I for reasons I don't want to go into to much have to port a project originaly developed on NXP LPC1850 to AVR32UC3C0512. (stubborn h/w designer that like norwiegians)
After reading the datasheet I felt ok, it should be fairly easy to port, now after struggling with avr studio for 6 weeks I am about to give up, what a cluster f**k of a development platform.
I also had to get a new computer because clicking menues in the IDE could take several seconds for a response. After getting a quad core i7 with 12 GB ram and a SSD I can use the tool without any lag.
It used to be so easy to just hower over a struct or primitive variable to see its definition in a little popup. even with the active x plugging it can't do that, single stepping takes an eternity. The asf documentation and examples are non existant compared to CMSIS.
Is AVR studio 5.1 going to improve ? and when will it be available?
