Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

• This isn't as obvious a question as it might seem. At the moment probably "no" but the website doesn't really make it all that clear. There is a downloadable list of supported devices, the AVR parts whose addition to it is currently the news splash are not on that list. It's not clear that there are any non-ex-Atmel ARM parts offered; for those Atmel studio seems to still be the official choice, or just use the same gcc complier yourself with your existing preference of configurable IDE. I'd expect they will eventually integrate them. If you want a definitive answer contact support. – Chris Stratton Aug 27 '18 at 15:00
• Maybe you want to ask that question on the Microchip forum. microchip.com/forums/f238.aspx – Michael Karas Aug 27 '18 at 15:02
• Thanks a lot. I will start a support ticket a microchip and tell you the answer. – Mike Aug 28 '18 at 5:26

MPLAB X IDE v5.05 has beta support for 16 SAM devices. These are the devices that are currently beta supported under MPLAB X IDE v5.05:

Please continue using Atmel Studio for SAM Devices, till MPLAB X doesn't fully support the ARM devices. More details about the Atmel Studio ecosystem cab be found here: http://www.microchip.com/mplab/avr-support
