@n3ro Are you using Arduino IDE? if yes, you should have it, otherwise you dont have options to select board within arduino IDE.
[TIPS] battery powered sensors
@funky81 i use the normal IDE for windows (installed version). i have found the boards txt in the no-install version of it in “\arduino-1.6.4\hardware\arduino\avr”
i have testes the installed version, no-install and nightly. i have only found the boards.txt in the no-install version of the IDE in “\hardware\arduino\avr”.
After editing the boards.txt and adding hex file i cant see the new 1mhz board in the ide…
i dont know whats wrong.
could somebody upload a configured no-install version to sharehoster?
now i have tested a little bit.
I can only select the 1 mhz arduino if the boards.txt is placed in Documents\Arduino\Hardware\HexBright\avr.
But when selecting “burn bootloader” i get this message:
cant find tool avrdude
i think now its working. but i dont know if the bootloader is working know. is is possible to read the cpu clock with a sketch?
@sweebee OK i can upload the sketch but the serial output looks very ugly:

I cant receive anything On the serial port with 1mhz
@sweebee Here are the files to use the Arduino IDE with 1 Mhz:
I put this in C:\Users%userprofile%\Documents\Arduino\Hardware
In another thread (http://forum.pimatic.org/topic/182/show-your-hardware/20) you showed your attiny controlled RF PIR. First of all, thank you very much for sharing your code!
I have received my first attinys yesterday and played around with them a little bit and also tested your code. I want to use it for an RF PIR with batteries but as you say, running it at 1MHz would save battery life, I can’t get it running on that speed. In that thread there is another guy with exact the same issue. I also get similar signals when I run it at 1MHz. Running it at 8MHz does what it should do.
Can you give me some hints what I can do to get it working at 1MHz?
@A-Ko For me it worked fine, try to burn the bootloader when 1Mhz is selected. Normally it should work. But i also tested 8Mhz and it worked fine on 1.8V
I burned the two different bootloaders before testing of course. Does the ATTiny need to have lower Voltage when set to 1MHz or doesn’t it matter? I am thinking about running it with two or three parallel connected CMOS batteries.
I have received my first two nrf24l01 transceiver yesterday. Would it somehow be possible to combine the homeduino and the serial-gateway sketch of mysensors into one so just one nano is needed.
Atmel advises to run 1mhz when the voltage is lower than 2.4v but i tested 8mhz On 1.8v and it should work fine.
Some developers already tried, but the sketch would be to Large to fit On a nano.
I am trying to build your 1MHz pro mini.
I was able to born your boot-loader with Arduino Uno as ISP.
Unfortunately I can not upload any code to my Pro Mini 3.3v anymore!? (programmer not responding…)
You probably had the same Issue, can you give me a hint how to solve.
With my FTDI I can upload code to new ProMini 3.3v 8MHz,
but I can not upload to the board with the brand new 1MHz bootloader flashed.
Do you flash it with the 1mhz settings?
I build an battery powered sensor with dht22 and an nano clone.
Works fine. So far…
Its only for testing with the nano, later I will replace it with an attiny.
I´ve written some lines for measuring voltage of batteries but I cant get the information in pimatic and I can see with serial monitor in IDE that the voltage is measured.
I took rf-generic as sensortype.
How can I display the measured voltage in mV?
