Arduino Template Express - Atmel Studio 6.1 Integration

I have just released Arduino Template Express for Atmel Studio 6.1. It allows Atmel Studio to create, compile and deploy Arduino sketches. It also provides ArduinoCore library support for a few Attiny micro controllers. A step by step installation is located at If you are into Arduinos, take this code for a spin and it will improve your productivity while giving you access to Arduino libraries. ATE has the following features :

Support for the following boards

  • Arduino Uno
  • Arduino Mega 2560
  • Arduino Leonardo
  • Arduino Duemilanove
  • Arduino Nano
  • Arduino Esplora
  • Arduino Micro
  • Arduino Mini
  • Arduino Tiny (24/44/85)
  • Arduino Tiny (24/45/85)
  • Arduino Tiny (2313/2413)
  • Arduino Tiny (87/167)

Wizard driven templates capable of creating libraries or sketches Include compiled and source code version of all Arduino libraries included in version 1.04 except GSM.

  • ArduinoCore
  • Esplora
  • Ethernet
  • Firmata
  • LiquidCrystal
  • SD
  • Servo
  • SoftwareSerial
  • SPI

One key deployment of sketches and libraries Uses AVRDUDE to deploy sketches via bootloader or external programmers such as AVR Dragon, MKII, etc. (default) Uses ATPROGRAM to deploy sketches via external programmers such as AVR Dragon, MKII, etc. Support deploying sketches as a file transfer to delegate the deployment to another machine or simulation system (experimental). Support compilation of core libraries at frequencies different than 16MHZ. Includes script to compile all distributed libraries from the command line. Support compilation of one sketch for multiple boards using a command line script (experimental) Support addition of new commercial or custom boards to the boards.xml registry Allows definition of favorite board to default wizard when creating a new sketch or library. Allows changing board graphic in wizard to brand your development environment.
