New Dev Kit for Creating and Sharing Embedded Design Extensions

It’s the life of an embedded design engineer: design is becoming increasingly complex, while resources and budgets are as tight as ever. What’s more, design teams are often distributed across different locations, and the pressure to get to market remains constant. Good, easy-to-use software and tools can help, especially if they foster collaboration.

Do you create software, tools and other design resources that help engineers meet their challenges? Read this application note to learn about a new developer’s kit for creating and uploading extensions to the new Atmel Gallery online apps store, a part of the free Atmel Studio 6 integrated development platform for AVR and ARM processor-based microcontrollers. The Atmel Studio Extension Developer’s Kit (XDK) gives you resources to easily develop extensions that integrate with Atmel Studio and are available to design engineers on Atmel Gallery.

Embedded Tools Apps Store Inside IDE

Are you under increasing pressure to develop products with fewer engineering resources and shorter deadlines? The folks at Atmel just announced the Atmel Gallery integrated apps store as part of the newest version of the Atmel Studio 6 integrated development platform. With Atmel Gallery, you can access tools, such as compilers, peripheral configuration, code editing and embedded software, right from the Studio 6 environment. These tools come from Atmel and third parties. Also, Studio 6 now includes Atmel Spaces, a workspace for development of open-source, collaboratively developed projects. Studio 6 is one example of how the embedded development platform continues to evolve to address some pressing challenges that embedded design engineers are facing today.

Here’s an interesting article from EE Times about how development environments are changing.
