In circuit emulator & gcc do they work on avrduno? I see avr ice 's at sparkfun is their a connector I need to solder or will the next version have it. Becouse of the tools do I have to use GCC to work with it or will the one you have work with a ice?
Also winavr & avrfreaks would proably help more if you had used gcc & winavr.
arduino doesn't support avr ice because the processor, atmega8, doesn't have jtag support
the next version of arduino will have an atmega168 that supports the debugwire protocol.
This protocol is proprietary and without documentation therefore supported only by avr-studio on windows.
