IDE recommendations

Post by jbeebo » Mon Apr 08, 2013 11:28 pm

For lack of a better place to put this question...moderators if it needs to move please feel free.

I'm preparing to jump back into embedded software coding after a VERY long hiatus. Last time I did this, I had to shine light on my micro to erase all the firmware sins I had just committed in assembly language. I had a job doing system level algorithm development for automotive ABS for a few years, but a SW engineer coded my algorithms in assembly. At this point, I may as well be a noob.

I'm looking for recommendations of integrated development environment (IDE) for 2 applications: Arduino or it's clones (target ATmega328 micro), and TH9X w/ stock board & ATmega64 micro. Other pertinent info: at this point I'm not interested in Web development or phone apps or Windows applications etc - just embedded firmware. For use in Win7HP64bit.

I'm open to any suggestions/recommendations. So far I've found the following seem reasonable options. What do you use? Can one IDE handle both (easily)?
Arduino: the Arduino IDE seems popular, how about AVRstudio?
ATmega64: Eclipse IDE or NetBeans seem popular choices.

TIA!

many thanks Bertrand. Have you experienced random crashing of Eclipse as noted here?

I use Code::Blocks http://www.codeblocks.org/. Works nice. AVR support is included. You can get an Arduino plugin..
