Atmel AVR Studio 5 Provides Fully Integrated Development Platform for Embedded Microcontroller Designs
Atmel Corporation announced a new fully integrated platform of easy-to-use development tools for its fast-growing community of over 100,000 users of 8- and 32-bit AVR embedded microcontrollers. The new Atmel AVR Studio 5 is an enhanced version of the popular Atmel Integrated Development Environment with support for all 8- and 32-bit AVR MCUs, making developers significantly more effective, and enables seamless migration between Atmel's 8-bit and 32-bit AVR MCUs.
AVR Studio 5 makes editing and debugging source code easier by seamlessly bringing together an editor with assisted code writing, a wizard for quickly creating new projects, an AVR Software Framework source code library, a GNU C/C++ Compiler, a powerful simulator, and a front-end visualizer for all of Atmel's AVR programmers and in-circuit debuggers. AVR Studio 5 combines the best features of the current 8-bit AVR Studio 4 and 32-bit AVR32 Studio into one environment that covers all 8- and 32-bit AVR MCUs. It also gives the user easy access to online documentation including device datasheets, tools user guides, example project documentation, and kit shopping directly from the Atmel Online Store. Atmel's AVR Studio 5 further provides an integrated offering of third party plug-ins for embedded development tools.

Integrated in AVR Studio 5.0 is the AVR Software Framework, a source code library for 8-bit AVR XMEGA and 32-bit AVR UC3 MCUs with over 400 complete application examples and a full set of drivers for on-chip peripherals and external components, wired and wireless communication stacks, audio decoding, graphics rendering, and fixed and floating point math libraries. The code in this framework allows designers to accelerate the development of new applications by eliminating the need to write up to 50 percent of the low-level source code in a project.

Software engineers need complete, intuitive tools to jump-start a complex embedded microcontroller design, said Dag Arne Braend, AVR development tools director, Atmel Corporation. Atmel AVR Studio 5 simplifies this process by enabling a software engineer to dive into a new project quickly with its fully-sourced code examples. In addition, the new project wizards come complete with a software framework and debugger to make the tool complete, extremely intuitive and easy to use.

Atmel AVR Studio 5 can be described in three words: intuitive, easy and efficient, said Ingar Fredriksen, senior product marketing director of AVR products, Atmel Corporation. AVR Studio 5 and AVR Software Framework, combined with the Atmel on-chip debugger and development kits, are truly the complete development platforms that help designers bring their ideas quickly to market. These platforms are easy to use and tailored to meet the needs of our customers' AVR MCU designers.
