HI-TECH C compiler for Z80/Z180 Architecture HI-TECH C for Z80/Z180

HI-TECH C for Z80/Z180 offers a complete ANSI C embedded compiler package with a full development system for language C and assembler. HI-TECH C supports the 64K memory model for the base Z80, plus the expanded memory on the Z180 and 64180, or even user-defined banked memory on any other Z80 device, allowing a megabyte of program memory. Interrupt functions can be defined entirely in C, including mode 2 vectors, and I/O ports are mapped as C variables with the port qualifier.

The classic Z80 microprocessor is alive and well, embedded in numerous microcontrollers from several manufacturers. HI-TECH C for Z80/Z180 is a mature, reliable tool backed by 18 years of continuous development.

Compiler Features:

  • ANSI C, supporting all standard data types
  • Unlimited number of source files
  • Multiple optimization levels
  • Comprehensive library with source code
  • Floating point support (32-bit)
  • Mixed C and assembler programming
  • Listings showing generated assembler
  • Optimizing assembler
  • Full linker, with overlaying of vocal variables to minimize RAM usage
  • Remote source-level debugger for low-cost in-target debugging included at no extra cost

Embedded Development Environment

HI-TECH C for Z80/Z180 an be run entirely from the HI-TECH Professional Development environment. This environment allows you to manage all of your Z80 projects. You can compile, assemble and link your embedded application with a single step.

Optionally, the compiler may be run directly from the command line, allowing you to compile, assemble and link using one command. Processors Supported: HI-TECH C compiler supports all the Z80/Z180 microcontroller families.
