After a large capacity of orders of the ATtinyShield and the great feedback I've had for some time, I wanted to explain the full specs of the shield. Simple yet powefull, small yet sufficient...
So here it is... an explaination digramm about the structure of the ATtinyShield.
ATTINYSHIELD on EBAY…
Check my Ebay listing with over 1500 views and 100 board sold for only 9.90$.
Thanks a lot for all your support.

The whole programming procedure of transfering a sketch from Arduino to an ATtiny85, can be shown here on a short video I made.
The full guide with all the nessecary steps can be found in my previous post.

LCD’s are projects most common output method. We can display any sensor’s value, print information alerts on screen, or even scroll big messages.
Also, a screen for setting up parameters, or generally having a visual of your project status, is always useful.

An RGB Led has two variations. The Common Anode and the Common Cathode. Both of them have 4 pins, 3 of them are the three colors Red, Green and Blue and 1 is the common pin.

Arduino projects are very popular but also big and expensive. There are many times that we don’t need so many input or output pins. As a matter of fact, most projects could be accomplished with only 2 or 3 inputs and outputs. Besides the size, using one Arduino board for each small project can be costly.

|ATtinyShield - easy Arduino programming|
In my project I have added an indicator LED on pin 9 of the Arduino that shows that the programmer is running properly and a reset tact switch for the ATtiny85.
So by creating a small shield with all these connections, it’s easy to plug it on our Arduino and worry only about the programming stuff. This is what ATtinyShield is doing for us.
If you want to buy this shield check, my EBay listing:You will get:
- The shield with printed and already etched PCB with color silkscreen on it, and of course the components soldered on it. It will be fully functionable ready to program.
- An Attiny85 20PU chip for your first experiments.
- A detailed printed (and pdf) guide (in color) for the connections and the whole programming procedure.
- The RGB-Tiny board, a small PCB with RGB Led, controlled by an ATtiny85 for your first experiments. With code provided you will be able to fade the Led to all colours or any other programming you want.
