Hi everybody,

I would like to write a program with the Atmel Studio for a new AVR controller with an UPDI interface. Which programmer could I use to program the controller?
Could I use a programmer which comes with the Programmer ATtiny416_Xplained_Nano board? If so, how could I program the controller on another board which is supplied with 3.3V instead of the 5V from USB which supply the programmer? I don't see a way to feed back the controller's supply voltage to the programmer.
If this is not possible, could I use a Pickit 4 with the Atmel studio? I didn't find any informations if this is possible and I don't want to change the IDE at the moment.
Thank you for your help!

The current programmer/debugger is the Atmel ICE, but other methods have been discussed here on AvrFreaks.

PICkit4 works with UPDI parts in Studio or MPLAB after switching it into "AVR mode". Xplained nano is single-voltage, so tricky to debug a 3V board with it.  Alternatively if you get yourself a Curiosity Nano board (eg: mega4809) it is variable-voltage capable and will thus work with a few simple mods. Of course you can't go wrong with a Atmel-ICE either...

Thank you for these informations. I wonder why I didn't find this information on the internet, but it is good to hear that PICkit4 works with the AVR Studio.

This programmer is quite versatile and cheap, I will buy one.
