Atmel AVR boards: evaluation; proto-typing; training; single board computers; AVR Ethernet and AVR web server, starter kits.
Starter & Evaluation kits are intented for beginners or small development projects of little complexity. They are much less powerful tools than emulators. However, they are completely sufficient for many purposes. Virtually all starter kits provide development software (IDE and assembler - some also BASIC or a limited C-compiler version) and support in-system programming of AVR micros. They also include test hardware in form of a board that holds an AVR microcontrolller; so they have everything included that you need to get started.
You will also find AVR based single board computers (SBC) and complete ready-to use applications in this category. The AVR Ethernet & Web Server Starter Kit, for example, is a complete embedded AVR web server with Ethernet connectivity that you can use as-is to add Ethernet and web connectivity to your own applications.
Some AVR kits work with a large number of optional Add-On Boards, making them a flexible choice for rapid AVR prototyping, AVR training and AVR educational use.
