 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Dear all,

Recently I am planning to use attiny 85 powered by a CR2032 coin cell battery to light up some LEDs randomly. I tried to connect them but it seems that the LEDs is actually not that bright.

Any problems/solutions ?

Have you had your Arduino fix today?

use a smaller resistor - or a step up converter to 5V

you may even do with a coupe of germanium diodes and capacitors.. Use two outputs to make AC

Recently I am planning to use attiny 85 powered by a CR2032 coin cell battery to light up some LEDs randomly. I tried to connect them but it seems that the LEDs is actually not that bright.

A CR2032 has very limited current capability, maybe only 4mA.

a) You won't need a resistor with the LED when you're on battery power.

b) You'll need to reduce the current used by the Tiny85, this makes more available for the LED.

Disable all the parts of the chip that you aren't using, especially the analogue parts.  Functions for doing this are here: http://www.nongnu.org/avr-libc/user-manual/group__avr__power.html

See the section on "power management" in the datasheet for more info (also the "Supply Current of I/O modules" section, under "22. Typical Characteristics").

No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)
