The Paperduino Tiny

Following in the footsteps of the original Paperduino—and the Paperduino Leonardo—is the Paperduino Tiny. It’s a cheap Arduino-compatible board based around the ATtiny85 micro-controller, and you can probably put it together for around US$4. The difference? As you might have guessed from the name, it’s made of paper.

More information can be found on the Paperduino Wiki—including step-by-step instructions, and a full parts list.

Specifications

  • 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)

    Paperduino, Arduino yang dirakit diatas kertas, microcontroller memakai ATTiny85 8-pin. ATTiny85 ini murah, sekitar 25-35ribu rupiah, dengan 8 KB Flash memory.

    Dimana ya USB Controllernya? Hmm, menurut saya USB Controller ditangani microcontroller, dengan catatan bootloader sudah di-burn ke ATTiny85. Tak yakin, masih perlu diteliti lagi.
