With the popularity of Apple computers rising, it would be nice to have guides, links, apps that ease the transition of embedded programming (PIC,Atmel,etc) over to OSX.

I know I personally am having a hard time finding good stable schematic software, along with PIC C compilers that run on OSX.

It would be really great if we have there more apps for programming and designing on mac osx computers.

Macs are for hipster designers and not for real work.

Agreed.
What I do in the mean time is run VMware Fusion with a Win7 box in unity mode. Works... But, Mac native apps would always be better...

Oh well... Im using my Mac at work, doing some real r&d work. A colleague is doing the same. Im also using VMware Fusion for win only applications like vhdl simulations, schematic and layout etc. Works well. However, all my code is written on the Mac. I just got tired of a regular laptop with windows.. And my Mac looks better:-)

Some applications that run natively on Mac os x:
http://www.code-red-tech.com/products.php           (ARM ide)
www.slickedit.com (The Slickedit editor - my favourite for the last 10 years).
http://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/ (mathematics)

If anyone knows about more ides with support for more embedded platforms for the Mac, let us know:-)

EAGLE, MATLAB and MPLAB X run perfectly on a Mac. I'm still not regular user of MPLAB X, since I prefer the old MPLAB on XP when working with old 12F/16F chips in ASM, but once I move to DSP coding on the latest chips, I imagine being able to do my entire development work on Mac.

I think we'll see a lot more cross-plattform bloatware, ehm i mean software, as by using frameworks, porting code has become much easier.   How many really native Win32 applications you see these days?

LTspice IV (free download from Linear Technology website) is also available for Mac OSX version 10.7 and forward.

for purposes of schematic entry and logic simulation

Back when I was MAC only - I used something called logicworks from capilano - it's very reasonable price and was very stable and useable
(it's avail in the itunes store, but also for windows and pre OSX macs)

For layout it I used douglas cad and RUN, but don't know if that is available any more

Also very useable but did have a 8 layer limit


I don't have a current version to share since all my mac systems are too old and I have OSX on virtual macs only which are not speedy enough for real work

LOL - I remember those on a Mac.

I gave up the fight after realizing the Mac is an artist's/writer's machine and has few engineering tools for it.

If you still have those, go ahead and put them up for the nostalgia buffs.

You can run them on this emulator (Google searched,never used it): http://sourceforge.net/projects/os9exec/ in Linux, Windows, or OSX
