Smallest DIP Arduino Compatible MCU?

I was thinking about doing a small LED based circuit that would have a couple of dimming and blinking options. However, I don't think I'm interested in soldering up a 28-pin DIP to accomplish this task.

Microchip's PIC (dare I bring up that name) has several "small" DIP chips, with as little as 8-pin configurations. They aren't that powerful, but they weren't meant to be.

Does anyone know if a small 8-16 pin Atmel chip exists that might fit into that category?

Thanks.

ATtiny85

I guess it couldn't get too much more obvious than that. AT_Tiny_.

I was just under the impression that it was only available in surface mount. After a quick Google search, I have been proven wrong. Well, I presume its not using the official bootloader. Which one is it then? Hmm...here I come Google.

Is the port functional?

I don't think macsimski ever published a core. At least I could never find one.

The core from saposoft (Alessandro Saporetti) works well with a few limitions: I think the analog read is commented-out. There's no Serial. Two PWM pins are supported but three could be. How to use it and a link to the core are here... http://hlt.media.mit.edu/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.ArduinoATtiny4585

I'm about finished getting his core Arduino 0019 compatible (meaning Serial, tone, and analog read are available). When it's ready, I'll post to the Exhibition forum and publish the source code here... http://code.google.com/p/arduino-tiny/

Nope. For a while this Summer the DIPs were plentiful. For small applications, the '85 and '84 processors are a nice alternative to the '168 / '328 processor.

I don't know if anyone finished a bootloader for it. SuperCow was working on one but I don't know if he's published. In my case, I'm using a Pololu USB AVR Programmer. I know at least one person uses a high-voltage programmer with the '85 processor.

Thanks. I wish you luck with the port. It probably won't be a while until I actually try using a Tiny so take your time. ;D

But I am actually quite interested in using one of them because the 168s and 328s are pretty big in comparison to a nice 8 pin Op-Amp form factor Tiny.
