Introduction to the Atmel-ICE:
Atmel-ICE is a powerful development tool for debugging and programming ARM Cortex-M based Atmel SAM and Atmel AVR microcontrollers with On-Chip Debug capability.
- Programming and on-chip debugging of all Atmel AVR UC3 microcontrollers on both JTAG and aWire interface.
- Programming and on-chip debugging of all AVR XMEGA family devices on both JTAG and PDI 2-wire interface.
- Programming (JTAG and SPI) and debugging of all AVR 8-bit microcontrollers with OCD support on both JTAG or debugWIRE interfaces.
- Programming and debugging of all Atmel SAM ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers on both SWD and JTAG interface.
- Programming (TPI) of all Atmel tinyAVR 8-bit microcontrollers with support for this interface.
- Fully compatible with Atmel Studio
- Supports programming and debugging of all Atmel AVR UC3 32-bit microcontrollers
- Supports programming and debugging of all 8-bit AVR XMEGA devices
