Hello everybody, rencently i bought the ATMEL ICE programmer and debugger(i have not use it yet, because im in tesis), but when i was reading the instructions it says that you dont need any program it install itself when conected to computer, but reading down in the document you see thats say that need a installer program
so will it need a instaler program or not, and if it need it, where can i download?
this is the text:
"The Atmel-ICE communicates primarily using a standard HID interface and does not require a special
driver on the host computer. To use the advanced Data Gateway functionality of the Atmel-ICE, be sure to
install the USB driver on the host computer. This is automatically done when installing the front-end
software, which is provided free by Microchip. See http://www.microchip.com/ for further information and
to download the latest front-end software.
The Atmel-ICE must be connected to an available USB port on the host computer by using the USB cable
provided, or a suitable and certified Micro-USB cable. The Atmel-ICE contains a USB 2.0 compliant
controller and can operate in both full-speed and high-speed modes. For best results, connect the Atmel-
ICE directly to a USB 2.0 compliant high-speed hub on the host computer using the cable provided.
The Atmel-ICE is powered by the USB bus voltage. It requires less than 100 mA to operate, and can,
therefore, be powered by a USB hub. The power LED will illuminate when the unit is plugged in. When
not connected in an active programming or debugging session, the unit will enter low-power consumption
mode to preserve your computer's battery. The Atmel-ICE cannot be powered down. It should be
unplugged when not in use."
my native idiom is not the english and this is the first time that i buy a programmer, before this i was using and arduino with avrdude
