or its free ?
- Debugging support
- Existing Library support is free or must pay ?
- What is the price of product ?
- Compiled code size ?
- Technical documentation quality provided by manufacturer.
- Company behind product. You dont need some product without bright future and no further updates.
- Availability of existing codes and projects on Internet from which You can learn also.
- Availability of books and ebooks for compiler.
.
.
.

I just give some guidelines from many.

:wink:

I give You answer in post #8, but please this is my opinion, based on the knowledge what I have.

You can also try other, dont stick to one solution, take one primary solution give 80% of energy in that, rest 20% spent on others.

MikroC is very good compiler and that is my propose too. I more likely to use Atmel microcontrollers than PIC, and I know some compilers for Atmel, but MikroC is very good choice for PIC. That company who created and own MikroC compiler has a focus on PIC microcontrollers (that is my conclucision), and if I remeber well they are something like gold partner with Microchip.

pradeep_k_b if you like, you can become a member of group Beginners of Embedded system on this forum and start some topic there. Maybe we could learn something new together.
