KTechLab - Open Source IDE

KTechLab project. KTechLab is a an IDE for microcontrollers and electronics. It supports circuit simulation, program development for microcontrollers and simulating the programmed microcontroller together with its application circuit. Ktechlab was developed by David Saxton.

KTechLab - Open Source IDE

From Design Gopher - Electronic Product Development

Integrated Design Environment (IDE) for electronic and PIC microcontroller circuit design and simulation. Featuring an extensive circuit designer with autorouting and simulation of many common electronic components and logic elements, KTechLab is the idea tool for educational or hobbyist use. You can simulate analog circuits and logical circuits using KTechLab.

You can write programs using Assembly, C (SDCC), or Flow Code - program the microcontroller(PIC) using flowchart. Another option is Microbe a programming language like BASIC.

KTechLab supports a wide range of Open Source PIC programmers, enabling finalised PIC programs to be quickly and easily transfered to a real PIC microcontroller.
