How-To: Shrinkify Your Arduino Projects

If you have a simple Arduino project that uses only a few pins, you might be able to shrink it down to a single 8-pin ATtiny chip. In this video, Matt Richardson shows you how, based on a tutorial from MIT Media Lab’s High-Low Tech Group. The best part is you can use the same Arduino code and development environment that you’re already used to.

  1. “the negative side …
    “the negative side must go to ground”. connects it with the negative side to the reset? pin. fail?

  2. error can’t do it. …
    error can’t do it. so annoying. problem: ‘A1 was not? declared in this scope.’

  3. @mavnova because A1 …
    @mavnova because A1 as you call it is actually? pin 2 so it would be pinMode(2,OUTPUT);

  4. Only noobs use …
    Only noobs use premade Arduino boards. Expensive and big. Get an AVR? STK programmer and make your own boards

  5. great video, I had …
    great video, I had a problem after doing some research I find out that the lates arduino software Version 1 does not play well with this? method.
    so I use arduino .22 and it worked out of the box.

    thanks for great video.

  6. How do I use the …
    How do I use the analog? inputs as outputs ?

    I tried,

    pinMode(A1,OUTPUT);

    but I get the error,
    ‘A1’ was not declared in this scope.

  7. @ukeleleboy97 the …
    @ukeleleboy97 the netduino? is not, but i was wondering since they almost have the same pin configuration and also most of the arduino shields work with it.

  8. Awesome project, …
    Awesome project, this can save too much money. A MCU with 8 pins and? Analog In?, wow, this is crazy, I need get a lot of these MCUs

  9. One thing I do? not …
    One thing I do? not understand is who you can be so cheerful all the time…

    It is a little creepy..

  10. Thanks! I think i …
    Thanks! I think i am going to? go with the duemilanove just for the extra inputs and also because I see it around more 🙂

  11. @DarkRaven118666 I …
    @DarkRaven118666 I have the duemilanove and found it good for small? beginner projects with room for a few intermediate projects as well.

  12. hey that small …
    hey that small is eeprom or what is it ??? it seems to be tiny? arduino pic 85 . arent it ???

  13. @DarkRaven118666 …
    @DarkRaven118666 Go? straight to the mega, either mega would do.
    It offers the best of all worlds, and you won’t be limited by pins.
    The mega’s have tons of pins to tinker with.
