Hi,

The Atmel site has "AVR Studio 4". Is this the tool to develop for 8-bit Atmel uC's ? Is this also called "WinAVR" or is that something different? Does this include the GCC compiler, or is that something different?

Thanks,

Alan

Hi,

Thanks - So is WinAVR completely standalone from AVR Studio 4 ? Do people usually use these together, or just the WinAVR ?

I'm just looking to get started. I plan on ordering a STK500 and some AVR's to start messing with soon and thought I would download and install some of the development tools to see what I can figure out... If there are any webpage links covering this, please post them! :)

Thanks,

Alan

WinAVR can be used without Atmel's Studio. Rarely done because if you use free AVR Studio, then install and mate-up GCC (WinAVR), following Atmel's directions, you have GCC for AVRs with a decent IDE.

There's a number of tutorials about getting started with Studio+WinAVR in the Tutorial Forum here.
