Adafruit Trinket - Mini Microcontroller - 3.3V Logic
Trinket may be small, but do not be fooled by its size! it's a tiny microcontroller board, built around the Atmel ATtiny85, a little chip with a lot of power. We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don't want to give up your expensive dev-board and you aren't willing to take apart the project you worked so hard to design. it's our lowest-cost arduino-IDE programmable board!
The Attiny85 is a fun processor because despite being so small, it has 8K of flash, and 5 I/O pins, including analog inputs and PWM 'analog' outputs. We designed a USB bootloader so you can plug it into any computer and reprogram it over a USB port just like an Arduino. In fact we even made some simple modifications to the Arduino IDE so that it works like a mini-Arduino board. You can't stack a big shield on it but for many small amp; simple projects the Trinket will be your go-to platform.
This is the 3V Trinket. There are two versions of the Trinket. One is 3V and one is 5V. Both work the same, but have different operating logic voltages. Use the 3V one to interface with sensors and devices that need 3V logic, or when you want to power it off of a LiPo battery. The 3V version should only run at 8 MHz. Use the 5V one for sensors and components that can use or require 5V logic. The 5V version can run at 8 MHz or at 16MHz by setting the software-set clock frequency.
Even though you can program Trinket using the Arduino IDE, it's not a fully 100% Arduino-compatible. There are some things you trade off for such a small and low cost microcontroller!
Trinket does not have a Serial port connection for debugging so the serial port monitor will not be able to send/receive data
Some computers' USB v3 ports don't recognize the Trinket's bootloader. Simply use a USB v2 port or a USB hub in between
Trinket is not supported on Linux operating system at this time - try Mac OS or Windows!
ATtiny85 on-board, 8K of flash, 512 byte of SRAM, 512 bytes of EEPROM
Internal oscillator runs at 8MHz, but can be doubled in software for 16MHz
USB bootloader with a nice LED indicator looks just like a USBtinyISP so you can program it with AVRdude (with a simple config modification) and/or the Arduino IDE (with a few simple config modifications)
Mini-USB jack for power and/or USB uploading, you can put it in a box or tape it up and use any USB cable for when you want to reprogram.
We really worked hard on the bootloader process to make it rugged and foolproof, this board wont up and die on you in the middle of a project!
~5.25K bytes available for use (2.75K taken for the bootloader)
Available in both 3V and 5V flavors
On-board 3.3V or 5.0V power regulator with 150mA output capabilityand ultra-low dropout. Up to 16V input, reverse-polarity protection, thermal and current-limit protection.
Power with either USB or external output (such as a battery) - it'll automatically switch over
On-board green power LED and red pin #1 LED
Reset button for entering the bootloader or restarting the program. No need to unplug/replug the board every time you want to reset or update!
5 GPIO - 2 shared with the USB interface. The 3 independent IO pins have 1 analog input and 2 PWM output as well. The 2 shared IO pins have 2 more analog inputs and one more PWM output.
Hardware I2C / SPI capability for breakout amp; sensor interfacing.
Simple but effective - this sewable breakout board has a CR2032 coin cell battery holder soldered on, an on/off switch and 0.1" pitch breakout pins for easy connecting. Great for powering very low-current projects, or adding a battery backup circuit to a real-time-clock or similar. There\'s two ground pins, one \'switched\' power pin, and one pin that is...
This is a very common 10nF capacitor. Used on all sorts of applications to decouple ICs from power supplies. 0.1" spaced leads make this a perfect candidate for breadboarding and perf boarding. Rated at 50V.
The Digispark is an Attiny85 based microcontroller development board similar to the Arduino line, only cheaper, smaller, and a bit less powerful. With a whole host of shields to extend its functionality and the ability to use the familiar Arduino IDE the Digispark is a great way to jump into electronics, or perfect for when an Arduino is too big or too...
A vibration motor! This itty-bitty, shaftless vibratory motor is perfect for non-audible indicators. Use in any number of applications to indicate to the wearer when a status has changed. All moving parts are protected within the housing. With a 2-3.6V operating range, these units shake crazily at 3V. Once anchored to a PCB or within a pocket, the unit...
This \'full-size\' breadboard with 830 tie points is perfect for small and medium projects. it\'s 2.2" x 7" (5.4cm x 16.5cm) with a standard double-strip (630pts) in the middle and two power rails (200pts) on both sides. You can pull the power rails off easily to make the breadboard as thin as 1.4" (3.5cm). You can also "snap" these breadboards...
This is an incredibly simple two cell 18650 Battery Holder. When someone thinks of 18650 Cells they tend to think of flashlights first, which is fair since that is what they have been primarily used for. HoWe\'ver, with this battery holder you will gain the ability to incorporate 18650 cells into applications like robotics or prototyping by simply...
This is a cute half size breadboard which has 400 tie-points, is great for small projects. it\'s 2.2" x 3.4" (5.5cm x 8.2cm) with a standard double-strip (300pts) in the middle and two power rails (100pts) on both sides. You can pull the power rails off easily to make the breadboard as thin as 1.4" (3.5cm) and stick it onto your Raspberry Pi. You...
You\'re too cool for I2C, and SPI has so many wires, 8-bit parallel... how can that be fashionable!? You are a 1-Wire kinda gal, and you want more 1-Wire breakouts in your life to complement all of your great engineering. Well rock on, because here you go, it\'s a 1-Wire controller with two open-drain GPIO.
This is a very simple, clear infrared LED. These devices operate between 940-950nm and work well for generic IR systems including remote control and touch-less object sensing. Pair them with any of our IR receivers (see Related Items below). 1.5VDC forward voltage and 50mA max forward current
If you\'ve ever tried to connect a 3.3V device to a 5V system, you know what a challenge it can be. The SparkFun logic level converter is a small device that safely steps down 5V signals to 3.3V and steps up 3.3V to 5V. This level converter also works with 2.8V and 1.8V devices. Each level converter has the capability of converting 4 pins on the high side...
