Eighth week and the classes continue to surprise me, every week there is something really new and above all complex for me, this time we continue with the part that for me is the most difficult of all, electronics, here I will show you a little of everything I did.
This week I have worked in greater depth the theoretical part because unfortunately the machine has had problems to perform new work, however I have generated a research on my components and circuits that I have been designing.
This week we have to read a microcontroller data sheet and program our board to do something, thanks to all the research and exploration of my components I achieved the goal, join me to see how I did it.
Since on my board I have been using the ATtiny 85 I choose to make the explanation about this microcontroller, it was the only one I got in Lima so I adapted to it. To start knowing about it first it is important to know where they come from and who manufacture them so I will talk about Microchip, "Microchip is a well known company in the maker and DIY world, as it has a lot of products to create projects. It is famous for its programmable microcontrollers for all kinds of applications. Among its range of microcontroller products is the ATtiny85, a very practical MCU that you will want to use in your future work. In addition, you should know that Digispark also has boards or modules that integrate this ATtiny85 with some extra elements that are needed to start programming this device, such as the serial interface connection to pass the code to the memory of the device. Its low cost, tiny size, and compatibility with Arduino boards, make this board a good option." (Source)
