Arduino – Shrink your Arduino project


Sometimes when we’re making some projects with our Arduino and we want to make them permanent It would be a waste to use an Atmega328 chip with so many pins if we’re just using a few. This can be a solution for you to save some money and shrink your Arduino projects to a 8-pin ATtiny chip. You can see the video of this project, but I really recommend to read this article for more information.

I’ve never tried this method before, some people say that this don’t work or they can be just making some mistake without noticing. I’ve already read lots of complains. But anyway I just ordered some ATtiny IC’s so when they arrive I’ll try them and see by myself if this works.

Thanks for reading, leave a comment or send me an email. If you like this post probably you might like my next ones, so please support me by subscribing my blog and my Facebook page (you can find everything right column )
