Ok... so I visited IAR's site.
It seems they already have & offer a C/C++ compiler for AVR32 (and also visualState - design tool): http://www.iar.com/index.php?sho...
Any other compiler(s) for this new AVR32 microcontroller? IAR tools are known to be very expensive... :?

Real men don't use backups, they post their stuff on a public ftp server and let the rest of the world make copies.

The only announced ones I've heard of are IAR's and GCC. GCC is used to support the Linux operating system on the AVR32. (It runs the full Linux kernel, thanks to the AVR32's MMU.)

Both compilers were developed with Atmel's cooperation while the chips were still officially in the "rumour" stage among the general public.

Sorry for oftopic, but it's very interesting for me: Is Atmel planing to develop AVR32 Studio or any other tool for simulating AVR32?

Supposedly they(?) are working on a GCC compiler for the VAR32.

why not try a GCC-AVR ?It is free,but not easy to use,I think.

Because the GCC port for 8-bit AVR does not support the new 32-bit core ;)

And from the link on the front page, about the STK1000 ( https://www.avrfreaks.net/index.p... )

Included in the Board Support Package is the Linux operating system and GCC compiler plus a selection of ported applications. A complete list of what the Board Support Package includes can be found under the BSP header here on AVRfreaks.net (coming soon).

You actually must have GCC ported to you platform to be able to compile the Linux kernel, and as some of you have seen, the development kit is booting Linux and playing video (also with sound on my desk;) )

So does Arild have a copy of the new firmware or are we downunders have to put up with inferior demos? :lol:

It is available today AFAIK, and will be released with the BSP.

Regarding hard to use compilers, the GCC compiler is not harder to use than other compilers (and linkers) although it does not come shrinkwrapped in an IDE (at current, at least). The industry's favourite IDE, Eclipse, integrates very well with (any) GCC (for any hardware architecture) and would be a perfect choice for the avr32-{linux-}gcc port.

Slightly off-topic: There is no reason within any industry now to neglect Eclipse [ http://www.eclipse.org/org/press... ] and I sincerely hope Atmel choose to benefit from using Eclipse in favour of a proprietary (windows-only and limited functionality) IDE.

Hi people

The STK1000 Board Support Package (BSP) is available from the Atmel AVR32 web page now: http://www.atmel.com/dyn/product...

It consists of development tools for writing C/C++ programs (GCC 4.0.2) for the AVR32, both standalone and using the Linux operating system. The BSP also contains a filesystem image with a Linux system complete with kernel (2.6.16), various utilities and programs that use the STK1000 peripherals such as the Ethernet interfaces, USARTs and the onboard LCD display. Build scripts which can be used to customize the development utilities and the filesystem image are included.

The development tools are available for both Windows and Linux (currently Fedora Core 4 and Ubuntu 5.10).

And Atmel now accept orders for the STK1000 kit but a few week lead time must be expected in the beginning I think. Suggested retail price is $499.
