Homemade Hardware - Week 1: Breadboard ATtiny85

This week we use Arduino UNO as ISP to breadboard an ATtiny85

 

Test the photocell

Choose photocell as the sensor to control an LED, test it as with Arduino UNO

 

 

Wire the ATtiny85 as the pinout diagram

 

Get the Arduino set as ISP

Find the code example of Arduino ISP and upload it to Arduino UNO

Install ATtiny Package, change the setting and burn the Bootloader

Highlight Here: Programmer: Arduino as ISP (not ArduinoISP)

the original programmer: AVRISP mkII
