Hi 

I am a newbie to ATTiny85 and AVR, I would like to understand the ATTiny fully from architecture to programming can you recommend some good material for it ?

 

First I want to understand the

1.AVR terminolgies needed for programming ATtiny 85

2. Sufficient knowledge of internal of ATTiny85 to do programming and debugging

 

I am not able to get this from the ATtiny use manual give ATMEL

 

Regards

Girish

Wrong forum.  Moved to mega/Tiny

Tell what you cannot "get" from the datasheet, plus the referenced documents including "AVR Instruction Set" http://www.atmel.com/images/doc0...

 

Then tell where you looked for the information you desire.  Nothing in the Tutorials forum on this Web site? Nothing in the many thousands of Web sites containing Atmel AVR information?

 

What language do you intend to use?  If assembler then go to www.avrbeginners.net .  Great AVR information.

 

If you are experienced in microcontroller architecture, then the dtasheet should be enough.  If not experienced in microcontroller architecture--then what is the purpose of your low-level search?

 

Perhaps give a few specific questions.

Do not limit yourself to the tiny85 or even tinys in general. The vast majority of 8 bit AVRs have essentially the same architecture (the exception in some ways are the xmegas). And could you explain why you chose the tiny85 in the first place?

Personally I enjoyed the youtube tutorials of human harddrive about avr-c: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=... You may want to skip a few, depending on what you already know. He's using a atmega328, but as Koshchi already mentioned they're extremely similar. Note that you don't need a crystal on your tiny. Also you'll have to look up stuff in the datasheet to make it work on your attiny, so it's an easy way to get comfortable with that. Other than that you can look for arduino tutorials, many use sketch files, so you may want to write your own code instead, and look stuff up in the datasheet.
