I'm just working on my first major project and also using it as a learning experience. I have decided to go down the Atmel Studio route but pop into Arduino to test basic principles.
I am using an ATmega 328PB, ATMega2560(I think U4) designation.
Anyway, I am increasingly finding I need some form of hardware debugger and ideally a programmer. Now, I am getting really confused with all the terms used for various options and pieces of hardware from both Atmel and forums when I search what's out there - from JTAG to debugwire, dragon, ICE, SDK500, etc etc.
Unfortunately the cost of the genuine Atmel kit is prohibitive for me what with losing job and Covid, but even if I DID have the required pennies I still cannot work out what I would buy too many options ..... Help!!!!
Oh, it would be nice to have high voltage programming for fuses so which rabbit hole do I go down.
