Programming an ATtiny w/ Arduino

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Trés cool programming of an ultra-cheap ATtiny 45/85 using the Arduino IDE. Perfect for embedded systems. Now there's no reason for me to go back to PICAXE!

This tutorial shows you how to program an ATtiny45 or ATtiny85 microcontroller using the Arduino software and hardware. The ATtiny45 and ATtiny85 are small (8-leg), cheap ($2-3) microcontrollers that are convenient for running simple programs. They are almost identical, except that the ATtiny85 has twice the memory of the ATtiny45 and can therefore hold more complex programs. We like to use both of them with paper circuits and other craft electronics. To program them, we’ll use a port of the Arduino core libraries created by Alessandro Saporetti and slightly modified by HLT.
