I would like to get ICE, because I want debug my programs.
And I want to program them like I'm doing now with my LPT programmer.
And I want to have it on USB because just 1 computer here have LPT port and it's running windows, I would like to move it to different one running Linux, but don't have ltp.
I already got USB programer but it's the cheap USB emulation in SW MCU and on my windows machine it's runing just sometimes (various jumper settings) and not reliable to write, just sometime I could read something. And on the Linux I just got everytime different error and I think the HW is just too cheap to be useful.
Now I'm looking after this one
I think ST500 was solid one, I think I could get it working with most SW (AVR studio,IAR), Linux as well. But no debuging.
The this one:
I don't know on what this clone is based on, or compatible.
From this company I got the cheap USB programer and I'm little bit in fear if this one hase real USB chip or just some emulation.
If it's for AVR Studio 4.12 that is good? Or bad, I'm newbie here, I think for different version of AVR studio I need different boatloader or firmaware or something. So 4.12 is good one? And If I need update I need to flash the device somehow with the avr studio fw? IAR debuger need some different protocol, or some have som common standard protocol and work with more debuging sws, I'm now using CodeVision in WINE emulation on linux and then programing with PonyProg on diferent machine. Later I want to use same machine to code and program (still CodeVision) and debug in AVR studio. And perhaps later go to IAR.
Can I with this debbuger program as well? I think so just I'm not so sure when I have ICA JTAG is 100% sure that I will be able to program it as well.
Is the ICE able to reprogram chip with wrong fuses?
And this one:
This one looks good, just it could use some case.
What do you think on this one.
But the postage is to Ireland as expensive as device, so it's 50$
The last one:
I don't know If I can afford this one, but if the previous are just crap, I will rather wait and buy this one.
I like that is supported by the avrstudio upgrade tool, so when new avr studio comes I could have ability to get new fw inside it, I don't know if the previous have this
And perhaps I could be flashed to work for diferenet IDE not avrstudio, or not?
Should I forget the whole ebay and get from serious source? Like avrfreaks? :)
Prehaps this one could the job done:
Or it's to DIY, like this one
People, I'm absolutely clue less, I have there is some serious device just right for me but I don't know which one it is :)
