In-circuit debugger and programmer unveiled by Atmel
A new mid range in-circuit debugger and programmer has been unveiled by Atmel. The JTAGICE3 supports all Atmel AVR 8 and 32bit mcus and is said to be smaller, faster, and more robust than the previous generation.
The device connects to the company's recently launched AVR Studio 5 and supports faster in-system debug and programmer with full control of all mcu features and configurations. The new design is said to allow the debugger to program the on-chip 256KB flash AVR microcontroller in less than 14s. It also offers full support for JTAG, aWire, SPI and PDI serial program, as well as debug interfaces used in AVR microcontrollers.
The JTAGICE3 is capable of programming mcus powered by 1.8 to 5.5V and supports three hardware program breakpoints, one maskable data breakpoint and up to 128 software breakpoints. Measuring 2.1 x 3.4in, the debugger is housed in a heavy duty plastic casing and powered by a usb port. It can be embedded as a link controlled by the customer's application running under Windows or Linux.
"The combination of AVR Studio 5 and the JTAGICE3 in-circuit debugger and programmer provides embedded developers a complete solution to program and debug any Atmel AVR 8 and 32bit microcontroller," said Haakon Skar, director of AVR Marketing, Atmel. "The combined features offer a true seamless experience for AVR developers and will help bring their prototype designs faster to market."
