The Compact ATtiny Breadboard Headers

If you have to spending endless times to start prototyping with an AVR ATtiny, then you can make it becoming easier. Yep, all you need to do is build the headers that can carry the 8 and 20 pin chips, where it can be plugged directly into breadboards. Technically, these controller boards are building to provide a quick start for projects with 8 and 20 pin AVR microcontrollers, such as ATtiny13, ATtiny45 and ATtiny2313. Since they didn’t include any fancy stuff, and they keep it as simple as possible. By using this cute yet compact ATtiny breadboard headers, the Arduino projects becoming much easier. As you can see from the above figure, this little breadboard headers is very handy, where it occupy only one more row on each side as a controller would need. This breadboard headers already included the following components: 6 pin ISP header; 8 MHz resonator; Reset …
