I have used the instructions on High-Low Tech Group for programming at attiny85 using my arduino uno. After some hoops (read downloading the latest versions of everything, and using the 1mhz board) I was able to get the tiny to accept the blink program.
However, when I run the chip from my 9v battery the LOW setting still leaves the light on. It’s dimmer than the HIGH setting on the output, but definately not off. I’m doing this as an art project, and maybe bit off more than I could chew. I took electronics… like 15 years ago, and have only been playing with this stuff for about 2 days.
Anyone want to give me a nudge in the right direction? Why does the blink not turn off when powered on my 9v?
This video is where I got my starting instructions (before I downloaded latest everything) But it gives you an idea what I’m trying to accomplish.
