AVR programming trick: Sharing target boards

AVR programming trick: Sharing target boards @ Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories

This week, Brad wrote in with an interesting question: Can you program the ATtiny25 on one of our ‘tiny2313 target boards? And the answer is yes: you can, with just a trivial modification.

Okay, back up– a little context here. The ATtiny25 and the ATtiny2313 are examples of AVR microcontrollers, the little brains that power many of our projects.

To program these chips, we use a usbtinyisp programmer, hooked up to a minimalist target board


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. This article seems to be incomplete. Says, yes you can with a trivial mod, but doesn’t explain the mod. Is it the single green wire shown or is there more to it? Thanks!

  2. @paul — this is an excerpt. If you click on the link immediately before the excerpt, you get the full article from evilmadscientist.com.
