  • 1.62 to 5.5V target operation
  • USB powered
  • Provides both ARM Cortex Debug Connector (10-pin) pin-out and AVR JTAG connector pin-out

Supported Software

  • Perfectly supports Atmel Studio 6.2 or higher version
  • Directly supports ICC8AVR or higher version
  • Supports programming HEX files generated by ICCAVR, CVAVR, IAR, etc.

Atmel-ICE Connection Options

Note :
While connecting the adapter board to a target, please pay attention to the Pin 1 (indicated by white spot or square solder pad).
The adapter board included in Atmel-ICE-B2 is compatible with the official one in the Atmel-ICE Full Kit.

① 10-pin AVR JTAG header

② 6-pin AVR ISP/debugWIRE/PDI/aWire/TPI header


10-pin AVR ISP header is also available through our extra free 6-pin to 10-pin ISP cable

③ 10-pin SAM JTAG/SWD header
