AVR/SAM Programmers/Debuggers

Atmel-ICE

Part Number: ATATMEL-ICE

Atmel-ICE is a powerful development tool for debugging and programming ARM® Cortex®-M based SAM and AVR microcontrollers with on-chip debug capability.

Atmel-ICE supports:

  • Programming and on-chip debugging of all AVR 32-bit MCUs on both JTAG and aWire interfaces
  • Programming and on-chip debugging of all AVR XMEGA family devices on both JTAG and PDI 2-wire interfaces
  • JTAG and SPI programming and debugging of all AVR 8-bit MCUs with OCD support on either JTAG or debugWIRE interfaces
  • Programming and debugging of all SAM ARM Cortex-M based MCUs on both SWD and JTAG interfaces
  • Programming of all tinyAVR 8-bit MCUs with support for the TPI interface

For more information, please visit the Online User Guide.

Atmel-ICE kit contents:

AVR Dragon

Part Number: ATAVRDRAGON

Mature Product

The AVR Dragon sets a new standard for low cost development tools for 8-bit and 32-bit AVR devices with On Chip Debug (OCD) capability. It can perform a symbolic debug on all devices with OCD with SPI, JTAG, PDI (selected devices), high voltage serial programming, parallel programming, and aWire modes, and supports debugging using SPI, JTAG, PDI interfaces.

A development area lets designers build their own circuitry or add sockets for the desired device footprint. The debugger also supports NanoTrace, depending on the OCD module on the AVR device, using the target device's memory.

Note: AVR XMEGA PDI mode on AVR Dragon does NOT work for the following XMEGA devices: A3/D3 - revisions B, C and E or A1 (up to revision K).

AVR ONE!

Part Number: ATAVRONEKIT

Mature Product

A professional development tool for 8-bit and 32-bit AVR devices with On-Chip Debug capability. It is used for source level symbolic debugging, program trace and device programming.

It supports SPI, JTAG, PDI, and aWire programming modes and debugging using debugWIRE, JTAG, PDI, and aWire interfaces. AVR ONE! is driven by a powerful FPGA which provides high-speed data transfer between the host PC and the target AVR device, facilitating rapid program download and a most responsive debugging experience.

Power Debugger is a powerful development tool for debugging and programming AVR microcontrollers using UPDI, JTAG, PDI, debugWIRE, aWire, TPI or SPI target interfaces and ARM® Cortex®-M based SAM microcontrollers using JTAG or SWD target interfaces.

In addition the Power Debugger has two independent current sensing channels for measuring and optimizing the power consumption of a design.

Power Debugger also includes a CDC virtual COM port interface as well as Data Gateway Interface channels for streaming application data to the host computer from a SPI, USART, TWI or GPIO source.

The Power Debugger is a CMSIS-DAP compatible debugger which works with Studio 7.0 or later, or other frontend software capable of connecting to a generic CMSIS-DAP unit. The Power Debugger streams power measurements and application debug data to Data Vizualiser for real-time analysis.

Power Debugger kit contents:

  • Main unit with plastic back-plate
  • 2xUSB cable
  • 10-lead squid cable
  • Flat cable (10-pin 50mil connector and 6-pin 100mil connector)
  • Adapter board (20-pin 100mil connector, 6-pin 50mil connector and 10-pin 100mil connector)
  • 20-pin 100mil jumper cable
Microchip SAM Boot Assistance (SAM-BA) software provides an open set of tools for programming Microchip ARM Thumb-based microcontrollers and microprocessors.  Once the SAM-BA monitor is programmed, customers can use SAM-BA as a tool to re-program the MPU or MCU, without connecting to the debugger.

SAM-BA key features:
– Perform in-system programming through JTAG, RS232, or USB interfaces
– Provides both SAM embedded flash programing and external flash programing solutions
– May be used via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or started in batch mode from a DOS window
– Runs under Windows® XP, Vista and and 7 editions and Linux operating systems

SAM-ICE

Part Number: AT91SAM-ICE

SAM-ICE is a JTAG emulator designed for SAMA5, SAM3, SAM4, SAM7 and SAM9 ARM® core-based MCUs and MPUs, including Thumb mode. It supports download speeds up to 720K Bytes per second and maximum JTAG speeds up to 12 MHZ. It also supports Serial Wire Debug (SWD) and Serial Wire Viewer (SWV) from SAM-ICE hardware V6.
