Step 14: Get your own

Picture of Get your own
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 will be sending them as thank you gifts to the next 9 people that post Instructables that meet the following criteria:

- Was posted on or after October 12th, 2011
- Uses an Arduino or ATtiny
- Has 4 or more steps
- Has full original written and photo documentation

Simply post a link to your project in the comment section of this Instructable and I will compile a list of the first 50 people to properly complete a project and respond. All of these people will receive one one of these kits as a thank you gift.

where do you get your pcb's manufactured ? everywhere i have tried seems outlandishly expensive . i have noticed that small kits for sale are pretty cheap
but when i try to get a pcb manufactured (3" x 4") it costs like 300 bucks. any help would be great, thanks.

If you've got any kits left here is my instructable posted in December:

thanks.

If the offer is still valid then here is my project:
Light Sensing LEDs
Here's my Arduino project: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-an-Obstacle-Avoiding-Arduino-Robot/
Nice Instructable btw!

Got any of those ATtiny shields left?

If not, no worries, i'll make one as my next project.
But it would be nice if you saved me the work!


Here's my instructable. 16 digit display and an ATtiny85

Here is my instructable. I made a ATtiny shield with a few components and a pcb. It also explains how to program the ATtiny.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-and-use-the-arduino-as-an-Isp-for-an-A/

Your project is really nice :)
Tobias
I hope you still have some.

Here's my Instructable. It is very original and has never been tested on the ATTiny45/85.
It shows how to connect a character LCD to the ATTiny via a shift register, and how to generally program an ATTiny45/85 with an Arduino.
Here's the link:
http://www.instructables.com/id/ATTiny4585-LCD-display-control-with-a-shift-regis/.
By the way, I really love this project.
It is WAY easier programming chips your way than using a breadboard.
Keep up the good work :)
Hope I make the list :)

Here is my link, hope it makes the list! By the way Awesome shield and already have a project in mind for an ATtiny!

LexanPanda2 years ago
I'm not sure how I missed this Instructable, but this shield would have been a huge time saver when I made this with an ATtiny85V:

I don't suppose this qualifies me for one of these kits? (:

I'm not sure where you can find an Arduino, but if you want one of these shields, you just need to post a project using an Arduino or ATtiny chip following the instructions above.

Any more shield left? I'm trying to create a dead bug style fading RGB LED with the AtTiny, and I haven't found a good way to program them. They're gonna go inside my pumpkins on Halloween! Also, if you're looking for the project, I decided not to post it. It's very simple, requiring only a few solder points, so I'm pretty sure you could do it yourself. That's what DIY is about, isn't it?

I got my arduino last week, and this was my first self-directed project. It was fun, and I'd definitely do another instructable.

Your instructions are incomplete still. You need to show people how to configure the board so that the software speaks to the board. Your instructions currently won't get the Arduino to work.

These were posted before October 12th, 2011 and are not Step-by-Step projects with 4 or more steps. Perhaps you can repost them with step-by-step instructions for how to do it?
chrwei2 years ago
does it need to be arduino form factor compatible, or would something using teensyduino qualify?

Will you be giving away assembled or un-assembled shield kits??

Unassembled shield kits.

Cool! I wasn't going to make an instructable on this, especially since I still have some other projects in progress, but I could use one of those shields. I just started working with arduino a few months ago, but I am already running out of things to do with the materials I have.

Anyway, here's my instructable.

Thanks for being the first to share!

I'll add your name to the list and you should be contacted with instructions for claiming a shield within the next week.

Nice work! Looking forward to testing this out.

I assume the pins Vin and 3v3 on one header and AREF, 8 and 9 on the other, are just for cosmetics and not really in use?

I changed the PCB a bit, just to have it single sided with only 2 bridges on the top.

Thanks for posting!
