Atmel Studio 6: Bringing Convenience of Apps Store to Embedded Design

Atmel® Studio 6 is the integrated development platform (IDP) for developing and debugging Atmel ARM® Cortex-M and Atmel AVR® microcontroller- (MCU-) based applications. The Atmel Studio 6 IDP gives you a seamless and easy-to-use environment to write, build and debug your applications written in C/C++ or assembly code.

Atmel Studio 6 is free of charge and is integrated with the Atmel Software Framework (ASF)—a large library of free source code with 1,600 ARM and AVR project examples. ASF strengthens the IDP by providing, in the same environment, access to ready-to-use code that minimizes much of the low-level design required for projects. Use the IDP for our wide variety of AVR and ARM Cortex-M processor-based MCUs, including our broadened portfolio of Atmel SAM3 ARM Cortex-M3 and M4 Flash devices.

Atmel Gallery

You can now download and securely purchase both Atmel and third-party compilers, advanced debugging tools, real-time operating systems, communication systems and other extensions and plug-ins straight from the Atmel Studio 6 development platform and via The Atmel Gallery app store provides development tools and embedded software for MCU-based application design.

When you encounter a need for a tool in the midst of your development process, or are seeking some basic source code, you won’t have to leave your environment to search for your solution. From Atmel Gallery, you can also download a plug-in that will give you direct access to Atmel Spaces, our new collaborative workspace.

Atmel Spaces Collaborative Workspace

With embedded applications easily topping tens of thousands of lines of code—often written by designers dispersed around the globe—efficient collaboration is critical for a project’s success. Atmel Spaces provides a cloud-based workspace where you can securely share and track open-source, community-developed embedded design projects with your peers.

With access control, version control, bug and feature trackers, mailing lists and wikis, Atmel Spaces provides a secure and efficient place for sharing design tips, tricks and resources and for tracking progress of projects with your peers.

You can access Atmel Spaces at or directly from Atmel Studio with an extension available in Atmel Gallery.
