This printed circuit board is perfect for quickly getting your next Atmel ATtiny26 microcontroller project running. An ATtiny26 is already installed to reduce the time you spend on the grunt work and increase the time available for designing your custom project (the bare PCB is also available).

The Atmel ATtiny26 prototyping printed circuit board is perfect for quickly getting your next
Atmel ATtiny26 microcontroller project
going. The circuit board includes all connections and footprints for an
LP2950 voltage regulator, resonator or crystal, reset circuit, power jack and switch, RS-232 level converter with DB9 connector, and 10-pin in-circuit
programming header. All of the power and I/O lines are brought out to the edge of the prototyping area for easy access. The picture to the right
shows a board with all optional components populated.
To save space and get you running even quicker, the main microcontroller
(ATtiny26-16SU) and supporting circuitry are assembled with surface-mount packages. The optional RS-232 circuitry, reset pushbutton switch, resonator or crystal, power jack and switch, and in-circuit programming header can all be populated with through-hole components. The bare
PC board without the surface-mount components already assembled is also available.
The prototyping grid has pads connected in pairs and triplets for easy circuit
building in configurations similar to those you would use on a solderless
breadboard. Five longer bus lines simplify distribution of nets with many
connections, such as power and ground lines. All of the prototyping grid
connections are routed on the bottom layer of the board so that they can
easily be cut if necessary, and all of the connections are clearly indicated
on the white silkscreen on the top side. The grid can hold up to two 40-pin
DIP packages and two 20-pin DIP packages or up to eight 20-pin DIP packages.
