Arduino High Voltage Programmer / Eraser for ATtiny

License: GPL v3

Based on Recover Bricked ATtiny Using Arduino as high voltage programmer This program restores the default fuse settings of the ATtiny and can perform a chip erase & lock bits reset. The fuses can then easily be changed with the programmer you use for uploading your program.

Modified for easy use with Nano board on a breadboard

  • Added option to press button instead of sending character to start programming
  • Improved serial output information
  • After programming the internal LED blinks
  • Added timeout for reading data
  • Allow Serial command input
  • Added readout of lockbits
  • Added Chip Erase

Installation

Just copy the content of the HVProgrammer.cpp file into a new Arduino sketch and run it.

In the Arduino serial monitor with baudrate 115200 you will see something like:

START C:\...\ArduinoSketches\sketch_jun15a\sketch_jun15a.ino
Version 3.2 from Jun 15 2019

Enter 'r' to only read fuses and lock bits...
Enter 'e' to erase flash and lock bits...
Enter 'w' or any other character or press button at pin 6 to to write fuses to default...

and after button press or sending a character you see
