PICoPLC is a ladder logic editor, simulator and compiler for 8-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. It can generate native code for Propeller and Microchip PIC16 CPUs from a ladder diagram.
Best of both worlds: PICoPLC brigs the low prices of Microcontrollers and high integration of PLCs. Rapid development with industry proven ladder diagrams and extremely small PCB footprint for space and cost reduction.
PICoPLC has a unique feature of extending IO pins to the USB bus. PICoPLC uses USB for programming, monitoring and control functions. The PC software is free to use and distribute. No additional charges, you pay for the hardware only!
Special PICoPLC features enable easy PLC control from Visual basic, C, Java or even EXCEL! All USB drivers are shipped with your operating system, no need for installing additional drivers. As a true Plug-and-Play device, PICoPLC supports Windows, Linux, MacOsX and even selected MOBILE devices!
To develop applications with PICoPLC, complex programming languages like C or BASIC are not needed! You are creating your application in a graphical environment like you draw an electric circuit. High level components like Timers, contacts, relays, counters makes your life easy with PICoPLC.
