ATtiny10 Development Board with USB-C and Micro USB

ATtiny10 Development Board with USB-C and Micro USB

If you like using the simplest possible chip for each of your applications, then the ATtiny10 development board will strongly appeal to you.

The ATtiny10 development board from Bobricius is a low-power high-performance 6-pin processor equipped with both USB-C and Micro-USB for powering purposes only. True to its name “tiny”, the chip is about the same size as an 0805 SMD resistor but despite its size, the ATtiny10 development board still has features similar to larger AVR chips; still a great way to jump into microcontroller electronics.

The New ATtiny 10 Development Board

“This board is for advanced users”

, says the Slovakia-based designer,

“the ATtiny10 is a high-performance, low-power Microchip 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller that combines 1KB ISP flash memory, 32B SRAM, four general-purpose I/O lines, 16 general purpose working registers, a 16-bit timer/counter with two PWM channels, internal and external interrupts, programmable watchdog timer with internal oscillator, an internal calibrated oscillator, a 4-channel / 8-bit A/D converter, and four software selectable power saving modes,” he adds.

Some features of the new development board include;

  • A single row header
  • 6x LEDs controlled with 3 GPIO
  • An unsoldered 6 – pin edge programming header USBasp compatible TPI
  • Gold plated PCB board (0.6mm) and,
  • One reset button
  • Operating Voltage: 1.8 volts – 5.5 volts
  • Power Options: Either from the header, PCB micro USB, PCB USB-C or CR2032

The Microchip’s miniature 6-pin processor has already been used for quite a number of projects, like the ATtiny10 Thermometer and ATtiny10 POV Pendant. With a host of shields to extend its functionalities, the ATtiny10 development board is considered perfect for designing interface logic for projects and building small gadgets and wearables.

To work with the ATtiny10 on a breadboard, you can make use of an SOT23 breakout board, just like the one available from Sparkfun.

The ATtiny10 development board comes preloaded with sample flashing codes, more information on the board can be found on Tindie where it currently sells for $12.99.

Technoblogy also has further details about the ATtiny10 including simple applications with example programs and step by step instructions on how to program the board using the familiar Arduino IDE. Shipping usually takes about 2 – 3 days but Bobricius says that things may become different now as a result of the current pandemic.
