KTechlab IDE: Open source software for microcontroller simulation

Posted on Wednesday, January 25th, 2012 in software by DP

KTechlab is an open source microcontroller simulation and development application. It features circuit simulation, firmware development, a C compiler, and a flash programmer. So far it supports only old PIC16F84 uCs.

KTechLab is a an IDE for microcontrollers and electronics. It supports circuit simulation, program development for microcontrollers and simulating the programmed microcontroller together with its application circuit.

Via Electronics-Lab.

    As I see this project is stalled. No development made in the last 2 years.

      @tbutuza: There are some git repositories on sourceforge which show recent development activity, so maybe not completely stalled.

    Oh this does look very cool.
    Maybe they expected people to add in other mcu’s by themselves?

    It would be awesome to add MSP430s support :D

    I think that this is the direction that PIC development software should be heading. I mean, if this thing could use even the simplest SPICE models, you could have a very elaborate programming environment. I often wonder why this hasn’t been done a million times. Combine MPLAB with a PIC simulator = pure gold.

    In my opinion…
