Atmel AVR Studio - Download and Install

In the previous article, we learn why AVR microcontrollers are so popular for designing embedded system projects. We have got the basic knowledge of ATmega16 Pin description and other required data through its datasheet. Now we can move forward to code our microcontroller. So In this article, we are going to install and setup the Atmel studio.
