Check Atmel for seminars...  

Last summer I signed up for an AVR32uc (single chip USB end device) seminar
for $100, got lunch, a nifty dev board with joystick, accelerometers,
buttons, etc. and an JTAGmkII...  Of course, you have to spend a day, but it
was worth it anyway to have help walking through setting up the Avr32 tool
chain, write a simple HID (wii like mouse), compile and debug...

Another possibility is to contact your nearest Atmel rep and borrow the tool
for a couple weeks.

Well, I've got a board based upon the ATmega2561 that I've just
received the boards for.  I'm now in the process of assembling the
boards, and soon will be debugging code I have for the device.  I've
used GCC and AVaRICE/GDB to do work in the past, and have enjoyed it.

The only problem now though is that I no longer have access to my
JTAGICE MkII.  I've switched jobs, and I had to give back my pod I was
using.  And looking at the price of the MkII, I'm shocked ($300!).
Well, I guess I shouldn't be since $300 is paltry for companies.  But
for the hobbyist, like me, it is a bit pricey.

So looking at the alternatives for debugging I find only the AVR
Dragon (at least on the Atmel site).  But the AVR Dragon only supports
debugging of devices with 32k or less of flash, which isn't
appropriate for my device.

So, are there other alternatives?  Or am I going to have to bite the
bullet and fork out the $300 for the MkII?
