- ATtiny and components attached in link
- 3V coin battery
- Lego pieces
I’ve always wanted to make small electronic bugs – and surprised by how tiny the ATtiny was, I aimed to make the circuit as small as possible!
I started off by designing the characters with lego pieces I had on hand then designed the rest of the components around them.
I then started preparing for each part (unfortunately had to cut out the silicone plan due to limited time)
The jig from class works perfectly.
Again, due to limited time I was only be able to finish one. The soldering and layout on the perfboard took much longer than I’d imagined (most likely because I was very focused on making it tiny!).
Also, the pushbutton of the finished piece broke last minute and I was unable to debug it!
- Plan the wirings well, test everything!
- Design and measure everything!
Through the assignment I believe I have a much better sense of the prototyping process and will try to manage the time better next time.
