The Attiny85 Kickstarter USB Development Board is a microcontroller board based on the Atmel ATtiny85. The ATtiny85 is a low-power, high-performance 8-bit microcontroller with 8 KB of flash memory and 512 bytes of SRAM. The board includes a built-in USB-to-serial converter, which allows it to be programmed and communicated with directly from a computer via USB. The Attiny85 Kickstarter USB Development Board is ideal for small and compact projects, such as wearable electronics, where space and power consumption are critical factors. It also includes a range of I/O pins, making it easy to interface with sensors, actuators, and other components. The board is commonly used for DIY electronics projects, hobbyist inventions, and educational purposes.

The Digispark Attiny85 Kickstarter USB board is originally developed by the company Digistump. It comes with an integrated USB connector for programming and power supply and can operate with an external power supply of 6-35VDC. It has several different I/O options (programmable), like 6 digital I/O, 4 analog inputs, or 3 PWM outputs. Our Attiny85 board is 100% compatible with Arduino IDE after installing the required driver package.*

The Digispark is an Attiny85-based microcontroller development board similar to the Arduino line, only cheaper, smaller, and a bit less powerful. The Digispark is shipped fully assembled except for the two included and easy-to-solder headers.


  • Support for the Arduino IDE 1.0+ (OSX/Win/Linux) *
  • Power via USB or External Source – 5v or 7-35v (12v or less recommended, automatic selection)
  • On-board 500ma 5V Regulator
  • Built-in USB
  • 6 I/O Pins (2 are used for USB only if your program actively communicates over USB, otherwise you can use all 6 even if you are programming via USB)
  • 8k Flash Memory (about 6k after bootloader)
  • I2C and SPI (vis USI)
  • PWM on 3 pins (more possible with Software PWM)
  • ADC on 4 pins
  • Power LED and Test/Status LED


To get started, it is crucial to read and follow the instructions on the Digistump Wiki! This is NOT a regular Arduino board, natively supported by the Arduino IDE. It requires some different procedures to use its virtual USB port for programming with the Arduino IDE.
