Arduino for other Atmel Chips
The Arduino IDE can be configured to program a variety of AVR microcontrollers, not just the Atmega328. 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, namely the ATtiny series.
