Atmel Software Framework
Peripheral Drivers, Components and Services – With FreeRTOS Integration
Introduction Atmel Software Framework is a free and comprehensive package of drivers, components, services, utilities and example projects. Many of the example projects use FreeRTOS.
Each peripheral driver is cross referenced to applicable Atmel microcontrollers and development boards, allowing the ASF Wizard included in Atmel Studio to down select from the available drivers to only display the drivers relevant to the hardware in use. The step by step workflow example provides more detail, and demonstrates how the ASF and the ASF wizard fit into a fully integrated development process.
|Drivers||Low level register interface functions to access a peripheral or device specific feature.|
|Services||Modules that provide more application orientated software, such as USB classes, a FAT file system and graphics libraries.|
|Components||Drivers that access external hardware, such as DataFlash, NAND flash, graphics displays, text displays, touch sensors and wireless interfaces.|
|Boards||Provides the mapping of digital and analog IO pins used by Atmel’s development kits.|
