Build Environments: Getting started with Microchip

Microchip provides a wide variety of evaluation kits for the different MCUs and MPUs - and some of them are equipped with a graphical display. For some of those evaluation boards that contains on-board graphics or that can be combined with a multi-media board, we provide a dedicated Build Environment.

Each of them contains a couple of UI projects and the necessary sources, libraries, scripts and makefiles to get the UI sample applications up and running on the target system.

Please note, that every Build Environments is prepared and tested exactly or for the referred evaluation kit. If you are using your own hardware with different memory layout, different peripherals or different display, you can use the Build Environments just as a template. Please feel free to adapt them according your needs.

Each Build Environment is described by a 'Getting Started' article that explains the ingredients and the recommended workflow.

The following table provides an overview of all available Microchip Build Environments and Getting Started articles:
