First of all, I'd like to apologize asking ARM question in AVR forum but it seems like the only place with knowledge in Atmel studio...
I'm currently work with one of Atmel's old demo application using Atmel studio 7.0 with sam-avr, the demo application is for both AVR and ARM (SAM20/21) and I'm working with ATSAMD51J20.
I found the IDE not very comfortable for working, we mainly work with Eclipse and I'd like to work too with that environment. I've already asked couple of weeks ago in Eclipse Community Forums (Home » Language IDEs » C / C++ IDE (CDT) » Problems using tool-chain for ATMEL chips) but didn't got an answer.
1. Is there a plugin for the ATMEL projects (*.cproj,*.atsln ) that can convert the ATMEL projects to Eclipse format? I've found something called 'de.innot.avreclipse.p2repository-2.4.2.zip' but it's seems it's for AVR chips because the compiler/linker aren't the one in the AtmelStudio folder.
2. How to set correctly the ATMEL tool chain in Eclipse for working with ARM processor?
3. How can I select ATMEL tool chain manually in an imported project? Currently I've tried the GNU tool chain (with Cross GCC and cygwin using CDT builder) with no success. Somehow it seems the Eclips can't find the tool chain in the AtmelStudio folder, no meter what I tried.
4. Can a JLink can be use instead the sam-avr?
Thanks in advance,
