avr butterfly and jtag

    I have bought an AVR Butterfly as my first step in exploring the
    wonderful world of microcontrollers, and have worked out how
    to compile and load programs into it using WinAVR, AVR Studio
    and the RS232 connection. And all for € 30!

    Now I want to try my hand at on board debugging. Do I just buy
    the JTAG dongle for € 45 and talk through it to the Butterfly
    with AVR Studio? I can hardly believe it is that simple.
    Why does the JTAG ICE cost
    so much more? Am I missing something here?

    Is there some issue with the fact that the dongle expects 5 volts from
    the target, but the Butterfly only takes up to 4.5 volts external power?

    Thanks for any advice

  2. JTag ISP dongle can only program the chip, not debugging.

    I can hardly believe it is that simple.
    Jtag ICE (In Circuit Emulator) can debug the target.
    I use two diodes to drop 5V to 3.6V to power the butterfly. The
    on-board battery is 3.6V, not 4.5V.
