I bought the Full Kit Atmel ICE (2016) to allow me to debug AVR chips. The Atmel ICE debugger can program both AVR as well as SAM for ARM Cortex. I have an Nordic Semiconductors nRF52-DK board which has an 64MHz ARM Cortex-M4F processor. Could I use the ICE kit to debug this development kit or is it locked to work only with Atmel Cortex chips? Will I have to buy another debugger kit? If so which will work with the nRF52-DK board?
just test it with OpenOCD and Atmel ICE via CMSIS-DAP - and it's working fine.
