I am considering a classroom setup with some kind of microcontroller development/evaluation card, and programming and On-chip debugging facilities.
Some kind of Arduino board and a Dragon is of-course an interesting alternative.
I only own one Dragon, and it's one of the original V1 gifts. (Thank you, Atmel!)
Now, in a classroom some abuse or accidents are to be expected (even though we're talking about adult course attendants). So, for those of you having used an AVR Dragon V2:
Have you fried it? If so, under what circumstances?
(Yes, if I opt for the Dragon I will shield them. Yes if I opt for the dragon, I will keep a spare or two.)
