ATtiny Microcontrollers (and how bigger isn't always better)

I spent a little time today learning how to program the ATtiny13 microcontroller. I’m not sure how I ended up with a few of these chips (the ATtiny85 seems more popular), but they’ve been in my parts bin for awhile and I’ve never gotten around to playing with them until today. 1,643 more words

Versatile ATtiny Programming Adapter

Lucky Resistor designed this programming adapter for ATtiny13 and similar chips:

A Versatile ATtiny Programming Adapter

As mentioned in my article about designing a cheap plant watering sensor, I built a small adapter which can be used to pre-program the ATtiny13A.

Another project that’s been on hold for a very long time because I did not really need to finish it….

It’s a balanced two-in/two-out passive switch box which I intend to use partly to add an additional input to a spare amp, and partly to build a more comprehensive test setup for comparisons of sources and amps. 178 more words
