SDCC

Small Device C Compiler compiler for 8-bit microcontrollers

The Small Device C Compiler (SDCC) is free and open source software for 8-bit microcontrollers. While such 8-bit microcontrollers might seem like outdated technology (most of the popular chips sold today use 32 bit or 64 bit solutions), the fact that there are less transistors to fire up with every cycle means there are quite a few basic use cases where 8-bit systems might very well remain the most energy-efficient option despite . SDCC is competing head to head with various proprietary compilers - such as Keil, IAR, Comsic, Raisonance. The tasks in this project will significantly boosts the capabilities of SDCC and allow developers a more mature tool to design for e.g. eco-friendliness. The project will deliver various improvements in SDCC, in order to make it more complete and competitive in terms of features and workflow.
