Thank you Rob,

I don't have an example to show how easy it is, but on the product page you can download a manual that tells how to do it (and it is easy).

The steps are:
- Upload a sketch to your Arduino that makes it an ISP
- Insert ATtiny (or other supported processor) into the TinyShield and insert TinyShield into your Arduino
- Open an exisiting Sketch that can work with ATtiny (think pin compatibility, the manual uses the blink example)
- Select ATtiny w/Arduino as ISP from the boards menu in Arduino IDE
- Upload your Sketch

The 20 boards that we have prepared are not stackable, but if you want one (or more) that are stackable, I think we can make them and you could burn probably, let's say, 4 at once. We haven't tried it.

Thanks for the heads up on Jonathan's site!

Dank je wel!
2  Development / Other Hardware Development / TinyShield - An All-In-One programmer shield for Arduino on: January 13, 2012, 10:13:48 am
A couple of months ago I found a story on Hackaday (and later on other places too) about programming ATtiny processors through Arduino. I thought that it would be nice to have this in a form of a shield. Now this product has become reality and it does even more than programming ATtiny processors. A collobaration between Flyton and myself resulted in a shield that makes it possible to program ATtiny45/85 processors, various Atmel ATmega processors (168/328/44/48) and it can even be used as a STK-500 programmer.



For more information see: http://flytron.com/open-source-hardwares/162-tinyshield-all-in-one-avr-programmer-shield-for-arduino.html

Looking forward to hear what you think!

Quote from: Rick Kimball
For using Arduino as ISP, I need to disable Auto Reset capabilities. Therefore I inserted 110 ohms (330 ohms / 3) resistor between Reset-pin and 5V-pin. This resistor should be above 110 ohms and below 124 in accordance with this document: DisablingAutoResetOnSerialConnection.

Is it correct that this resistor goes between +5V (from Arduino pin with 5V) and reset pin on ATTiny?

I am missing out on replies to really great threads because of this. Anyone can have a look at this?

Moderators? Owners? Please, I would be very grateful!

It seems I am not getting email notifications for new post to threads. At least to say, this is unreliably working.

I just send an email to the Benelux Mailing list and it returned with a ´quota exceeded´ error.

There used to be a BeNeLux mailing list. Not sure if it still exists, I haven´t been receiving any mails for over almost 2 years.

If you have a subscription to a thread here on the forums and new replies to the thread are added by people, you get an email with a notification for the new posting.

The subject for that email always is ´topic reply´. I think that is a pretty general text and would love to see this change to something like:
Arduino forums - topic reply: <thread-subject>

One advantage is that it is much more easy to browse to your email and find the email and thread subject you are looking for.

I solved my problems, I made an error with ground connection...

After adding these rows in programmers.txt I can burn bootloaders and sketches from within Arduino-0010:
stk200.name=STK200
stk200.communication=usb
stk200.protocol=stk200


Thanks Cheater, I just need to be more careful with mixing up ground and power pins... Luckily, it didn't hurt my Arduino...

I also ran into various problems using a STK200. I bought this one on eBay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ATMEL-AVR-ISP-Programmer-For-Parallel-Port-STK-200-300_W0QQitemZ190143362817QQihZ009QQcategoryZ4661QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

It comes with a 10-pin header, so I made a 10-pin to 6-pin cable with the information I got from this image (from LadyAda.net)


Yesterday afternoon, I had my first try getting this combo to work, I used uisp. I was able to burn a bootloader, but not able to program any sketches from within the IDE. After burning the Arduino bootloader, there was no blinking light too. I also could program .hex files created from within the IDE. For example, I tried the blinking led and it worked.

Last night I tried again and this time it was the other way. I was not able to burn bootloader, but I was able to burn sketches from within the IDE. The problem was that as soon as I connected the stk-200 to the ICSP on the Arduino and powered up the Arduino (through external adapter or through USB from computer), the Arduino wouldn't power up. Removing the ICSP connector of the STK200, Arduino powered up again.

I don't know what to do now!

I hope someone here can help me out!

Oh, but I don't need an EEE PC to work with Arduino while sitting on my sofa. A 'normal' laptop works fine, is my experience!
