Hi,
I'm a student in an Engineering School and right now we have to do a project using a microcontroller(pic) which has to have about 56 pins and 20 - 40 MHZ of clock, 3 Timers.But we chose one from the 18Fxx20 family  in microchip and it was either really small or didn't have a compiler.My partners and I would appreciate it if somebody could help us find what we need.
Thank you very much.

I'd look at TI and Atmel.  TI has the MSP430, Atmel has ARM and AVR.
They are all easy to work with, have GCC ported to them, and
inexpensive development boards (look at http://www.olimex.com ).

All of the PIC parts have compilers.  I assume you mean to say there's
no free compiler that you found.  Many of the compilers you pay for
have free versions that limit chip resources, but may do everything
you need to do.  My suggestion is http://www.bknd.com , though I
haven't tried out their 18 series compiler yet.

Good luck.

Hello,

You're going to have to be a little more clear as to WHAT you found
"small".

If the pics available in the 18F series all don't have enough ram, code
space or eeprom then I'd recommend the 30F series.

The 30F are 16bit microcontrollers with boat loads of code space and
ram.

As for compilers, both the 18F parts and the 30F parts have C compilers
that support ALL parts directly from Microchip, and both are available
in "school editions" that are full featured except for optimizations.
Search for C18 and C30 on the Microchip website.

Hope this helped. TTYL
