Code Debugging

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to go about debugging code running on the soft AVR8? Is it possible to setup a breakpoint and step through code, or is it back to printf's and using the UART?

I am aware I can simulate the core in Webpack but I need it to interact with the other hardware I'm using to really get any testing done.

Unfortunately there are no debugging facilities available in the version of the AVR8 that we use. However the original author, Ruslan Lepetonek, has made a version of the AVR8 that implements the same debugger used in the atmel devices. He does charge for the debugger and there has not been enough interest in the past to put together a premium version that includes the debugger. You might contact him directly and see if he can give you a price?
