Get the Software

To use code coverage, you will need an MPLAB® XC C compiler that supports code coverage and an MPLAB X IDE version that supports code coverage display. For full code coverage features, you will need the MPLAB Code Coverage add-on license.

Acquiring the Compilers

The MPLAB Code Coverage add-on license may be used with MPLAB XC C compilers that support code coverage, beginning with the following versions:

  • MPLAB XC8 v2.10
  • MPLAB XC16 v1.40
  • MPLAB XC32 v2.30

MPLAB XC C compilers may be downloaded for free at "MPLAB Compilers".

Acquiring MPLAB X IDE

MPLAB X IDE support for viewing code coverage output begins with version 5.25.

The IDE may be downloaded for free at "MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE)".

Acquiring MPLAB Code Coverage

An MPLAB Code Coverage add-on license may be purchased and activated like other compiler licenses. See “Installing and Licensing MPLAB® XC C Compilers” (DS50002059) for details. This license is for Workstations only (not Networks.) This license may be used with FREE or PRO compilers.
