This is the original Tinusaur Board – the kit that has the Tinusaur PCB and all the necessary components for the ATtiny85 micro-controller to work.

Tinusaur Board Parts

IMPORTANT: Please note that:

  • It comes as a kit, in parts, all in a small plastic bag, you have to solder it yourself.
  • In order to program this microcontroller board you will need a programmer and what we recommend is the AVR ISP programmer. We prefer using the USBasp because of its simplicity, reliability, last but not the least – its affordable price.

Another option is to use an Arduino to program the ATtiny microcontroller. There are good articles on the Internet about how to do that, here are just a few: Programming an ATtiny w/ Arduino 0022Program an ATtiny with Arduino.

Our recommendation …

There is also the Tinusaur Starter – another kit we produce that has everything included in the Tinusaur Board plus a USBasp programmer, plus few other useful things. Check its page for more details.
