The 8-Pin Programming Shield allows you to program ATtiny series chips using the Arduino itself as the programmer. In other words, you plug this into ...
What you will need: - Shield circuit board (download the source file: 8pinshielf.pcb) - ATtiny chip - 8-pin 0.3" socket - SPST tactile switch - 10uF ...
Solder the 6-pin and 8-pin male headers to the circuit board such that they are pointing down from the underside of the board. These headers will plu...
Solder the resistor to the board in the spot that kind of looks like a resistor outline right below the bottom of the chip's footprint. Make sure to ...
Solder the tactile switch atop the large square footprint that is in the shape of a tactile switch. This is the chip's reset switch.
Solder the socket in place. Make certain that the notch in the socket aligns with the notch on the screen printed footprint. To be more clear, the n...
Solder the 2-pin headers to the top of the board as shown.
Next solder the two 4-pin female sockets on each side of the chip's socket.
Make certain that the flat notched side of the LED lines up with the flat side of the LED footprint and then solder it in place.
Electrolytic capacitors are polarized, which means they can allow electricity to flow in one direction, so you don't want to wire this backwards. Car...
Put the shorting blocks onto the 2-pin header. You may want to consider removing the shorting block next the LED during programming (and circuit depe...
Insert an ATtiny chip into the socket such that the notch in the chip lines up with the notch in the socket.
Plug the programming shield into the Arduino such that the labels on the shield align with corresponding pins on the board.
Plug the whole thing into your computer and program the ATtiny chip using the programming directions found here. *Note: You can skip ahead to Step 3 ...
I started with 50 of these 8-Pin Programming Shield Kits to give away. I have no more kits to give away! Thanks to everyone who participated. I wil...
