Description: The LilyTiny is a tiny little LilyPad board designed to add flashy functionality to your project without taking up a lot of room. Even though it’s as small as some of the LilyPad sensors, this board actually has an ATtiny microcontroller on it so it’s actually pretty smart! Simply sew on 4 LEDs and connect a battery and the LEDs will each blink or fade differently. One will blink on and off (2), another will flash a heartbeat pattern (1), another will do a “breathing” fade (0) and the other will do a random fade (3). LilyTiny is a quick and easy way to add twinkling lights to a project without any programming or a bulky Main Board. It’s also a great educational tool for showing a range of functionality without having to get out the computers.
If you’re an advanced user and want to re-program the LilyTiny, the ICSP programming connectors are broken out on the back.
LilyPad is a wearable e-textile technology developed by Leah Buechley and cooperatively designed by Leah and SparkFun. Each LilyPad was creatively designed to have large connecting pads to allow them to be sewn into clothing. Various input, output, power, and sensor boards are available.
Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles.

I’ve learned the LilyTiny is a great little programmable chip, to me it’s a mini-Arduino. I’ve used it in an Instructables.com project to make a Blinky LED Baseball Cap. It is possibly the smallest form-factor for a Blinky LED circuit. Now I program the Tiny myself, and I use it to control the NeoPixel rings from Adafruit. I also use the LilyTwinkle. I do feel there needs to be one more version, which I call a “LilyBlinky” which would have BlinkyBlinky capability, perhaps 1 sec on Ports 0/1 and 0.5 sec on Ports 2/3.,,probably beats a 555 Timer based BlinkyBlinky for compactness. I may put this on Instructables.com, but it’s just public Domain code.
Bought some of these to do some custom thank you cards. Used the Pogo ISP programmer to reprogram it with an Arduino. Works as expected!
These things are nice! Perfect size and power for some of my projects. I’ve got it hooked up to a ULN2003 and a 7805 regulator powering 12v RGB LEDs and it works flawlessly. Highly recommended, especially since they are so inexpensive.
