'BASCOM-AVR© is the original Windows BASIC COMPILER for the AVR family. It is designed to run on XP/VISTA/WIN7 and WIN8'
This product description is updated in 2014. But we do not change it each time we update the software. In the on line help you can find a list of all statements and functions.
- 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, Single, Double and String variables.
- Large set of Trig Floating point functions.
- Date & Time calculation functions.
- 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, PC keyboad, matrix keyboad, RC5 reception, software UART, SPI , graphical LCD, send IR RC5,RC6 or Sony code.
- TCP/IP with W3100A/W5100/W5200/W5300 chips.
- Built in AVR-DOS functions like MKDIR, CHDIR, DIR, OPEN, CLOSE, etc. Just as they work in QB/VB !
- Local variables, user functions, library support.
- Integrated terminal emulator with download option..
- Integrated simulator for testing.
- Integrated ISP programmer (application note AVR910.ASM).
- Integrated STK200 programmer and STK300 programmer. Also supported is the low cost Sample Electronics programmer. Can be built in 10 minutes! Many other programmers supported via the Universal Interface.
- Many supported programmer like STK500, STK600, MKII, USBASP, JTAG , Arduino
- Editor with statement highlighting.
- Context sensitive help.
- DEMO version compiles 4KB of binary code. Well suited for the ATmega48.
- English an German Books available
- AT mouse simulator, AT keyboard simulator, I2C Slave available as add on.
- This product is developed in 1995 and is updated regularly.

And many other functions, statements and directives
To make 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).
- Program the chip with one of the integrated programmers.
(hardware must be purchased separately)
This is a screen shot of the editor. You can work in normal mode or project mode.
At the left you find the Code Explorer. The Code explorer can show unused data in a different colour.
When the Code Explorer is visible, the editor supports Proper Indent and Indent drawing.
Indent lines can be a great visual help.
A tool tip with info can be shown by pressing SHIFT :
Here it is clear that BDIL is a byte variable, dimensioned in the module CAN-Elektor.bas
It will show info for constants, aliases, variables and functions.
