Visual Micro Description
Visual Micro is Arduino programming plugin that provides application developers use Microsoft Visual Studio or Atmel Studio 6.2 as a full Arduino development environment.
With the help of this piece of software, application builders can develop Arduino projects and can compile them, making them ready for upload to any Arduino board.
The tool allows programmers to make sure that their code is fully compatible with the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment), and they can also enjoy full support for all Arduino versions in the same IDE.
The plugin has been designed with support for all library formats in Arduino, as well as for third party Arduino-compatible hardware. Moreover, developers can take advantage of all programming combinations when using it.
Visual Micro comes with the configuration of Arduino IDE. Moreover, being based on the wiring framework, the plugin offers full support for IDEs that are also based on it and for the compatible hardware.
The standard version of Visual Micro is free, but can be upgraded to a more advanced variant that also includes the Arduino software debugger. It allows developers to monitor running Arduino with a simple click on the code they want to keep track of.
The plugin offers support for silently adding (inject) special Arduino ‘Serial’ instructions when code is compiled, but it does that without modifying the original source code.
Visual Micro includes a compiler error drill down feature as well, along with a disassembly view. Moreover, it offers Arduino help, examples, a USB serial debugger, and various other features.
As mentioned above, the plugin works with both Visual Studio and Atmel Studio. Developers interested in building in an Arduino environment can choose one of the two depending on their target architecture.
Visual Studio offers support for a variety of Arduino compatible boards that feature processors from coming from multiple manufacturers while Atmel Studio supports only those board that include processors manufactured by Atmel.
Note: Once the 30 days trial is over, you can still use the free version of Visual Micro, with no USB debugger and debugger visualizations.
