Embedded Software Compatibility

Embedded engineering can be a serious challenge. Whilst some software can be compiled to run on almost any platform, embedded drivers and peripherals present significant challenges. HCC has been dealing with driver and peripheral software for 15 years and can remove the risk and complexity from any embedded project. HCC supports hundreds of microcontrollers, processors, development boards and toolchains, almost too many combinations to list.

All HCC software is developed using a strong process and a framework called Advanced Embedded Framework (AEF). Software developed according to these rules is delivered as full source code with all required tool, hardware, driver and RTOS integration provided.

Don’t See Your Chosen Processor?

Embedded manufacturers release hundreds of product variants each year and we try to keep our online information up to date but inevitably there will be gaps. If you don’t see a processor listed, why not drop us an email and ask, or request support through our online configurator.


HCC’s framework approach to software means that most of our software compiles cleanly, with no warnings or errors on most compilers. Among the compilers we support are the following

  • Eclipse/GCC
  • IAR Embedded Workbench
  • Keil ARM Compiler
  • Freescale CodeWarrior
  • Atmel AVR Studio
  • Green Hills Multi
  • Microchip MPLAB
  • Renesas HEW
  • TI Code Composer Studio
  • Mentor CodeSourcery
  • Atollic True Studio
