Hello all, I want to get serious with Atmel, Arduino's good for prototyping but I just don't always need the pin count.
One application is to simulate the bright blue flickering of an arc welder in a 1/76 scale model or 1/87 for our american cousins, an atmega 328 would be overkill for this project which only requires generating random delays to turn a led on and off.
So I'm looking at an 8 pin attiny, trouble is there are so many variations, I'm more used to microchip pic's so am lost in the relm of attiny's, I don't need adc, comparators, pwm or anything fancy, so whats a good 8 pin chip to start off with? And can i use my atmega 328 to ICSP it?
Thanks in advance
