Learn to program the ATtiny85 from your Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

instructables user prb3333 posted this useful tutorial on programming the ATtiny85 with your Pi.

These instructions tell you how to setup and program the ATtiny85 microcontroller from a Raspberry Pi via the SPI interface. Lots of people use the Ardiuno to do this (then you can use the Arduino IDE and simplified C commands), or you can use a USB based programmer. I do not have an Ardiuno and don’t want to buy a dedicated programmer. I do have a Pi, so I was pleased to learn I could use it as a way to get into microcontroller programming.

You will need:

  • Raspberry Pi
  • ATtiny85 chip
  • 5 x 1K resistors (or similar)
  • LED of your choice
  • A connection to the GPIO of the Pi, and a breadboard and wire.

See the full tutorial here.
