This board is an adapter for the AtmelICE programmer.

The AtmelICE is a very versatile in system programmer and debugger, but it has a couple of small drawbacks. It doesn’t supply target power at all, and the cable they supply to adapt to 6 pin 100 mil sockets is kind of fragile.

This board fixes both of those. You use a straight-through 10 pin 50 mil cable from the AtmelICE and then a standard 6 pin 100 mil cable to the target. Optionally, you can connect a USB cable up to the board and a jumper will select between injecting +5 volts or +3.3 volts (from an on-board LDO) to the target power line.

The pinout should work for ISP and PDI devices (ATTiny, ATMega and ATXmega).
