Add own atmel controllers

Dear all.

I am using arduino UNo for several years.I have created own Arduino Uno prototype successfully working.

Now i am trying to build my own board with arduino IDE. I wanted to keep arduino as IDE. but i wanted to use different controller than atmega328. still cheaper than it.

My question here is.

  1. How could i add my own controller to IDE.
  2. What are point need to be considered , so that the library should work on controller.
  3. Is it possible to add controller or not.
    4)Which are the lower version of controller i can add.

The AtMega32U4 is already supported in the guise of Leonardo.

The ATXMEGA64A1U is more problematic/impossible. The work needed to write compatible core and library files (assuming it would be possible) would far exceed the work needed in learning to use Atmel Studio as the IDE.

Now i am trying to build my own board with arduino IDE. I wanted to keep arduino as IDE. but i wanted to use different controller than atmega328. still cheaper than it.

How cheaper do you want to go?

Newark/Farnell have had some really low pricing on the 328's lately.
