6 Projects

Projects are at the core of developing applications in MPLAB® X IDE. Projects contain the application code and development-related information such as the device on which the embedded code will run, the compiler used, and the debug tool used. Projects provide a compact and portable structure for application development.

As of MPLAB X IDE v5.00, packs are an important part of providing device and related debug tool support between IDE releases. Projects can be created for new devices in an existing IDE if an updated pack is available.
