What is the XC8 Compiler Pro Key License?




The XC8 compiler pro key license is a license that enables the advanced optimizations and other features of the XC8 compiler. The XC8 compiler has two modes of operation: free and pro. The free mode is the default mode that you get when you install the compiler without a license. The free mode offers basic optimization levels (O0 and O1) and limited support for some features, such as inline assembly, code packing, and data EEPROM access. The pro mode is the mode that you get when you install the compiler with a pro key license. The pro mode offers higher optimization levels (O2 and O3) and full support for all features, such as interrupt handling, code obfuscation, functional safety, and code coverage. The pro mode can significantly improve the performance, size, and quality of your code, especially for complex applications that require more memory and speed. The pro mode can also help you comply with industry standards and regulations, such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508, by providing functional safety features and code coverage tools.


How to Get the XC8 Compiler Pro Key License?




The XC8 compiler pro key license is a paid license that you can purchase from the Microchip website or from authorized distributors. The license is available in different options, such as workstation license, network server license, or site license, depending on your needs and preferences. The license is also available for different durations, such as one year, three years, or perpetual. To purchase the XC8 compiler pro key license, you need to visit the MPLAB XC C compiler web page on the Microchip website and select the option that suits you best. You will need to provide some information, such as your name, email address, company name, and host ID of your computer or server. You will also need to make a payment using a credit card or a purchase order. After purchasing the license, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to download your license file. You will need this file to activate your license on your computer or server.

To install the XC8 compiler pro key license, you need to follow these steps:



  • Download the latest version of the XC8 compiler from the Microchip website or use the MPLAB X IDE installer to install it.



  • Download your license file from the email confirmation link or from your mySoftware account on the Microchip website.



  • Copy your license file to the following location on your computer or server: C:\ProgramData\Microchip\MPLAB X\licenses



  • Open MPLAB X IDE and go to Tools > Licenses > Manage Licenses. This will open a dialog where you can see your installed licenses.



  • Select your XC8 compiler pro key license from the list and click Activate. This will activate your license and enable the pro mode features.



  • Restart MPLAB X IDE for the changes to take effect.




How to Use the XC8 Compiler Pro Key License?




To use the XC8 compiler pro key license, you need to follow these steps:



  • Create or open a project in MPLAB X IDE that uses the XC8 compiler as the toolchain.



  • Go to Project Properties > XC8 Global Options > Optimization. This will open a dialog where you can select the optimization level for your project.



  • Select O2 or O3 from the drop-down menu to enable the pro mode optimizations. You can also adjust other options, such as code packing, code obfuscation, or functional safety, according to your needs.



  • Click OK to save the changes and close the dialog.



  • Build your project and enjoy the benefits of the pro mode features.
