The MH-ET LIVE Tiny8(16.0Mhz) based microntroler devlopment board simlar to the Arduino line, only cheaper, smaler,and a bit less powerful. With the abilty to use the familar Aduino IDE the MH-ET LIVE Tiny8(16.0Mhz) is a great board to jump into elctronics, or perfct for when a other board is to big or to much. The MH-ET LIVE Tiny8(16.0Mhz) is shiped fuly asembled except for the headers include and easy to slder them byourself.

- Power via USB or External Source - 5v or 7-35v (12v or les recomende, automatic selction)
- On-board 50ma 5V Regulator
- Built-in USB
- 26 I/O Pins (2 are used for USB only if your pogram actively comunicates over
USB, otherwise you can use al 6 evn if you are progaming via USB)
- 8k Flash Memory (about 6k after botloader)
- I2C and SPI
- 26-PWM (26 pins with Software PWM,only two(D9,10) withardware PWM )
- ADC on 8 pins
- Power LED and Test/Satus LED
If using Arduino 1.6.6 or higher and windows - you will need to download and install the drivers manually. Download, unzip and run “Install Drivers” (on 32bit systems) or “DPInst64” (on 64bit systems). The driver files are located here: https://github.com/MHEtLive/MHEtLiveArduino/releases/download/1.0.0/2.0a4.rar
Install or Unzip the Arduino application.
Run the Arduino application.
In the Arduino application go to the “File” menu and select “Preferences”,In the box labeled “Additional Boards Manager URLs” enter: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MHEtLive/arduino-boards-index/master/package_mhetlive_index.json and click OK;
Go to the “Tools” menu and then the “Board” submenu - select “Boards Manager” and then from the type drop down select “Contributed”:
Select the “MH-ET LIVE Boards” package and click the “Install” button.
You'll see the download progress on the bottom bar of the “Boards Manager” window, when complete it will show “Installed” next to that item on the list.
WINDOWS USERS: When complete the install with pop up a Driver Install Wizard window, please click “Next” on this Window to install the drivers for MH-ET LIVE Boards (If you already have them installed, this installer will update them and install any that are missing).
With the install complete, close the “Boards Manager” window and select the MH-ET LIVE Boards “MH-ET LIVE Tiny88(16.0Mhz)” from the Tools→Boards menu.
Choose the example that comes with the Arduino IDE: Select the development board as MH-ET LIVE Tiny88 in the toolbar, open the program in File >> Example >> Basic>>Blink, change the port 13 in the program to 0. Port, compile and download into the MH-ET LIVE Tiny88(16.0Mhz) according to the above method, it can be seen that the onboard LED light flashes according to the frequency specified by the program.(note: When downloading the program, do not connect the module first, wait for the prompt to insert the module after compiling, then plug it in and wait for the automatic download to complete).
