The ATtiny45 and 85 are a couple of really cool little MCUs but did you know you can program them in Arduino? That’s right, now you can shrink your Arduino projects down to “tiny size” by moving your code straight over to these small but capable ICs. The standard method for programming the ATtiny ICs involves a breadboard, lots of jumper wires and a hardware programmer, but David Mellis over at MIT Media Lab has simplified the process by laying out this handy USB programmer.
The Tiny AVR Programmer plugs directly into your USB port and provides a programming socket for the ATTiny45 and 85. Just slot an ATtiny into the socket, plug the programmer into your USB port and start up the Arduino IDE. After installing the proper board definitions, you simply program it the same way you would any other Arduino board. The programmer even breaks out the IC pins to female headers so you can easily prototype around the ATtiny without pulling and plugging it over and over. There are two ISP headers that have also been broken out so you can use the programmer of solder in a 6-pin header for other AVR microcontrollers!
Note: You’ll need to install the USBTinyISP drivers if you don’t have them yet, you can find them in the documents section.

Question & Answer
Q: why this programmer is so expensive. it's about 7x cost then a Attiny85. is there any low price tiny programmer exist. if so, then please leave here a reply. I'll check it later. Questioned by Almahmudrony, 01-Oct-2017
Q: Good product. Works fine with arduino IDE but can not use it with Atmel studio. It says "avrdude: programmer not supported".Any seggestions please.? Questioned by zuhaer, 12-Mar-2018
Please try avrdudess. Answered by A.R, 13-Mar-2018 03:39 AM
Q: Can I program a regular mini pro with it? I found 6 pins at the end just like the FTDI breakout. I am a bit confused if it can do the job or not. Questioned by Faiyad, 05-May-2018
No you can't. And that is not FTDI. Please find the schematic and eagle files of the product in the documents tab. Answered by A.R, 06-May-2018 05:08 AM
