Complier Offers Faster Interrupt Handling
Mon, 09/08/2008 - 6:46am
HI-TECH Software’s ANSI C "omniscient" compiler for Microchip’s PIC32 family of microcontrollers can boost real-time performance by 25% or more, and can provide nearly double the density. It increases the speed of interrupt handling by saving only registers that are necessary and restores them for each routine with an omniscient code generator. The HI-TECH C PRO compiler collects comprehensive data on every register, stack, pointer, object, and variable declaration across the entire program. The compiler optimizes memory based on the frequency of use of each variable and uses optimizations to preserve the relationships between the object code and the original C-code. The component has the ability to do full project management, simulation and editing due to its Eclipse-based IDE HI-TIDETM 3, which connects to the HI-TECH C JTAG Debug interface.
