||W07 - Arduino as a "gateway drug"
||The Arduino can do a lot, but sometimes you don't need to do that much. In many cases, it's simpler (and more economical) to use a smaller microcontroller such as the ATtiny series rather than the full Arduino platform. Fortunately, the same user-friendly Arduino IDE can be used to program these smaller microcontrollers: in fact, you can use the Arduino as the programmer. In this short workshop I'll demonstrate how to do this, and show some of the uses we've found for ATtiny microcontrollers in our upper-division labs.
