USB AVR, Atmel Studio 6 and the ATtiny84

Can I use the Pololu USB AVR programmer with Atmel Studio 6 to develop and debug the ATtiny84? I just am doing the research but I’m thinking all I have to do is provide the proper connections from the ribbon cable to my prototype that contains the ATtiny84, right? Will this work and if so, does it provide any sort of debugging capabilities? I’m looking to prototype code in C, build it, download and run, repeat. Etc. Thanks.


You should be able to program your ATtiny using Atmel Studio 6 and our USB AVR Programmer; however, the programmer does not have hardware debugging capabilities. When you program the ATtiny, you will have to provide it with power.
