- Open Source Firmware (available at GitHub)
- Open Source Hardware: Eagle PCB design files available at GitHub.
- On-board ISP header for upgrading firmware
The Akafugu LED Candle uses an ATTiny13A microcontroller. The firmware is written for the avr-gcc compiler.
See here for avr-gcc installation instructions.
Plug in ISP programmer into the ISP header, and in the directory 'firmware', do:
