Step 2: Prep for Programming

Picture of Prep for Programming
If you have a programming board, you can skip this step. If you are using a USBtinyISP or similar, use a breadboard to wire the chip to the proper connections of the programmer. More instructions on how to do this can be found here. The pinout for the chip can be found on the datasheet here.

Connect the Arduino to the ATtiny as follows:
Arduino +5V ---> ATtiny Pin 8
Arduino Ground ---> ATtiny Pin 4
Arduino Pin 10 ---> ATtiny Pin 1
Arduino Pin 11 ---> ATtiny Pin 5
Arduino Pin 12 ---> ATtiny Pin 6
Arduino Pin 13 ---> ATtiny Pin 7
I just bought my arduino Uno Rev 3 and I have it connected to my computer. The blink test works. But I am having issues figuring out how to build the programing board. How do you know where to plug in the leads coming from the board onto the Arduino? I spent a good time searching and reading different forums and came up empty handed. Your assistance in any way possible would be greatly appreciated as I am a novice taking my first stab at micro-controllers. Thanks

Hmm... Is this what you are looking for?
