This is really cool. I am trying to get into AVR microcontrollers, and to learn how to program too. I'm still a beginner though. I already have a programmer though. http://ladyada.net/make/usbtinyisp/index.html
I'd like to attempt to make one of these. Mainly for learning purposes.
First, I'd like to know what AVR's I should buy. I'd like to try this with DIP style type first, as I've never worked with surface mount devices, and not much electronics in general.
I was thinking of either ATtiny45V-10PU or ATtiny45-20PU. I'm not sure whether the 10 mhz or 20 mhz is needed. I don't think it matters, since you set the fuses, but i have no idea. Would either the ATtiny85V-10PU or ATtiny85-20PU work too?
Second, I'd like some sort of help with how to set the fuses. I've never done it before. I'm using avrdude if that helps. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
