The Digistump Digispark is an Arduino compatible development board the size of a postage stamp. It’s based on the ATTINY85-20SU Atmel AVR. Compared to the ATMEGA328, the micro-controller used in the Arduino UNO, the physically much smaller ATTINY85-20SU has just a quarter of the flash memory and almost a quarter of the I/O pins. Just about 6 kB of flash memory is available for user loaded sketches as a little over 2 kB is taken by the Micronucleus Tiny85 bootloader. Digistump warns that Loading bootloaders is not supported at this time and can result in damaged devices.

Specifications
