Attiny13 & Arduino1.0.3 & USBtunyISP 2.0

by fox4egx on Mon Jan 28, 2013 10:14 am


I'm trying to program a ATtiny13 with Arduino 1.0.3, but unfortunately what I do, I still have a problem.

I am looking for the correct files for the ATtiny13, and how to place them in the directory so that it is recognized by Arduino1.0.3 (and compiles without errors)

The link under the picture that explains how, no longer exists or is not correct ... sbtinyisp/

Is there a tutorial?
thank you

There is a tutorial for the USBTinyISP here:

I don't believe you can use Arduino to build a sketch for the ATtiny13, since Arduino does not contain any support for that chip. You probably want to look into using Atmel Studio 6. You would then program the ATtiny13 using avrdude and the USBTinyISP.

The picture you refer to was not talking about using Arduino for programming. The author of the blog post was probably using WinAVR or some other command-line tool which supports ATtiny13 programming.
