The Advanced Software Framework (ASF) provides a rich set of proven drivers and code modules developed by experts to reduce design time. It simplifies the usage of microcontrollers by providing an abstraction to the hardware through drivers and high-value middlewares. ASF is a free and open-source code library designed to be used for evaluation, prototyping, design and production phases.
The Atmel Gallery app store provides development tools and embedded software for MCU-based application design. You can download and securely purchase both Atmel and third-party compilers, advanced debugging tools, real-time operating systems, communication systems and other extensions and plug-ins straight from the Atmel Studio 7 development platform and via gallery.atmel.com.
Microchip and Accelerated Designs Inc. have collaborated to provide Microchip customers with schematic symbols and PCB footprints for Microchip products. Both PCB footprints and schematic symbols are available for download in a vendor-neutral format which can then be exported to the leading EDA CAD/CAE design tools using the Ultra Librarian Reader.
Microchip offers code examples for your projects like controlling simple timers and UARTs, low power modes, LCD displays, motor-control algorithms and many more.
Microchip provides IBIS models for various devices. IBIS models are used to perform board level signal integrity (SI) simulations and timing analysis when the actual I/O circuit schematics are not available. Check out what we have to offer!
There are many software libraries from Microchip that will enhance your project. Find the newest versions here.
Microchip Gallery enables easy distribution of software, e.g., extensions, utilities, plugins, etc., to all Microchip customers. Use this portal to upload and manage your software for distribution. It is open to anyone who wants to distribute software that enhances the development ecosystem used for AVR, PIC8, PIC16, PIC32 and SAM development.
The Microchip Libraries for Applications (MLA) enhances inter-operability for applications that need to use more than one library. Once you download the Microchip Libraries for Applications you can select the projects that you need for your application. In addition to the source code, this software package includes: drivers, demos, documentation, and utilities.
MPLAB Mindi Analog Simulator reduces circuit design time and design risk by simulating analog circuits prior to hardware prototyping. The result is fast, accurate analog circuit simulations.
The QTouch Library is a royalty-free software library for developing touch applications on AVR® and Atmel SMART Arm®-based microcontrollers with Peripheral Touch Controller (PTC).
Developers can use it to easily integrate touch-sensing capability into their applications. The library can be used to develop single-chip solutions for many control applications or to reduce chip count in more complex applications.
