Gday Stephen,

Thanks for this design & post, fits exactly with what I need to do at work, and the parts in the 'odds bin' that I have at work,
Cheers! Hope youre doing ok

Hello Greg,

Thanks for the feedback. It's always nice to know when people find this stuff useful.

I'm doing well thanks. BTW are you the same Greg that I used to go to school with in Camberwell?

It seems like you're exploring different microcontroller options, particularly the ATtiny2313 AVR and the ESP8266 WiFi microcontroller. Both have distinct features and are suited for different types of projects:

ATtiny2313 AVR Microcontroller:

Overview: Known for simplicity and low power consumption.
Programming: Uses the Arduino IDE or Atmel Studio with appropriate tools.
Capabilities: Limited GPIO pins but good for basic embedded systems and sensor interfacing.
ESP8266 WiFi Microcontroller:

Overview: Integrated WiFi capability, ideal for IoT projects requiring internet connectivity.
Programming: Arduino IDE with ESP8266 board support package.
Capabilities: Supports WiFi communication along with GPIO, SPI, I2C, and UART.
Choosing between the two depends on your project requirements:

ATtiny2313 is great for projects where low power consumption and simplicity are crucial, but it lacks WiFi connectivity.
ESP8266 excels in projects needing WiFi connectivity, such as IoT applications and remote monitoring.
If you have specific project ideas or need further guidance on which microcontroller would be best suited for your application, feel free to share more details!
