I just got my brand new ATMEL ICE... I installed Atmel Studio 7 on my Win10 VM (Virtualbox). ICE was attached during install, so drivers seem to be there. I also got the message, that the firmware can now be updated, which I did.
So, here's the current scenario:
I imported a very simple sketch (blink sketch) form Arduino IDE to Atmel Studio. This works great so far. Building the project works without any visible error.
But if I open "Tools -> Device Programming", I'm lost... There's only one thing working: Reading target voltage.
Attached to the ICE is an Arduino NANO (ATmega328P, 5V/16Mhz), which is powered with a 5V source. The ATMEL ICE is connected with the 6-pin connector to the ICSP port of the Arduino Board.
The ICE has two leds active:
The left one which light green, (--> switches to "off" if I remove the power source from arduino) and the center one which lights red as long as the ICE is connected to the PC.
If I click on "Device signature Read" button, I get the following error message:
I read that the ISP clock might be the problem. So I tried different values down to 8Khz and up to 4Mhz ... No change. still the same error.
The Arduino NANO itself works fine. The blink-sketch (which has been programmed with the Arduino IDE upfront) is working fine: The onboard-LED is blinking as expected.
Writing a new Arduino Bootloader with ArduinoIDE + USBTinyISP works as well.
But as soon as I use the ATMEL ICE + AS7 + NANO, the only thing that works is reading the target voltage.
I tried exactly the same with an Arduino Leonardo (ATmega32u4, 5V/16Mhz). This works quite well. Reading device signature works. But with the NANO/328P it isn't working.
So, is there anybody out there who can give me a hint on what the problem is?!
