Target Devices Supported By Boostc
Posted 14 February 2015 - 10:26 PM
It has been more than a year ago, since new targets were added.
To stay competitive to the XC compilers it would be really nice to take advantage of the many new PIC16F1 chips.
Like the PIC16F1789.
I do not expect to have all the library’s to work with this new devices, I can write my own functions.
But it would be a good thing to have a sort of upgrade / expansion pack for new target support,
so we can get the include files for those new targets.

I see there is a header file for PIC18F45K50 (although somewhat incomplete) and a .TDF file as well. But MPLABX won't allow me to use the Sourceboost toolsuite for this device. Is there a list that MPLABX scans to see what devices are supported by SourceBoost toolsuite? Can I manually add this device to the list? If not, how long before you will formally support it?

I am planning a project for a customer targetting PIC 18F67K40.
This CPU doesn't appear to be supported in the current release (7.30). Can you please provide an update to allow me to use this part?
In general, how is BoostC tracking the appearance of new processors? Is anybody producing new support files for them? Either within the Sourceboost company or the community? Is there some other community support site that I should be looking at?
(I have in the past edited the _PIC18Fxxx.TDF, map.txt and other include files, to add a CPU, but its a tricky process - is there a guide published for "how to" add a CPU to the list? Or could you write one? Or should I write one based on what i have done in the past for you to edit?)
Is there a mechanism for users to contribute "mods" they have made for new CPUs, so they can be sent back into the community?
Still using your product after many years (back to early 6.xx) - many thanks for a great little compiler & IDE. Just wish you would do a PIC32MX one...(!)

You can download support files for PIC18F6xK40 from:
7.40 also includes instructions how to add support for new targets. Look into the readme.txt files inside include and config directories and how_to_add_new_target.txt file in the root of SourceBoost installation.
