The Tiny Tiny Series

Before I left to do some training I had bought 25 ATTiny85’s . I still have them and I’m trying to figure out projects for them. So one at a time I will be making projects with them.

For those who don’t know about the ATTiny85 its a 8 pin micro controller. It’s a convenient, solution for very small projects, has a built in 8Mhz clock (with the clock prescaler set to 8, so effectively operating at 1Mhz), can operate with 5V supplies and upto 6 IOs (If the reset pin is disabled, otherwise has 5).

Another thing about these cores is that they can be programmed with the arduino IDE and you can find out more about it here. http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=1695

You can read about them here. http://www.atmel.ca/devices/ATTINY85.aspx.
