AVR MCUs now beta supported in MPLAB X IDE

By eeNews Europe

Further support for additional AVR MCUs will be provided in MPLAB versions. AVR support will continue to be added to Atmel Studio 7 and Atmel START for current and future AVR devices.

MPLAB X IDE version 5.05 provides a unified development experience that is both cross-platform and scalable with compatibility on Windows, MacOS and Linux operating systems. The tool chain now supports MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) code configuration tool, allowing developers to easily configure software components and device settings. MCC can also generate code for specific development boards, such as Microchip’s Curiosity ATMega4809 Nano (DM320115) development board and existing AVR Xplained development boards.

MPLAB X IDE 5.05 also has a larger choice of compilers, including AVR MCU GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) or the MPLAB XC8 C Compiler. Designers can also accelerate debugging and programming using MPLAB PICkit 4 programmer/debugger tool or the MPLAB Snap programmer/debugger tool.

The majority of development boards available to evaluate and programme AVR MCUs are supported by the MPLAB ecosystem and MCC. Xplained development boards which are compatible with START are now compatible with MPLAB X IDE. The Xplained platform includes an integrated programmer/debugger and requires no additional hardware to get started.
