I am a new user to PlatformIO / VSCode and planning to use it for a first project in Arduino (having done lots of projects previously with the Arduino v1 IDE). I am using the ATMEGA1284P chip and wish to use the debugging capabilities of the chip / platform.
The chip has JTAG capabilities, but I am not sure what I need to interface with it and debug using it. Segger say that their J-Link debugger is not compatible with the 8bit MCU.
The link here - ATmega1284P — PlatformIO latest documentation says “ATmega1284P has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.” but I don’t understand how that is intended to work?
Help / pointers / info appreciated.
Thanks very much
