Key Benefits

  • Structured BASIC with labels.
  • Structured programming with IF-THEN-ELSE-END IF, DO-LOOP, WHILE-WEND, SELECT- CASE.
  • Fast machine code instead of interpreted code.
  • Variables and labels can be as long as 32 characters.
  • Bit, Byte, Integer, Word, Long, and String variables. (SINGLE in BETA)
  • Compiled programs work with all AVR microprocessors that have internal memory.
  • Statements are highly compatible with Microsoft’s VB/QB.
  • Special commands for LCD-displays , I2C chips and 1WIRE chips.
  • Integrated terminal emulator with download option..
  • Integrated simulator for testing.(at the moment not ready yet, will be added)
  • Integrated ISP programmer (application note AVR910.ASM).
  • Integrated STK200 programmer and STK300 programmer. Other programmers will be added on request.
  • Editor with statement highlighting.
  • Context sensitive help.
The following statements are supported (actually there are more look in the help file):

To create a program takes just a few steps :

  • Write the program in BASIC
  • Compile it to fast machine binary code
  • Test the result with the integrated simulator(with additional hardware you can simulate the hardware too).Will be added later. For now use AVR Studio
  • Program the chip with one of the integrated programmers.
    (hardware must be purchased separately)

The program can be written in a comfortable MDI color coded editor.
Besides the normal editing features, the editor supports Undo, Redo, Bookmarks and block indention.


SIMULATOR NOT READY YET! Pictures are from BASCOM-8051.

The simulator let you test your program before writing it to the uP.
You can watch variables, step through the program one line at the time or run to a specific line,
or you can alter variables.
To watch a variables value you can also point the mouse cursor over it.

A powerful feature is the hardware emulator, to emulate the LCD display, and the ports.
The LCD emulator also emulates custom build LCD characters!

 

When you are done with the simulator it is time to program the chip using one of the supported programmer drivers.



The program, documentation and samples are in English.
A printed manual can be purchased separately.(not available yet)
