Paperduino Tiny

Build Arduino compatible board on piece of paper

Paperduino Tiny is very cheap and easy to build Arduino compatible board with USB and software compatible with Digispark board.

Paperduino Tiny include an ATtiny85 microcontroller and come with USB interface. Coding is similar to Arduino, and it use the familiar Arduino IDE for development.

This project is supported by and you can also visit our other project Electra I - modular electronics education KIT.

Can be build in 1 hour for aprox. 4 USD.

Support for the Arduino IDE 1.0+ (OSX/Win/Linux)
Power via USB or External Source - 5V
Built-in USB (and serial debugging)
6 I/O Pins (2 are used for USB only if your program actively communicates over USB, otherwise you can use all 6 even if you are programming via USB)
8k Flash Memory (about 6k after bootloader)
I2C and SPI (vis USI)
PWM on 3 pins (more possible with Software PWM)
ADC on 4 pins
Power LED and Test/Status LED (on Pin1)

Contacts and FAQ

I got lot of questions by email last days.
There is short FAQ:
Q: Are you able to send me ready to use Paperduino Tiny ?
A: No, try to build one by your self.

Q: Are you able to send me ATtiny85 with preprogrammed bootloader ?
A: No,No, i'm sorry not selling MCUs anymore.

Q: Are you able to send me complete KIT for Paperduino Tiny ?
A: No, i'm sorry not selling KITs anymore.
