Someone was asking in another thread about writing to the flash of an attiny20. It can'd do it but on the product page I noticed a section for "Similar Devices". That section shows the following as "similar" to the cheap, 14pin 2K flash micro....

 

 

So anyone fancy replacing their $1, 2K micro with a $10 one that has 64 pins ??

 

What is the point of a "Similar Devices" list if it doesn't try to parametrically match the device in question?

Oh I see, the list appears to the same whatever AVR you happen to choose. I would say that they are "similar" only in the sense that they are just all the AVRs except that the list begins with 8051s ?!?

 

Truly, it is nonsense.

"similar" in that all the part numbers begin with "AT" ... ?

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
