The Example Project creation wizard uses the Atmel Software Framework (ASF) and generates generic application projects for Atmel flash MCUs: megaAVR, AVR XMEGA, AVR UC3 and SAM devices.

Cross-platform examples in ASF will take advantage of power-saving features and provide a small flash and RAM footprints.

Each example is intended to run on one or several boards, provided by Atmel. The different examples contain, when applicable, a board-specific configuration, conf_board.h, to port the application between several boards.
