Programming a Tiny85 with Arduino – January 2014

January 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Tiny85: a simple, cheap alternative to dedicating an Arduino to a long-term projectATtiny85 - Image credit: Atmel Atmel offers several processor chips in the same family as the Arduino’s ATMega328P that are often perfect for a simple permanent controller. This class introduces you to the ATTiny85, with mention of some others. You’ll leave with an ’85 running a simple blinkie with code you wrote, you ported to Tiny85, and you burned into the ’85 along with a mini shield to use an Arduino as a programmer for the ’85 and many other Atmel chips. The class is open to Arduino users with at least basic programming skills. (You’ll need to be able to modify the Blink sketch.) You’ll need to bring a working Arduino (or clone), a laptop with the Arduino 1.0.4 development environment, and a breadboard. We’ll supply a Tiny85.

Update 1/28/14:  The class went quite well.  Jim wrote up some notes on it including links to the slides and class handout here.
