Programming a Tiny85 with Arduino – January 2014

January 25, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Workshop 88,
481 N Main St, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137 United States

Tiny85: a simple, cheap alternative to dedicating an Arduino to a long-term project 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…
