How to Download and Use AVRASM2 for AVR Assembly Projects
AVRASM2 is an assembler for the AVR microcontrollers from Microchip. It is compatible with Atmel's own assembler and can be used with Microchip Studio or MPLAB X IDE for 8-bit assembly-code projects and solutions. In this article, we will show you how to download and use AVRASM2 for your AVR assembly projects.
There are two ways to download AVRASM2: either as part of Microchip Studio or as a standalone installer.
If you want to use Microchip Studio for your AVR projects, you can download the latest version of Microchip Studio from this link. Microchip Studio includes AVRASM2 as well as other tools and extensions for developing and debugging AVR applications. You can also download older versions of Microchip Studio (formerly Atmel Studio) from this link.
If you only need AVRASM2 and not the whole Microchip Studio, you can download the standalone installer of AVRASM2 from this link. This will install only the assembler and its documentation on your computer. You can use any text editor or IDE of your choice to write your assembly code and then use AVRASM2 to compile it.
Once you have downloaded and installed AVRASM2, you can use it to assemble your AVR assembly code files. The basic syntax of using AVRASM2 is:
