    I'm new to the AVR chips but have used PIC chips IDE in which they have a
    STOPWATCH to test timing of the code.

    Does the AVR IDE have similar function or how do I test timing loops in the
    AVR IDE environment?

    Yes, AVR Studio 4 has both a "cycle counter" and a "stopwatch" in the
    processor tree of the workspace debugger window. The stopwatch value can
    be reset to zero by the user (the usual right-click popup menu).

    Thanks - missed that in the first pass :-(

    Well some loops and nops will sometimes do the trick.
    Just add up the cycle counts.
