On paper AS6 supports SAM3
In reality AS6 support for SAM3 and SAM-ICE is dead in the water !!
EDIT: until you edit the device xml file.
I received my SAM3X-EK and SAM-ICE yesterday
Good luck to any newbie trying to use it, documenation consists of a one page letter with a huge long lURL to an Atmel site, when you type in all 200 characters it takes you to the oridinary product page for SAM3X-EK, which has next to no information, certainly no drivers, same for SAM-ICE, one page letter loooong URL.
So you eventually find the GETTING STARTED PDF, it talks about getting this and that file from the SUPPLIED DVD, but there is no supplied DVD and the drivers you need are not even on the Atmel site they are on SEGGER website, good luck guessing all that.
Tried to compile and run a sample application in AS6
It builds fine but when it comes to load the code using SAM-ICE I get a STUPID ERROR that proves beyong any doubt whatsoever that no one at Atmel ever tests ANYTHING !!
15:51:57: [ERROR] Unexpected Chip Identifier 0x286e0a60 (expected 0x286e0a30)., ModuleName: TCF (TCF command: Device:startSession failed.)
According to SAM3X data sheet the Chip Identifier for 8H is 0x286e0a60 which is exactly what the chip is CORRECTLY reporting but the Atmel Engineer [the one who desn't test anything] who wrote the files for Studio 6 decided it should be 0x286e0a30 &*^$%
So I cant use Studio 6 AT ALL with SAM3X-EK and SAM-ICE
I contacted Atmel support to report this SERIOUS ISSUE, someone will answer your email within 3 days, hey customers don't matter to Atmel 3 days is fine.
Already we know the poor dears who pretend to be Atmel Engineers cannot stand any criticism so the poor extremely delicate frail dears shun this forum which is set up by Atmel to deal with issues which includes criticism for really poor work, how idiotic is that.
Then I look more closely at the SAM3X8H and the ERRATA makes my hair stand on end, flash is NOT relaible at all for use as NVM storage, WORKAROUND is insert 6 wait states.
AND TO TOP IT OFF the chip is an UES that means ENGINEERING SAMPLE so down the track LOTS OF PROBLEMS.
Atmel should not be allowed to sell ABSOLUTELY KNOWN TO BE FAULTY chips, it has to be misleading and deceptive conduct in the extreme and subject to hefty multi million dollar fines in places like Australia.
