To make a program takes just a few steps :
(hardware must be purchased separately)
The program can be written in a comfortable MDI colour coded editor.
Besides the normal editing features, the editor supports Undo, Redo, Bookmarks and block indention.
The simulator lets you test your program before writing it to the uP.
You can watch variables, step through the program one line at the time or run to a specific line, or you can alter variables.
To watch a variables value you can also point the mouse cursor over it.
A powerful feature is the hardware emulator, to emulate the LCD display, and the ports. The LCD emulator also emulates custom build LCD characters!
When you are done with the simulator it is time to program the chip using one of the supported programmer drivers.

The version of BASCOM supplied will be less than 6 months old but it does not matter as you can update to the very latest version free of charge using the Update Wizard utility supplied with the software.
