Follows are directions for programming the ATtiny microcontrollers using the Arduino IDE. In plain English, this is how to program 8-pin Atmel chips a...
You will need: - Arduino - Breadboard - ATtiny85 (or ATtiny45) - 10uF 16V electrolytic capacitor - 220ohm 1/4 watt resistor - LED - solid core hookup...
Connect the Arduino to the ATtiny as follows: Arduino +5V --- ATtiny Pin 8 Arduino Ground --- ATtiny Pin 4 Arduino Pin 10 --- A...
Select the "ArduinoISP" sketch from the "Examples" menu. Upload the sketch to your Arduino as you would any other sketch. Your Arduino is now config...
Put the 10uF capacitor between ground and the Arduino reset pin. Make sure to keep an eye on the capacitors polarity (ground to ground!). It is rumor...
Take note of your sketchbook folder from the Arduino preference menu. Create a new folder in your sketchbook folder called "hardware" Then, go to th...
Select from the top menu: Tools -- Board -- ATtiny85 (w/ Arduino as ISP) (Of course, you will want to select a different chip for this if you are usi...
Connect a 220 ohm resistor to pin 5. Connect an LED between the resistor and +5V. It should blink. Congratulations. You're done.
We have a be nice comment policy. Please be positive and constructive.
I see you connecting the diode to +5V. Doesn't it fry the micro controller? In my head I would rather go Pin 0 -> diode -> 220ohm -> GND
Great tutorial, really helpful! I had only one problem with the pin-out of the ATtiny85 but I figured it out.
This is a great tutorial!! I have just one question, can I use the EEPROM and WIRE libraries with the ATTINY45 the datasheet says it support the i2c protocol ...
