After many attempt to make the Atmel STK500 work, I finally got it running. This sounds and is great. having overcome the problems to make it work. but once it was working I found the biggest problem that I have with the STK500. The STK500 is a programmer with some hardware debugging features around it. It does not support JTAG programmer or other types of debugging. You program the code in and then test it. This great for a very small project but I do not want to be limited by this option. I want to debug in an easier way using a debugger so I bought a new board. Which is actually cheaper then the STK500.
