Coding for Amtel’s SAMD in MPLAB X

Being experienced in the PIC range of microcontrollers, using MPLAB’s IDE is a comfortable environment to work in. However, until recently to develop for the Atmel ARM-Cortex chips meant needing to work in a second, less familiar IDE – Atmel Studio 7. While there is nothing wrong with this IDE, knowing one really well is better than only partly knowing two.
The following 2-minute video will guide you on where to find the toolchain and how to activate it as a compiler in the MPLAB IDE.
