Step 2: Create MPLAB® v3 Project Using MPLAB X IDE
In the Categories pane of the New Project dialog, select Microchip Embedded.
In the Projects pane, select 32-bit MPLAB Harmony 3 Project, then click Next.
In the Framework Path edit box, browse to the folder containing the downloaded framework. If you have not done this or want to download it to a different folder, click the Launch Content Manager button, then click Next.
Note: For more information on the Harmony Content Manager, see the "Download MPLAB Harmony Framework" section of the "MPLAB® Harmony v3 Configurator Overview" page.
In the Project Settings window, apply the following settings:
- Location: Indicates the path to the root folder of the new project. All project files will be placed inside this folder. The project location can be any valid path, for example, C:\Users\<your_name>\HarmonyProjects\PIC32WFI32E.
- Folder: Indicates the name of the MPLAB X Project .X folder. Enter "pic32_wfi32e_lab1" to create a pic32_wfi32e_lab1.X folder.
Use a valid directory name for your operating system.
- Name: Keep the project’s logical name as "pic32_wfi32e_lab1". This is the name that will be shown from within the MPLAB X IDE.
Note: The Path box is read-only. It will update as you make changes to the other entries.
- Click Next to proceed to Configuration Settings.
Follow the steps below to set the project’s Configuration Settings.
- Name: Keep the configuration name as "default".
- Target Device: Select PIC32MZ1025W104132 as the target device.
Note: You can select the Device Family or enter a partial device name to filter the list in Target Device to make it easier to locate the desired device.
- After selecting the target device, click Finish to launch MHC.
Note: The New Project Wizard opens the MPLAB Harmony Configurator automatically for a 32-bit MPLAB Harmony 3 Project.
Open the Project Properties window and verify that the compiler is set to XC32 (v3.0 or above) and Tool is set to ICD4. Also, verify the package version numbers.
Note: This project has been verified to work with the following package versions:
CMSIS v5.7.0, PIC32MZ-W_DFP v1.3.177
You are free to try the latest packages. However, since we regularly update our tools, you may occasionally discover an issue while using the newer versions. If you suspect that to be the case, we recommend that you double-check and use the same versions that the project was tested with.
