Atmel Studio is the integrated development platform from Atmel®. It provides a modern and powerful environment for doing AVR® and ARM development.
Get started by exploring the included example projects. Run your solution on a starter or evaluation kit. Program and debug your project with the included simulator, or use one of the powerful on-chip debugging and programming tools from Atmel. Get productive with the various navigate, refactor and intellisense features in the included editor.
With strong extension possibilities and online gallery, it is possible for both designers and 3rd party to provide plug-ins and customize the environment for best use and productivity.
Atmel Studio carries and integrates the GCC toolchain for both AVR and ARM, Atmel Software Framework, AVR Assembler and Simulator. All newest Atmel tools are supported including Power Debugger, Atmel-ICE, Embedded Debugger, AVR ONE!, JTAGICE mkII, JTAGICE3, STK500, STK600, QT600, AVRISP mkII, AVR Dragon™, and SAM-ICE™. You can also use usbASP, USB TinyISP, and other AVR programmer/downloader tool.
Atmel® Studio 7 has been updated to use the 2015 version of the Visual Studio Shell, enhancing not only the look and feel of the integrated development environment (IDE) but also the performance when working with large projects. An improved Help system enables better integration of Atmel documentation in the online as well as the offline help systems. The start page has been revamped to always contain relevant and up-to-date information on the devices you are using to create designs. An updated Visual Assist plug-in included free in Atmel Studio also brings several improvements and productivity enhancements to the editor.
Atmel Studio 7 features seamless one-click import of projects created in the Arduino development environment. Your sketch, including any libraries it references, will be imported into Studio 7 as a C++ project. Once imported, you can leverage the full capabilities of Studio 7 to fine-tune and debug your design. Atmel Studio 7 fully supports the powerful embedded debugger on the Arduino Zero board. For other Arduino boards, shield-adapters that expose debug connectors are available, or switch to one of the many available Xplained-Mini/PRO boards to fully leverage the Atmel HW eco-system. Regardless of what you choose, you will surely make something amazing.
The Help system in Atmel Studio 7 has been extended to support on-line as well as off-line access, meaning you will always get the latest documentation when you are connected—and that will stays with you when you are mobile. Device-aware context sensitivity and an IO-view have been added to the editor, allowing you to look up register-specific information from the datasheet of the part you are using without leaving the editor. The AVR Libc documentation further enhances the context sensitive Help system, allowing you to look up function definitions easier than ever.
Additionally, Atmel Studio includes Atmel Gallery, an online apps store that allows you to extend your development environment with plug-ins developed by Atmel as well as by third-party tool and embedded software vendors. Atmel Studio 7 can also able seamlessly import your Arduino sketches as C++ projects, providing a simple transition path from Makerspace to Marketplace.
