Qt and PIC18



  • Hello to everybody.
    I am working currently on a project an i have to compile some code for a PIC18 mcu. Is there any toolchain for PIC and QT?
    Has anyone used it before ?
    Thanks



  • HI,
    Can you explain more, what you mean by "toolchain for PIC and QT"



  • For example i write a project for PIC18. I want to compile it for that. I mean i want to create a .hex file which is suitable for PIC18 like Mplab but in Qt IDE



  • I believe that PIC microcontrollers do not have enough resources for running Qt applications. Microchip provides (free) IDEs and tools for building Graphical User Interface targeting their microcontrollers that will best suit your needs.

    @ cezmen I think the question is more: is it possible to use Qt Creator in place of the Microchip IDE



  • Yes exactly that was the real question a mentioned!

  • I see. But I'm really curious about why would anyone need that, since Qt framework is not supported on PIC 18 MCUs (low-end 8 bit microcontrollers with a maximum 4096 bytes of RAM for data and 128 Kbytes of flash for program). Qt Creator is excellent for designing Qt Widgets and QML Applications targeting high-end processors. Aside from that, it's just another IDE. I see no benefits on not using one of IDEs provided by Microchip in this case. Anyway, I wish good luck to anyone trying that. I would be gladly surprised seeing that this is possible and beneficial.
