Consider that ATmega328P chips cost less than $5 and have internal clock up to 8 MHz. All these chips can run and do something with only power and I/O.

Just one source of many:

Caveat, Arduino UNO uses one Atmega328P of many, to use others with the Arduino IDE requires changing some file data as told in some forum threads so ask or find the changes before buying.

Here is in-progress Playground article on standalone:

Here is programming ATtiny chips with Arduino. Note that bigger chips can be programmed much the same:

Here is Youtube showing How-to do that:


And while not perfected, this one is pretty fantastic and the maker (a member here) has a great site!


Hope this adds focus to clarity.
