Atmel® Studio 6 is the integrated development platform (IDP) for developing and debugging Atmel ARM® Cortex®-M processor-based and Atmel AVR® microcontroller (MCU) 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 supports all 8- and 32-bit AVR MCUs, the new SoC wireless family, and SAM3, SAM4 and SAM D20 MCUs. It also connects seamlessly to Atmel debuggers and development kits. Additionally, the IDP now includes two new features designed to further enhance your productivity: Atmel Gallery is an online apps store built in to Studio 6, allowing you to purchase both in-house and third-party development tools and embedded software. Atmel Spaces is a collaborative workspace where you can securely share embedded design and track progress of projects with your peers.
