The JTAG ICE is a tool for developing and real time debugging for all AVR microcontrollers with JTAG interface.
The ICE allows acces to all features of the microcontrollers. You can set hardware breakpoint, access data and program memory, step through your application for debugging.
The ICE is a very easy to use in circuit programmer a well.
The ICE ist powered by the target ( 5V ).
It is connected to the development computer by serial link.
ATMEL provides a free of charge development system that supports the JTAG ICE ( AVR studio ) Please download at www.atmel.com .
You may work with the ICE under LINUX as well. There are lot's of free development tools, compilers and debuggers available, that work together with the JTAG ICE
The ICE works with all ATMEL controlers with JTAG Interface. ( ATMEGA16, ATMEGA32, ATMEGA64, ATMEGA128, 90CAN128 )
Please note our ATMEGA128 and ATMEGA256 Adapters for rapid prototyping
