ATtiny24/44/84 Datasheet, Pinout, Minimal Circuit, Maximum Frequency Calculator

The ATtiny24/44/84 have 12 programmable I/O pins, and run off of an internal 8MHz RC oscillator. They have no USART for serial communication, but provide a USI block which can be used as a USART in a pinch. 8 ADC channels and 2 timers are included as well.

The ATtinyx4 has several clock options, including an internal clock that runs at 128kHz, or an RC clock that runs 8MHz along with a divide by 8 fuse. The maximum frequency is 20MHz with an external crystal. The default is 8MHz divided by 8, or 1MHz. The fuse sets the divisor at reset time - you can change the divisor programmatically at any time.

Power Supply vs. Maximum Frequency

The maximum clock frequency is dependent on the power supply voltage, and the calculator below can help you determine the maximum clock frequency at any power supply voltage.
