Hi,
Has anyone any experience of the OLIMEX AVR-JTAG?

Does it do what it says? Esp, in terms of its interfacing with AVR Studio (and GCC) and its ability to support the sort of debugging that is offered by the (far more expensive) ATMEL ICE devices.

Or, Is it too just good to be true?

thanks
Mark

I've had an Olimex JTAG dongle for about 6 months now and it works great. I had to upgrade the firmware in the dongle a few weeks ago because I changed to AVR Studio 4.09. The dongle firmware had be be updated because I had a very early version. However, I believe that the dongle firmware can be updated in newer version directly from Studio.
