Atmel Studio 7 is free of charge and is integrated with the Atmel Software Framework (ASF)—a large library of free source code with 1,600 project examples. ASF strengthens Atmel Studio by providing, in the same environment, access to ready-to-use code that minimizes much of the low-level design required for projects. Standard IDEs are suited for creating new software for an MCU project. In addition to this, the Atmel Studio 7 IDP also:
- Facilitates reuse of existing software and, by doing so, enables design differentiation.
- Supports the product development process with easy access to integrated tools and software extensions through Atmel Gallery.
- Reduces time to market by providing advanced features, an extensible software eco-system, and powerful debug integration.
One of the benefit for Arduino developer is 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.
