Has anyone heard about a possible "SAM Studio", in the flavor of "AVR Studio"?

Started by Eric Engler April 21, 2007
Those of us who use AVR devices are well aware of the terrific support
for gcc that was added to the Atmel AVR Studio IDE over a year ago. It
has excellent integrated debugging and a strong professional feel.
It's free, but not open source.

Many people use Eclipse with gcc for SAM devices, but I've not been
happy with it. I'd love to see something like "AVR Studio" that
targets the SAM devices.

Recently I saw the phrase "SAM Studio" on a training advertisement,
but I couldn't find any details on it, and I couldn't attend that
particular training event.

Could this have just been a mistake, or is there really a "SAM Studio"
in the mix for the future? Maybe they meant to say the Arm/Keil IDE?

Don't know about a SAM studio, but AVR32 Studio is based on Eclipse. Maybe
this is a hint as to where Atmel are going.

Personally I have several issues with Eclipse.

Richard.
I attended the training event and they did hand out something they are
calling "SAM Studio". It is Eclipse with the YAGARTO toolchain. It
works with the SAM-ICE emulator (which is a Atmel only version of the
Segger JLink). I think the version I have is version 0.2 but I
haven't looked at it since the workshop. I am not sure what
enhancements they are adding. It seemed like it worked ok.

I attended the same workshop, I have it up and running. Version 0.2 is
current and it works well.

I haven't looked at it too much yet because I use Crossworks and I
like that a lot. That was a great workshop. For those who don't know
which workshop we are talking about, here is a link:
http://atmel.com/dyn/products/view_detail.asp?FileName=Atmel_Avnet_4_4.html&family_id`5

I thought it was very good. It was worth attending if just for the
tools they are providing for $149.00. I asked them if they have
considered a similar workshop focused on USB and they said it was
under discussion.

Is there a download link for this?

Eric
A good place to start is www.yagarto.de
Avnet's Atmel Eclipse system uses Nut/OS, it is all there.

Don't forget to find Jim Lynch's great tutorial.

Good luck,

I don't have the SAM Studio, but the items at
http://www.atmel.com/dyn/products/app_notes.asp?family_id`5#Getting%20Started
look like what is being described. You will also need the "GNU-Based
Software Development on AT91SAM Microcontrollers" document that is on
the same page.
