Antuino

January 1012

A cheap alternative for lightweight Arduino projects using an Atmel ATTiny44 and making use of the MIT high-low tech programming ATTiny with Arduino 1.0 to allow the use of the arduino development environment.

Called an Antuino because of their ant like appearance, the Antuino is designed to be used with a breadboard for experimenting/prototyping.
The board contains the minimum of components: ATTiny44, de-coupling capacitor, resistor and power LED (confirms the programmer cable is correctly plugged in). A single wire link is required to connect the ATTiny Vcc pin to the programming connectors Vcc. When used in conjunction with a USBASP programmer this makes for a low cost development platform.
