Yes Atmel Studio 6 is the integrated development platform (IDP) for developing and debugging Atmel ARM® Cortex™-M and Atmel AVR® microcontroller- (MCU-) based applications.
I think we can only execute Atmel's ARM based processor using this tool not like IAR / keil MDK-ARM..Etc which supports different suppliers ARM based processor.
i dont think so visual studio supports ARM based processor, any feedback on this?
i got ARM Compiler toolchain v4.1 Patch 5 for visual studio 2012.The compiler, armcc, enables you to compile your C and C++ code:
— ISO Standard C:1990 source
— ISO Standard C:1999 source
— ISO Standard C++:2003 source
— 32-bit ARM code
— 16/32-bit Thumb-2 code
— 16-bit Thumb code.
