I am trying to get into the world of micro controllers.
Having purchased an ATTiny85 and USBasp from eBay along with creating a development board, i believe I am ready to go with the basics.
The Arduino IDE v1.8.3 is installed along with the USBasp drivers for my Windows 7 machine.
I plan on using the Arduino IDE to program the ATTiny85 however my USBasp isn't recognised in the IDE?
When i try to burn the boot loader I am told the USBasp is not available. Checking the device info it turns out I have a USBasp from Protostack Prt Ltd
Googling most of last night has arrived me at the conclusion that people use AVRdude instead to program this USBasp.
Is it possible to get it to work in the Arduino IDE? If so how do I get to do so?
Thanks in advance for any help!
