I'm not sure where to post this so, here it goes anyway.
It's the slow time of year at work and I'm getting to write a lot of test procedures. But those have been completed now, for the most part.
So, it's on to developing some test fixtures to speed up test time. In short, I'm thinking of ways to build a flexible test fixture, where I can simply dump an assembly specific test routine into the host controller board and start testing a given assembly. There will probably be a couple of dedicated host controllers to specific assemblies, as well.
Well, I don't want to carry my ImageCraft ICCAVR USB security key back and forth between home, work, and back home. In that light, I was looking at using WinAVR, as it seems to be a plug-in intended for use in AVR Studio.
So a couple questions, having never used WinAVR.
Other then working within the AVRStudio GUI, what might be any other advantages over my current C compiler, ImageCraft ICCAVR V7.14?
Is WinAVR GCC and GCC++, or is it some other flavor of C compiler. I know that GCC is a popular C compiler, but I haven't really looked into WinAVR, or even CodeVision, for that matter.
Having only ever used the ImageCraft ICCAVR C compiler, I have no idea as to WinAVR's underlying substance.
Any input and/or advice that you might offer is appreciated.
