AVR Development with AVR JTAG and DebugWire

Kanda supply a range of AVR development kits, with different board options, ISP programmers and a different emulators, including JTAG ICE and AVRDragon. This guide is written to help you choose the best kit for your needs.


AVR Development Boards
The first choice is to select your board. Both boards have LEDS, switches, UART, LCD interface etc.

Board for 8, 20, 28 and 40-pin devices Board for 64-pin mounted devices

Unless you have a specific project in mind that requires lots of pins and extra memory, the STK200 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.

Which Programmer or Emulator Do You Need?

There are 3 hardware choices for AVR programming and debugging with STK200 and STK300 boards, depending on the target microcontroller and your budget:
  • AVRISP: USB In system programmer (AVRISP) 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 device support

  • AVR DRAGON: AVRISP 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 devices)

USB AVRISP, AVR JTAG ICE and AVR DRAGON are available separately if you already have an AVR board, see links at bottom of page.

Which Development kit should you choose?

All the 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 board and ISP or ICE, you have all the information you need to get going with AVR microcontrollers.
  1. SK200 and STK300: Basic low cost kits with USB AVRISP programmer. Debug via AVRStudio Simulator

  2. STK200ICE and STK300ICE: Includes USB programmer and JTAGICE. Limited number of devices can be used with emulator but it also includes AVR ISP, so you can program all devices without using AVRStudio

  3. STK200-DRAGON and STK300-DRAGON : Includes AVR DRAGON which is an ISP and Emulator for nearly all devices. It can only run from AVRStudio
