UPDI programmer compatible with Arduino IDE

Antti Mäntyniemi designed this board, which is a UPDI programmer that utilizes Arduino IDE to program AVR microcontrollers. This kind of programmer is used to programm the new 0-series and 1-series ATtiny mcus using Arduino IDE. The project files are available on github.com so you can...

Program ATtiny 0-Series Chips with a Miniature UPDI Dongle

Thanks to their tiny size and improved capabilities, the ATtiny-0-Series of microcontrollers have been a delight for designers and DIYers looking for a microcontroller with the ease of use associated with the Arduino boards, but with a way smaller form factor associated with ATtiny...

Program ATtiny 0-Series Chips with This Miniature UPDI Dongle

This is a USB-stick sized UPDI programmer, for programming Microchip's new 0-series and 1-series ATtiny chips from the Arduino IDE. It's based on an ATmega328P, and is essentially an Arduino Uno on a USB stick, so you also could use it as a mini-sized Arduino Uno. by David...

Minimal I2C for the New AVR Microcontrollers

This article describes a set of minimal I2C routines for the new 0-series and 1-series ATtiny and ATmega microcontrollers. They allow any of these processors to act as an I2C Master and connect to I2C peripherals. As an example of their use I've designed a digital clock circuit based on...

Getting started with the new ATtiny chips

David Johnson-Davies introduces us to the new ATtiny series microcontrollers and shows us how to program then with Arduino IDE. He writes: In 2016 Microchip/Atmel announced a completely new range of chips designed to replace their older ATmega and ATtiny ranges. The new ATtiny chips...

Attiny Programmer (using Arduino UNO)

by CrtSuznik @ instructables.com: The Arduino UNO is small, but if you require your project to be in a small enclosure, the UNO might be way too big. You could try using a NANO or MINI, but if you really want to go small, you go tiny, Attiny to be precise. They are quite small, cheap...
