Adafruit Trinket 5V/16MHz


Platform Atmel AVR: Atmel AVR 8-bit MCUs deliver a unique combination of performance, power efficiency and design flexibility. Optimized to speed time to market-and easily adapt to new ones-they are based on the industry’s most code-efficient architecture for C and assembly programming

Microcontroller ATTINY85
Frequency 16MHz
Flash 8KB
RAM 512B
Vendor Adafruit


Please use trinket5 ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = atmelavr
board = trinket5

You can override default Adafruit Trinket 5V/16MHz settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest trinket5.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = atmelavr
board = trinket5

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = attiny85

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 16000000L


PIO Unified Debugger currently does not support Adafruit Trinket 5V/16MHz board.
