If you liked our Helvetiny85 Kit but thought that one or two more GPIO pins would have been nice, famous maker dinoi has a solution for you with his new Helvetiny84 kit based on the ATtiny84.
The Helvetiny84 is a microcontroller kit based on the ATtiny84 with a software USB implementation through the Micronucleus bootloader. The micronucleus bootloader allows you to program this board easily over USB with the Arduino IDE, even so the ATtiny84 has actually no real USB interface. The Reset button allows to upload sketches without disconnecting and re-plugging the board.
This kit is built exclusively using THT components so that even beginners will have no problem assembling it within a few minutes. All pins of the ATtiny84 are broken out to 0.1" headers, plus two addtional pins with GND and Vin.
The kit also includes a matching mini prototyping shield with all needed headers. The mini prototyping shield has 32 Flowerpads for your own small circuitry. We really like the Flowerpads as they allow you to easily mount THT as well as SMD components in the prototyping area.
Note: The kit comes with all components needed to assemble the board as 3.3V or 5V version, please check the assembly instructions and decide first which version you would like to build!
Note: The Helvetiny84 comes as kit and needs to be soldered first. You should have a solder iron, some solder and a few other tools needed like a diagonal or flush cutter.
