AVR Development with AVR JTAG and DebugWireKanda supply a range of AVR development kits, with different AVR board options, AVR ISP programmers and a different emulators, including JTAG ICE and AVR Dragon. This guide is written to help you choose the best AVR kit for your needs.
|AVR Board for 8, 20, 28 and 40-pin AVR microcontrollers||AVR Board for 64-pin mounted AVR microcontrollers|
Unless you have a specific project in mind that requires lots of pins and extra memory, the STK200 AVR board is the best for most people to start with.
Once you have selected your basic AVR board, STK200 or STK300, then your next choice is programmer or emulator (ICE) or both.
There are 3 hardware choices for AVR programming and debugging with STK200 and STK300 AVR board, depending on the target AVR microcontroller and your budget:
- AVRISP: USB In system programmer (AVR ISP) with its own software
(but can be run from AVRStudio when required)
for programming all AVR microcontrollers. AVRStudio Simulator can be used for debugging.
- AVR JTAGICE: In Circuit Emulator using JTAG Port and runs from AVRStudio software.
It has limited AVR device support
- AVR DRAGON: AVR ISP and Emulator in one package. It is a bare board, but Kanda supply all leads and adapters required. Runs from AVRStudio software and has ISP, JTAG and DebugWire (for emulating smaller AVR devices)
USB AVR ISP, AVR JTAG ICE and AVR DRAGON are available separately if you already have an AVR board, see links at bottom of page.
All the AVR kits include AVRStudio, C compiler, sample code, schematics, instructions and books on CD to get you up and running with AVR development. So, whatever your choice of AVR board and ISP or ICE, you have all the information you need to get going with AVR microcontrollers.
- SK200 and STK300:
Basic low cost kits with USB AVR ISP programmer. Debug via AVRStudio Simulator
- STK200ICE and STK300ICE:
Includes USB AVR ISP programmer and USB AVR JTAG ICE. Limited number of devices can be used with emulator
but it also includes AVR ISP, so you can program all AVR devices without using AVR Studio
- STK200-DRAGON and STK300-DRAGON : Includes AVR DRAGON which is an ISP and Emulator for nearly all AVR devices. It can only run from AVRStudio
