Someone mentioned MkII clones.  When I a search on eBay, perhaps to
find a used MkII, I found several items:


However, all were clones.  Most from China.  Specifically this one
item was listed:


Here's what bothers me about it though.  From their text:

"Tis item is  100% compatible with Atmel's AT JTAGICE mkII, It
supports AVR32 series of MCUs and can upgrade with avrstudio's upgrade

In order to be 100% compatible, and be upgradable via AVRStudio,
somebody has either 1) OEM'ed the MkII, 2) successfully cloned (clean
room approach), or 3) "cloned" it (as it pirated).

I don't think it is #1, since we would probably see OEMs from more
than China.  And #2 would mean there are probably going to be issues,
and Atmel won't support it.  Good luck getting support from China.  So
I suspect #3.  And that means no support and probably issues in

Just my $0.02 worth.
