AVR® microcontrollers now beta supported in MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment
Microchip announces the release of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE) version 5.05 which beta supports the majority of AVR microcontrollers (MCUs). This release will allow designers who traditionally used PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) and developed with the MPLAB ecosystem to easily evaluate and incorporate AVR MCUs into their applications. Support for additional AVR MCUs and enhancements will be added in future MPLAB versions. AVR support will continue to be added to Atmel Studio 7 and Atmel START for current and future AVR devices.
