For my raspberry pi based car-radio project I need some attiny chips to interface the radio controlls. Today I made a simple adapter for my programmer. I soldered an 8 pin chipholder and a 20 pin chipholder to an ISP connector. Now I can programm ATTiny 45 and ATTiny 2313 chips without having to hook up the ISP adapter to my breadboard
Today I worked on the RGB led that is going to replace the small lamp that lights the display of my rapspberry pi based car radio for cheri´s VW type 3 wilson
I used an attiny 2313 to control the led. I will interface the microcontroller with I2C and connect the 5 buttons tomorrow

For my Raspberry PI based car-radio that lives in the housing of a blaupunkt radio from the sixties I needed to interface a variable resistor from my pi. Unfortunately the rapsberry pi has no ADC for the GPIO pins so I added a small ATTiny running the arduino-tiny firmware to read the analog values. The ATTiny is programmed as a I2C slave and is accessed in the same way as the radio part of the project.
you can find a tutorial on how to install and run the arduino-tiny firmware here
and you can find the I2C slave library for the attiny chips here
