AVR-GCC, Binutils, AVR-LibC, & AVRDUDE in Single Package, for Windows or Linux #Arduino
Hat tip to Zak Kemble for providing this single-package download for Windows 32/64 and a bash script file for building from source for GCC, Binutils, and LibC.
This is for those of you who like all the latest shiny things; GCC 6.1.0 was released just a few days ago (at time of writing), along with Binutils 2.26, AVR-LibC 2.0.0 and AVRDUDE 6.3 which were released a few months ago.
The binaries are built from source on an Arch Linux virtual machine with MinGW, apart from AVRDUDE where the pre-built binary was obtained from the official download area. Both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows binaries are provided. There’s probably no benefit from using the 64 bit stuff, but all the cool kids are doing it so why not.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
