Atmel® Studio 6 is the integrated development environment (IDE) for developing and debugging embedded Atmel ARM® Cortex™-M processor-based applications in C/C++ and assembly code. The IDE makes editing and debugging source code easier by seamlessly bringing together an intelligent editor with assisted code writing, a wizard for quickly creating new projects, the Atmel Software Framework free source code library, a GNU C/C++ Compiler, a powerful simulator, and the front-end for all Atmel programmers and in-circuit debuggers.
Atmel Studio 6 Beta is free of charge and available for download at www.atmel.com/atmelstudio.
What’s New in Atmel Studio 6
Single Environment for Atmel AVR and ARM Cortex-M Processor-Based Microcontrollers
Designers using AVR microcontrollers (MCUs) are already familiar with our IDE, previously known as AVR Studio® 5. Now, our community of ARM Cortex-M design engineers can take advantage of the same easy-to-use, seamless and highly integrated development platform.
Integrated QTouch Composer
Fully integrated into Atmel Studio 6, Atmel QTouch Composer is the front-end software used to display and evaluate the data reported from your touch design, making it easy for you to inspect how well your touch implementation performs. With this integration, you can easily and seamlessly develop capacitive touch functionality into your application. You won’t need to toggle between different tools to edit the code in Atmel Studio 6 and fine-tune your touch design in QTouch Composer.
Atmel Software Framework
The Atmel Software Framework contains drivers for all peripherals, communication stacks, graphics, digital signal processing (DSP) and audio libraries, as well as 1,000 complete design examples. Using free source code from the Atmel Software Framework accelerates the development of new applications.
Debugging Made Easy
Atmel Studio 6 connects directly to Atmel debuggers and programmers. One of the biggest advantages of modern MCUs is their ability to send debug data to your PC, giving you a perfect view of what goes on inside. With a debugger connected, Atmel Studio 6 can present the status of all processors, memories, communication interfaces and analog interfaces in nicely formatted views, giving you access to critical system parameters. There simply is no faster way to identify bugs and optimize a design—in the lab or in the field.
