Small Device C Compiler
|Developer(s)||Sandeep Dutta and others|
|Stable release||3.4.0 / April 11, 2014|
|Operating system||Linux, Windows, Mac|
The Small Device C Compiler (SDCC) is a free-software, partially retargetable C compiler for microcontrollers. It is distributed under the GNU General Public License. The package also contains a linker, assembler, simulator and debugger. As of March 2007, SDCC is the only open-source C compiler for Intel 8051-compatible microcontrollers. In 2011 the compiler was downloaded on average more than 200 times per day.
Supported target architectures
- Intel 8051 and its derivatives.
- Zilog Z80 and binary compatible derivatives such as the eZ80.
- Zilog Z180.
- Rabbit 2000 and the binary compatible derivative Rabbit 3000.
- Rabbit 3000A and binary compatible derivatives such as the Rabbit 4000.
- Sharp LR35902 (the CPU used in the Game Boy).
