Topic: Atmel-ICE with Arduino IDE ? (Read 348 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi :)

I have an Atmel-ICE Programmer and I've some trouble to use it with the Arduino IDE.

I've installed the driver of the Atmel-ICE, plugged it to the ISP header of my Arduino Uno board (my board is aslo supplied). The green led on my ICE indicate that the device is correctly powered on.

However, when I try to upload a sketch (a basic on, like "blink") I got an error :

avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"

I've tried to send the sketch by clicking "upload with programmer" but it doesnt work.

The default programmer type is AVRISPmkII but it doesn't work either with USBTinyUSB choice...

Any ideas ?

Thank you :)


Bump. I am having the same issue.

The ATMEL AVRISPmkII is no longer available. So I purchased an ICE programmer. I have been unable to get it to work on Mac OS X 10.10 and Arduino IDE 1.6.4

Same error - can't find usb device "usb"

Well, you can choose the programmer if you add

Code: [Select]

atprogram_atmelice_isp.name=Atmel Studio ATMEL-ICE (ISP)
atprogram_atmelice_isp.program.extra_params=-t atmelice -i ISP
atprogram_atmelice_isp.help=Connect the programmer to the ICSP port

atprogram_jtagicemkii_isp.name=Atmel Studio JTAG ICE MK2 (ISP)

to the programmers file in


but the Arduino IDE cant use it since the only port it recognizes is a com port and the ICE isnt initialized as a com port but a USB-Device...


Sorry my fault, I didnt know you can choose "upload with programmer" :D

But it doesnt work either, I get the following error:
"Error while uploading: missing 'program.params.quiet' configuration parameter"
