tinyLCD_I2C

Description:

tinyLCD_I2C is a Firmware for LCD I2C backpack based on ATtiny84 with an Arduino library as drop-in replacment for the LiquidCrystal library.

Instructions

Please make sure to use the TinyWireS library from this repo with the ATtiny implementation from http://code.google.com/p/arduino-tiny/

Also you should make the following change in ./hardware/tiny/cores/tiny/wiring.c to improve performance of the TinyWireS library:

{
  sei();
  // copy these to local variables so they can be stored in registers
  // (volatile variables must be read from memory on every access)

Basically add the line

  sei();

to the ISR(MILLISTIMER_OVF_vect) function so that it looks like above excerpt.

See http://forum.boxtec.ch/index.php/topic,2225.msg2845.html#msg2845 for a discussion on this issue.

Boards / PCBs

The boards directory contains a Fritzing THT design on which current development is based and an Eagle 6.x SMD design which is currently in production for first prototypes.
