mass producing flashed ATTINY85's

by cag on Wed Jan 30, 2013 4:57 pm

I've got a design that I need to replicate in large-ish batches. Currently I have to flash all the tiny's before mounting them in my PCB. How does one go about getting a bunch of them flashed in bulk? Is there a service that does that?

My choices now, as I move to SMD - are to build programming ports into the PCB, or make some sort of jig to bulk flash a bunch at once prior to mounting (I'm doing that currently with through-hole). Figure there's got to be a better way.

THANKS!
Andy

we suggest having the ISP header broken out so after its soldered you can flash the chip using a USBTiny or similar - pogo pins work great for this!
