WEEK 07 // Programming
This week, I used the FabISP that I made earlier in the semester to program my Tiny44 board. I found the tutorial at the Fab Academy to be extremely helpful.
My first attempt to program the board failed. My FabISP seemed to be working correctly from Arduino, but the LED on the Tiny refused to light up. Upon further review, I found that I had actually missed one of the solder connections. When I fixed that, it fired right up!
I modified the code so that the LED had an asymmetrical blinking pattern.
Next I attempted to push the echo.c program to my board, again through Arduino. I was able to enter all the information that I needed into the terminal, but was unable to get the program to work until I found out I was using the wrong port in Arduino.
