HI-TECH C ANSI C compilers are enabled with Omniscient Code Generation™ (OCG), a whole-program compilation technology, to facilitate more intelligent, state-of-the-art code generation and enhance product usability. OCG extracts information from multiple source files simultaneously, allowing more intelligent state-of-the-art code generation that can deliver up to double the code density, better RAM utilization and faster interrupts than other compilers. HI-TECH C compilers integrate into MPLAB IDE and are fully compatible with all Microchip debuggers and emulators. These compilers can also run on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
