I have many projects which I was originally intending to be run by an Arduino. The problem: these projects use very few I/O pins/program space and even the smallest/cheapest Arduino boards (i looked at cheap chinese knockoffs of the Arduino mini) are too big and expensive. This chip has perfectly fit my needs!
I used this MCU in a project to mimic a device in Left 4 Dead/Left 4 Dead 2 for a Zombie Crawl.
Worked like a charm, and using the AVR Programmer made it easy.
just look at it; sitting there next to that giant quarter. being all…programmable…and stuff. AVR programmer required. Other than that, it’ll do simple tasks on the cheap.
there is a hiden world beside the arduino main stream, you can personalise it ! A BIT hard for begginners trough… I love it !
A problem with many microcontrollers are that they are big. they have too many i/o pins and features while in reality all you may want to do is simply control a few things. It is a waste.
This ATtiny however is as the name suggests tiny. it is meant for small projects and cases where space is a premium. perfect for small projects where you just need it to blink a few leds and such
My latest project involving a ATtiny is a tiny robotic line-follower using a few sensors and 2 tiny motors. Im making the design in the theme of a mouse
