How to install and program a DigiSpark dev board?

CheckItOut Blog   •   June 3, 2016

The DigiSpark family of ATtiny85 boards are great for projects that don’t require a lot of input and output.

But unlike the Arduino UNO they can be hard to connect and program.  The reason for this is that the DigiSpark shares some pin with the USB connection.

I have received a lot of emails from users asking why it doesn’t work when they try to connect the DigiSpark to program it.

So in this video I will go Step by Step on how to install the drivers properly and also what to expect when you are connecting the board using USB to program it.
