Using a Leostick as an ATtiny ISP programmer

Post by lawsy » Thu Oct 04, 2012 3:28 am

I am buying a bunch of ATtiny85s (8pin microcontroller that still run Arduino code) after seeing this tutorial:

I will need to program them using an ISP programmer. Using an Uno or Eleven to do this is quite well documented:

I would like to use a Leostick to do the same thing, and can't see any reason it won't work. I will follow this guide:

If it works on the breadboard, I have a spare protostick ready to mount an 8 pin socket and permanently wire up the pins as needed. The end result will be a Leostick version of this:

If anyone can see any potential problems, please post them up.

Otherwise I will reply in this thread with details once it is working.

This looks awesome. If this works for you, please reply here. I'm extremely interested in doing this for myself.
