Arduino for other Chips
The Arduino IDE can be configured to program a variety of microcontrollers, not just the ones found on the standard Arduino boards. However, while this capability is possible for many other chips, not all have been documented. This page contains links for configuring the Arduino IDE to program other microcontrollers.
- Adding Third Party Boards to the Arduino v1.6.4+ IDE - Boards Manager makes it easy to add support for other hardware to Arduino.
- Unofficial list of 3rd party boards support urls - These URLs are used for easy installation with the Arduino IDE 1.6.4+ Boards Manager.
- ATtiny44/45/84/85 Recommended'
- ATtiny 25/45/85, 24/44/84, 261/461/861, 48/88, 2313/4313, 87/167 & ATtiny 441/841, 1634, 828
