I do NOT want to start a fight with you, Coding Badly, but with the help of my tutorial on instructables you can program many AVR MCUs.


@alah did not ask about "many AVR MCUs".  He asked a specific question about two specific tiny processors.

When @alah has his tools in place, your tutorial will make an excellent starting point.

There are other core files out there other than the ones from Coding Badly and Mark Sproul (witch are used in my instructable), so choose the ones you think are the best.


If you had taken the few seconds necessary to follow the link I posted you would have found that the opening page of the website includes a list of cores appropriate for tiny processors including Mark Sproul's core.

I use Mark's because they have support for many different MCUs, not only ATtinys.


His core is incomplete for tiny processors.  There are much better choices available.

I meant more generaly.

I have already taken some time to look at your site, but I don't think if I need to repost the links.

I must say you are right with that, but the way Marks core files (and the new with that the new ones released with the new IDE) are made on register basis, meaning it's easier to add more MCUs. Can be that your core files are that too, but I haven't looked at them more than with a glance.

OK Coding Badly, florinc and JanD:
First of all, THANKS.
As a newbie, I´ll need to start with small and simple projects like flashing two LEDs with two buttons to START and STOP ( I know it can be done with just one button ).
So that´s only 3 or 4 I/O pins. Speed isn´t any problem at this time, 10 MHz is fine.
I´m going through JanD´s instructable and I can get an ATMega88V.
I´m following ITP PhysicalComputing ´s instructions, so hopefully I should have my LED blinking by next week! I´ll let You know how I´m doing. Thanks again, Alberto .
