dsPICC is more than a C compiler - it is a complete development system for C and assembler.
Hi-tech Software's range of C language embedded software development systems offer real benefits over traditional assembly language programming. By using our ANSI/ISO standard compilers not only can development of complex embedded systems be completed in a fraction of the time, but reliability is improved, and maintenance is easy. On top of this you get access to facilities like floating point arithmetic that are just not available in assembler or subset C compilers, allowing you to add features to your product that previously were considered "too hard".
