ATtiny85/45/25 LED dice

If you have looked at my 5 LED ATtiny85 POV display, we programmed the ATtiny with the Arduino. (If you haven't seen it, click here) We will be doing the same thing for this LED Dice project. The total parts cost for this project is about $5-$10. (Not including the Arduino board and the tools.) It is super simple to make, so don't worry if you don't have a lot of programming/ electronics experience. This is ...

Attiny serial monitor using arduino walkthrough

Allllllllllright dudes and dudets. Here is whats up, we're going to make attiny and arduino bestest of friends. If you have ever worked with capacitive switches you know how much it makes you want to smash your face into a wall...Now imagine you have no way to monitor output, well that is what I was running into. Problem is you can never know what the output is with stock settings of an attiny. So my soluti ...

Programming an ATtiny w/ Arduino 1.0

This tutorial shows you how to program an ATtiny45, ATtiny85, ATtiny44 or ATtiny84 microcontroller using the Arduino software. These are small, cheap ($2-3) microcontrollers that are convenient for running simple programs. The ATtiny45 and ATtiny85 have eight legs and are almost identical, except that the ATtiny85 has twice the memory of the ATtiny45 and can therefore hold more complex programs. The ATtiny4 ...

How to use the IR library with an attiny using Arduino

This Instructable will tell you how to use the IR (infrared) library on an Attiny. I will be using an Attiny85 with an Arduino Uno. I won't cover how to upload sketches to the Attiny just how to use the IR library with it. the best tutorial on uploading sketches I've found is this YouTube tutorial : (a quck note and warning, You will need to have software serial working for the attiny (follow this instructa ...

ATTiny powered Arduino Projects

Arduino is a great platform. No question. But what if I told you that you could take your entire board and compact it into tiny package. And I mean really small. The chip in the picture is an ATTiny84, and that is the big version. So if your project only needs a few pins and isn't very complicated, this little chip and do it in a fraction of the space! Not only that, but each of these ATTiny chips are only ...

Program an ATtiny with Arduino

Follows are directions for programming the ATtiny microcontrollers using the Arduino IDE. In plain English, this is how to program 8-pin Atmel chips as you would normally an Arduino. This is cool because the ATtiny is tiny, and - well - this allows you to make tiny things that don't need a big ol' microcontroller. The instructions I have posted here are pretty much the same as instructions given by the incr ...

ATtiny programming with Arduino

After this Instructable you should be able to program an A Ttiny85/45 with an arduino. It may sound complex but it really isn't. After doing some research I could not find to much info on how this could be done. I however did find http://www.instructables.com/id/Program-an-ATtiny-with-Arduino/. This Instructable is my interpretation of what I learned from Randy. Step 1: Things you will need Arduino AT tiny ...

Color Changing Night Light with ATtiny using Arduino

I wanted to create something for my wife as a present and this is what I came up with. This is a dark activated color changing night light. It has a sensor that can tell when the room light is turned off. This then will light a RGB LED and slowly fade through different colors. Its brains is a ATtiny85, but you could also use an Arduino.  We have little boys that would appreciate this on at night. Step 1: Pa ...
