Evolved IDE

Essential tools for efficient developer

Code, Run, Debug, Repeat

mikroC is the center of the MikroElektronika toolchain, allowing you to code, compile, program, run, and debug, all within the same environment by just connecting the right development board.
mikroLab contains everything a developer needs to explore the possibilities of any of the microcontroller architectures we offer: a development board (with integrated programmer and debugger), the compiler license, an assortment of accessories, and as a bonus, a free license for one of our GUI design tools (either Visual TFT or Visual GLCD).
mikroLab is perfect if you decided you want to test out a new platform next year – say, if you have vast experience with PIC but want to try STM32. Or simply if you had one of our previous generation boards, but weren't sure about the value of updating to the latest versions.
