The ATtiny45 and 85 are a couple of really cool little MCUs but did you know you can program them in Arduino? That’s right, now you can shrink your Arduino projects down to “tiny size” by moving your code straight over to these small but capable ICs. The standard method for programming the ATtiny ICs involves a breadboard, lots of jumper wires and a hardware programmer, but David Mellis over at MIT Media Lab has simplified the process by laying out this handy USB programmer.

The Tiny AVR Programmer plugs directly into your USB port and provides a programming socket for the ATTiny45 and 85. Just slot an ATtiny into the socket, plug the programmer into your USB port and start up the Arduino IDE. After installing the proper board definitions, you simply program it the same way you would any other Arduino board. The programmer even breaks out the IC pins to female headers so you can easily prototype around the ATtiny without pulling and plugging it over and over. There are two ISP headers that have also been broken out so you can use the programmer of solder in a 6-pin header for other AVR microcontrollers!

Note: You’ll need to install the USBTinyISP drivers if you don’t have them yet, you can find them in the documents below!

    This is a fantastic device. I have two of them. Works perfectly on Ubuntu, and I have used it for ATtiny25 programming and I have soldered in and used the ISP Pins. I have had the odd integrity issue on Windows with the 25, but this may be a driver issue or the machine used. Watch out for the breakout sockets, I recommend the "Solderless Breadboard Jumper Cable Wires (75 Pieces) CE00301" as other choices are too thick, and keep them straight. You do not want to snap off a component lead in one of these as it is like spiking a cannon. It just works. Used with Arduino and Eclipse with AVR plugins. Does not have an HVP function. Does have LED_BUILTIN on 0. Fairly long but still very compact. (Posted on 24/10/2017)
