#Arduino-Tiny Arduino-Tiny is an open source set of ATtiny "cores" for the Arduino platform.
The Arduino platform currently supports Atmel ATmega processors. There is a need for the Arduino platform to work with physically smaller DIP package processors. The intent of this project is fulfill that need. Specifically, our goal is to provide a core that enables Arduino users to work with the ATtiny84 (84/44/24), ATtiny85 (85/45/25), and ATtiny2313 processors.

#How is this different from other mirrors?
This version has tailored
boards file to leverage new ui possibilities of
^1.6 release of Arduino IDE, namely dynamic menus, thus reducing amount of new entries in board menu, yet still providing all options.
Ensure the Arduino IDE is NOT running.
Download the Arduino-Tiny archive (ZIP-file).
Locate the Arduino Sketchbook folder. This is the folder where the Arduino IDE stores Sketches.
Ensure the "hardware" folder exists under the Arduino Sketchbook folder. For example, if the Arduino Sketchbook folder is
Ensure this folder exists
Extract the contents of the archive into the "hardware" folder. For example, if the Arduino Sketchbook folder is
After extracting, the following files / folders should exist...
C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\license.txt C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\platform.txt C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\Prospective Boards.txt C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\README C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\bootloaders\ C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\cores\
The following folder should contain the source files for the Arduino-Tiny core...
Create a new file named "boards.txt" in the tiny\avr directory. Following from the examples above, the file would be here...
Start the Arduino IDE and ensure the new boards of interest are listed under the Tools▶Board menu...
ATtiny84 ATtiny85 …
Under Tools▶Clock you are presented with various setting for internal and external clock for each chip
8 MHz (internal oscillator; BOD disabled) 1 MHz (internal oscillator; BOD disabled) …
to set new clocking on a a chip it is required to Tools▶Burn Bootloader once
You are now ready to use Arduino-Tiny!
##CREDITS Arduino is an open source project, supported by many.
The Arduino team is composed of Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, Gianluca Martino, and David A. Mellis.
Arduino uses the GNU avr-gcc toolchain, avrdude, avr-libc, and code from Processing and Wiring.
Arduino-Tiny is based on work by David A. Mellis, René Bohne, R. Wiersma, Alessandro Saporetti, and Brian Cook.
