The new ATtiny102/104 MCUs run up to 12MIPS and integrate features previously only available in larger more expensive MCUs, making them ideal for smaller applications including logic replacement and the latest cost-optimized applications in the consumer, industrial and home automation markets.

The majority of today’s 8-bit market growth is coming from applications that previously only required discrete components. With many of these new applications requiring simple intelligent functions including timing, motor control or on/off functionality, 8-bit MCUs are becoming an essential feature for the personal healthcare, small kitchen appliance and consumer markets.

The ATtiny102/104 8-bit AVRs provide all the necessary features to help spur the growth in these applications with its small, cost-optimized low-pincount package with just 1kB of Flash memory.

Integrated features include self-programming for firmware upgrades; non-volatile data storage; accurate internal oscillator to provide more reliable motor control; high-speed serial communication with USART; operating voltages ranging from 1.8V to 5.5V, 10-bit ADC with internal voltage references; and sleep currents at less than 100nA in power down mode with SRAM retention.


- 1kB Flash / 32bytes SRAM

- 8- and 14-pin packages down to 2mm x 3mm in size

- Up to 12 MIPS at 12MHz

- Self-programmable Flash

- Accurate (±3%) Internal oscillator

- Multiple calibrated internal voltage references (1.1V, 2.2V, 4.3V)

- 10-bytes Unique ID (serial number)


- 10 bit ADC and analog comparator

- 1.8V to 5.5V voltage range

- -40°C to +105°C and -40°C to +125°C temperature ranges
