Flowcode - Getting Started Guide

If you are new to Flowcode then working your way through our getting started guides will be a great introduction to Flowcode.

In the Flowcode Embedded getting started guide we run through the Flowcode Integrated Development Environment and three separate examples. You will need some hardware to do this and we recommend a Microchip Xpress board or one of Matrix’s BL0011 PIC programmer boards with BL0114 Combo board.

  • Matrix BL0011 PIC programmer and BL0114 combo board.
  • Arduino Uno and Matrix BL0114 combo board.
  • Microchip Xpress board
