Atmel Studio is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for writing and debugging AVR/ARM microcontroller code on a Windows PC. Atmel acts as a project management tool, source file editor, assembler, simulator, and programming and on-chip debugging tool.


  • The ground-up building, testing, and verification of microcontroller devices
  • Debugging of code for AVR/ARM microcontroller devices
  • Front-end C/C++ programming and on-chip debugging
  • C/C++ and Assembly language code editor with Visual Assist
  • Compatible with Atmel ARM Cortex-M and Atmel AVR microcontrollers
  • Supports all Microchip AVR tools
  • Regular updates for latest AVR tools
  • Advanced debugging with cycle-correct simulations
  • Modular architecture for interaction with 3rd-party software
  • Customizable GUI plugins and modules
  • Works with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8

No matter how perfect you think your design is before a microcontroller design is ready for production, it has to be built, tested and troubleshot until it completely errors free. Atmel Studio is a developer's best friend when it comes to getting custom-designed microcontroller devices and its components ready for production.

Atmel is compatible with many Microsoft Visual Studio plugins, has a rich SDK to enable tight integration of customer-specific plugins, and allows prototype building on any AVR platform. Atmel’s code editor for C/C++ and Assembly language features a powerful Visual Assist extension to take the drudgery out of code troubleshooting and reworking. To top it all off, Atmel Studio has a cycle-correct simulator with advanced debug functionality, and if that isn’t enough to get the job done, you can debug on the actual devices using the Debugging Tools.

No software can guarantee you will not have any tough problems to solve before heading off to production, but Atmel Studio might save you a lot of hair-pulling, long nights looking for bugs and bad code.

Atmel allows microcontroller code debugging on actual microcontroller devices using intuitive debugging tools.

Atmel Studio appears to be a great product for programmers who love to work in C and C based languages. As some one who used to write in C++, I can say that this product would be important for anyone wanting a good way to debug a microcontroller. My only gripe is it appears there is no support for C-Sharp.
The Atmel Studio program is extensive in its array of free source code. It contains over 1500 project examples for users and can be characterized as an integrated developmental platform. As such, it is ideal for integration or any other applications associated with source codes, which again are free. This app is worth it to check out.
Atmel Studio is used to debug AVR SAM and micro-controlled applications. This is not new user friendly. It is for someone who knows about debugging and third parties.

Atmel Studio for Windows is an arts program for creating applications and drawing your own platforms. This is the kind of program you get if you are sophisticated with programming and want to do lots of programming online to help create a new code for people all around the world to enjoy the world and bring us together for the good of mankind. If not, its just a program that allows you to do a lot of coding, particularly C++.
