Can anybody shed any light on why it is that there are no third party emulators for the ATMega series parts? Or if they know of any, could they enlighten me?
Atmel tell us they have shipped 500 million AVRs (not necessarily ATMega series parts, I concede), so you would have thought that Lauterbach, or iSystem, or Phyton, or whoever, would have found it worth their while producing something. Or are Atmel refusing to release bond out parts? In which case, can we put some pressure on them to change their policy?
From the earliest days of emulators, manufacturers' own tools have been best avoided, and that seems still to be the case :(
