Great Cow BASIC is an open-source BASIC compiler for 8 bit Microchip PIC and Atmel AVR microcontrollers. Also included in the project is Great Cow Graphical BASIC, an icon based editor for GCBASIC programs.

The latest release is September 2017. We are even closer to v1.00 release!!

Please see the download section for your options. We have a Graphical IDE and textual IDE, we have just the compiler and we have a minimal install - it is your choice.

User Reviews

  • Outstanding BASIC compiler for 8bit PICs and AVRs! This compiler is constantly being improved by very proactive developers. You can really take full advantage of the micro's capabilities and there is also an easy to use PPS tool to configure the pins on the newer PICs. This allows you to reassign pins which comes in handy while developing a PCB for your project. GCB is one of my favorite tools for programming, it really has come a long way and creates incredibly efficient asm. Try it... you'll love it!
