Hello:

I am working with the tiny '26 & much to my surprose have been able to do it all with the STK500....However, many hours would be saved if I had had an emulator...Are there any good ones out there less than $300 or so. $500+ is too much for me to make the plunge. Atmel appears to have a low cost emulator, but as far as I can tell it won't work with the '26. Is this true?

When in the dark remember-the future looks brighter than ever.   I look forward to being able to predict the future!

The new ATJTAGICE mkII will not work with the TINY26. However, It will work with the new TINY25 (which is not released yet). Recently, I changed my TINY26 design to a MEGA48 design. The MEGA48 is compatable with the ATJTAGICE mkII debug system. In addtion, there is very little price difference (if any) between the TINY26 and the MEGA48. Also, the MEGA48 has more memory plus and addtional timer.

This sounds like an advertisment for the MEGA48 8)

Heres a link to the "MKII" flyer. I believe that it is priced at around $299.00.

The only emulators that support the tiny26 are the ICE40 ($1000) and ICE50 ($3500)

Is it possible to use a larger part (an ATmega part) for development and debugging? If so you could buy a JTAG-ICE or build your own. Otherwise you can debug by turning on an LED or something when a certain condition is true or false. That's not the most effective way to debug, but unless you have $1000 for an ICE40, or unless you can figure out how to use a device with a JTAG interface, that's all that you can do.

Hi,

SCKT3700A1 Blue 1

The information not in your printed manual can be found in the Help of AVR Studio.

Click on Help, then click on AVR Tools User Guide, then click on the picture of the STK500 and then (under Hardware Description) click on ISP Programming. The tiny26 is towards the bottom of the blue and/or gray table.

Atmel have stopped updating the pdf's of the printed manuals. All updates now are done to the Studio Help files.

Regards,
Steve

Thanks a lot Steve. Thats what i am looking for.

Seems that the help function of the AVRstudio is the first one(i dont use them often, because in other programs they never helped me) that can realy help if i take a look in it. :wink:
