Winavr or Atmel Studio 6

Started by philipman2001 May 14, 2012
As a Atmel beginner, which route should I go.
Should I go with Atmel Studio or go the gcc route with winavr?

Appreciate your opinions?

I thought atmel studio used the gcc compiler anyway (or atmels version of it).
 
Winavr is just a windows installable collection of the GCC toolset for atmel devices. Atmel studio 6 has a lot in it including support for the atmel cortex processors.
 
The Winavr installation has a decent ide  with Programmers notepad although you will have to do a little reading up on make files.
 
Must admit i prefer the lighter winavr as opposed to atmel studio, atmel studio is a big download.
 
Regards

When I started out with AVR CodeVision provided much needed help. I haven't used it for several years not. That is because I do almost all my AVR development in Linux Ubuntu.
