This breakout board is a "three in one" product:
We primarily designed this board for our own use: it's a mini dev board that lets us design with the ATtiny817 just like we did for the ATSAMD09. With the 2021 silicon shortage, we're adapting some of our SAMD09 designs to the ATTiny8xx series and wanted a quick minimal board to test code on.
Each breakout comes with the assembled and tested board, as well as some header strips. Each PCB is fairly minimal and contains:
This board comes pre-programmed with seesaw peripheral code that will let it act as an "I2C to something" converter, basically a little I2C-controlled friend to do all the timing-sensitive things many microcontrollers and microcomputers are not good at.
For example, using this breakout with the pre-burned seesaw firmware gives you
Of course you can configure or reprogram the chip to however you want to use it - we like using SpenceKonde's megaTinyCore which brings Arduino peripheral support to this series of chips. To program the chip you will need a 'UPDI' programmer, which you can make with a USB-to-Serial cable and a single 4.7K or 10K resistor.
Please note: The boards do not come with a bootloader. If you want to do development on seesaw (e.g. changing the configuration) you need a separate UPDI programming setup! The firmware we put on is available as this example sketch, compiled using the megaTinyCore. We don't provide any support for custom builds of seesaw - we think this is cool and useful for the Maker community!
