I have been using ICE200 in two projects and was quite satisfied. Its good value for money.

BUT: I used an AT90S2313 in SOIC package in my first project. To use ICE200 in my target system I bought an adapter from Emulation Technology for $80. Expensive! In my second project I used a QFP AT90LS8535. Emulation Technology charged me the senseless amount of $265! Unbelievable!

Does anyone know a good source for reasonable priced surface mount emulator adapters for the AVR.

Hello,

Atmel has a list of 3rd party vendors at the official site. There's an Emulator section there. Please visit

Atmel has a SMD kit for the ICE200 available for a small amount of money (dont remember exactly how much). I have tried this kit and it works well (place a piece of paper underneath the adapter before soldering it to your target (to lift it a bit from the board). Then you may just remove the solder by a solder wick and re use the adapter.)
Talk to your ATMEL disti and ask for the SMDKIT.

What is thee order number for this SMD kit? Does it support AT90LS8535 in TQFP?

I guess its a 3rd Party product, but cant find it on the link Morten gave. Please help.

Emulation Technologies has plenty of nice adapters but several of them are very spendy. Winslow Adaptics makes some emulation parts for Atmel. They have some parts in some of Atmel's emulators. Some of ET's adapters are only available with a socket for the SMT part so the cost is high. Winslow has several with no socket. You have to solder the SMT part on the adapter board so they are much cheaper. You could say they are a throw-away adapter, but at a throw away price. Check them out at www.winslowadaptics.com One issue is that Winslow ships from UK so you'll likely have to add a day for shipping.
I needed an adapter for a 48 pin SMT part to 48 pin DIP. ET had one with a socket for $185. I ordered one without a socket from Winslow for $16. Another time I wanted to purchase a part from Winslow for $37 but I had to buy it from ET for $52 since I needed it the next day and I couldn't get it from Winslow that fast (already closed for the day - UK)
You can also check out Digikey. They have some small soic to DIP adapters too at a good price. Goto www.digikey.com and search for surfboard. Or goto www.capitaladvanced.com

Thanks, Scott Pierskalla

Hello. The SMDKIT is an Atmel product, not 3rd party. I dont know why its not at the Atmel homepage nor here, but it should still be available (for apx $99 i think). This kit has adapters for 2313, 2323,8515,8535 and t12. It supports both PLCC and TQFP for AT90S8535. I think the ordercode was just SMDKIT (not quite sure). Try contacting your Atmel disti.

and I second that (embarassing to have forgotten the SMD kit!). I'd just like to add where you can find your local disti:
