Will atmel SAM-ICE work on the nxp microcontroller board

Started by email_kc June 11, 2007
I was given a atmel SAM-ICE which is used on the atmel arm 7
controller. I wonder will it work with the nxp evaluation boards ? I
am thinking about getting a keil eval board.

Will it work ?

Thanks!

Hi:

The SAM-ICE won't work with NXP processors. It is a limited JTAG
debugger only for Atmel MCU.

I would suggest get a JLINK(IAR) or ULINK2(Keil).

Regards,

Alex

Or, you can go the route of the OpenOCD + a USB JTAG unit for < $80.
See: http://www.openhardware.net/Embedded_ARM/OpenOCD_JTAG/

It worked well for me on a Mandriva Linux box. I'm sure that you could
put something similar together for a windows box as well, and as
cheaply. I would suggest you forgo a wiggler if you can afford it.
