ProtonBASIC PIC® BASIC Development

The Protonbasic Compilers have been around for quite a long time now, and have been used by both enthusiasts and professionals. Both compilers produce extremely efficient assembler code, meaning complex projects can be performed on small, inexpensive, devices, as well as the larger devices. The compilers are very stable and offer a simple, yet efficient way to write code that you never believed you could write before.

The compilers are extremely easy to use and have powerful features, such as Strings, 32-bit and 64-bit Floating point variables, signed and unsigned integer variables, from a single bit, to 32-bits. Built in commands to do simple things like flash an LED, to more complex SPI, or I2C, or RS232 interfacing, Displaying on both graphic and alphanumeric LCDs, etc... The list goes on..... It also produces code that is extremely fast, making use of even the smallest and least expensive of the PIC microcontrollers.

The compilers support popular devices that are absolutely free! to use and have no limitations, as well as 99% of all PIC, PIC24, and dsPIC microcontrollers for a small fee to help its support and improvements. Also, remember, Proton24 is free with Proton, so it's a single installation for a huge catalogue of devices.

It's simple:

1. Write your BASIC code in the Proton IDE
2. Compile your code with the click of a button
3. Then test your code with the Virtual Simulator, or upload the code to your PIC® microcontrollers using the IDE's programmer integration.

Amicus18 is a multifunction development system inspired by the popular Arduino board, however, the Amicus18 board uses a Microchip PIC® microcontroller instead of an Atmel AVRtm type.


The Amicus18 Hardware is an open design, the schematics and design data are available for download FREE of charge. Proton Amicus18 Software is FREE to download and is NOT LIMITED in functionality.

What does the name Amicus mean ?
The name Amicus derives from the Latin word Amici, meaning friend. An Amicus is a person who speaks or performs on your behalf. The Amicus18 board will become your best friend, allowing a freedom to perform tasks that you never dreamed possible.
