Power requirements are 2A @ 5VDC. 2 AMPS? Is that right? I'm guessing it only draws that much when it is doing heavy processing? What about standby current? I was hoping on making something portable and battery powered.

Like Krb686, I can't get the Tiny Programmer to work.
I followed all the instructions on how to install it on Window (32-bit), installed the drivers via Windows Device Manager, and Windows now recognizes the programmer as "LibUSB-Win32 Devices->USBtinyISP AVR Programmer".
I also am running the Arduino 1.0.3 environment, and have installed the attiny files into the Arduino\hardware\attiny folder, and the Arduino Environment shows all the different types of ATtinys under Tools->Board.
I'm tried several different brand-new ATtiny85's, but all give the following error when I try and program them:
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
My Arduino environment works fine programming several Arduino UNO's and Arduino Pro Mini 328's (using the FTDI Basic Breakout).
Can anyone figure out what I am doing wrong?
No public wish lists :(
