Small is beautiful – and that’s especially true of the Adafruit Pro Trinket 5V development board. Coming in at a tiny 38mm x 18mm x 2mm (1.5″ x 0.7″ x 0.2″) (without headers), it gives you easy access to the ATtiny85 MCU for development and programming. Thanks to its size, you can slip this board into pretty much any prototype.
It’s powerful beyond its size too – the Pro Trinket features Microchipâ€™s ATtiny85 MCU with 8KB program flash, 20 MIPS CPU, 5 PWMs, 2 8 bit timers, and it uses the Atmel ATmega328P microcontroller, 28K of flash, 2K of RAM and 18 GPIO.
You can easily programme the Pro Trinket with the AVRdude and/or the Arduino IDE. There’s even a reset button for entering the bootloader or restarting the program, plus LED signals for bootloading. And, for a serial connection, you can also use an FTDI cable to connect to the FTDI port.
This Pro Trinket development kit is the more powerful version of the Trinket (RS 124-5509, 124-5506) with around four times the perfo
