Atmel helps accelerates time to market, offering an entire infrastructure to get your embedded design up and running.
Our new Atmel ICE debugger lets you watch your program run in everything from an 8-bit AVR to the latest ARM microcontrollers such as the SAM D21 or the SAM4E Cortex 4 based micro. Many Atmel demo boards have the debugger built in, like the SAM D20 Xplained Pro.
Better yet, there is a debug header on the board so you can use the board as a debugger on your PCB. All this hardware has great software support in our free Studio 6 integrated development platform (IDP). In addition, Atmel gives you a head start with hundreds of working applications in the Atmel Software Framework (ASF) and Atmel Gallery. Plus, you can have co-workers and friends help you with projects using the Atmel Spaces collaborative workspace.
Perhaps you want to start with an Arduino. Remember, Atmel is not just Arduino compatible, it is the chip used in the popular UNO and DUE. Don’t be fooled by companies claiming Arduino compatibility, only to mean an Arduino Shield expansion card will plug into their board. None of the Arduino libraries and code will work with those competitor’s boards, since they don’t use Atmel micro-instructions on an Atmel chip.
Be sure to attend EELive! in San Jose (March 31-April 3) and don’t forget to visit the Atmel Mobile trailer right on the show floor. The trailer will feature live presentations about the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math).
See you there!
