ATtiny Programming Shield for Arduino

About: Why would i buy something ready made when i can make it myself with half the features for twice the money? DIY!

This was made to program ATtiny85 and ATtiny2313 micro controllers using one ZIFF socket. I suspect it would be compatible with more versions of the ATtiny, but these are the 2 i am familiar with.

A  10uF capacitor and 10K resistor are needed when programming the ATtiny2313 and is not needed when programming the ATtiny85 so there is a 2 pin jumper to disconnect them and reconnect as needed.  

There is a power on LED as well as an LED for each ATtiny connected to Pin 3 for the 85 and Pin 11 for the 2313. They can be used with the blink sketch for testing shield operations. 
In the IDE the pin numbers would need to be changed to 4 for the 85 and 8 for the 2313 if you want the LED's to work with the blink sketch.

    Thanks for all the kind words i keep getting from you.
    That shield probably was under 5 USD that's not including the chip in the ZIF socket.
    I have made it my personal challenge to try and make all solder tracks instead of point to point soldering when ever posible. I have unsoldered half a board before to be able to re route tracks so everything would fit.
    What your next project?

    well,i'm thinking of something to enter in the kit contest and well,i'm not really getting any ideas .Could you suggest some or give me a source where you can find circuits,
    cheers

    Instructables won't let me reply to a reply for some reason... (won't accept my captcha)

    That's the original blog post I made on my first version. There's a link at the top to a new blog post on the latest version, which covers the newer features (ATtiny2313 support, indicator LEDs).

    Very nice! Other pin-compatible ATtiny chips are the ATtiny4313, ATtiny25, ATtiny45, ATtiny13, and I believe the ATtiny11 and ATtiny12 are as well.

    I made a shield like this myself (google ArduinoISP Deluxe Shield, not sure if it'd be appropriate to link it here) that supports the ATtiny13/24/25/44/45/84/85/2313/4313 and ATmega8/48/88/168/328.
