Does it work with the ATtiny861A

Postby rkagerer » Mon Aug 12, 2019 1:01 pm

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm not sure how similar my chip is to the ATtiny2313. Will the circuit and code for this project work with my ATtiny861A?

Note I think my chip doesn't support high voltage serial programming, just normal serial and high voltage parallel. I want to try the latter as my chip seems to be bricked. Also note the BS2 pin is shared with XA1, and the BS1 pin is shared with PAGEL.

It looks like the ATtiny861A uses a slightly different pinout for HVPP. As a result, the existing sketch won't work without modification.

Did you purchase a kit? If so, email your order details to and let's work together on getting this working for you.
