This board holds an AVR ATtiny3217 microcontroller, providing access to all of the IO pins. It adds power supply decoupling capacitors, an LED, a button, and UPDI programming header to make a convenient self-contained development board for small microcontroller projects.
The LED is attached to the
PA7 pin via a 2k2 current-limiting resistor.
The button is attached to the
UPDI/RESET# pin via a series resistor to prevent damage in case of drive contention. Note that the
PA0 pin defaults to UPDI mode. Switching the pin to RESET mode will require the use of a 12V-capable UPDI programmer if you want to program the chip after this.
The board also provides a programming header in the AVR standard 2x3 layout. Note that this will requires a UPDI-capable programmer. An SPI-style ISP programmer will not work with this chip.
Finally, an extra 2-pin header is provided with another VCC and GND pin in case additional connections are required.
Reference icons are placed next to the pins used by the USART, I²C, SPI, and DAC modules, and where the LED is connected, to remind you what functions those pins usually perform.
This board is supplied with two 12 pin header strips for the IO pins and one 2x3 pin for the programming connector.
The ATtiny3217 is one of the new AVR 1-series microcontrollers, containing xmega-style peripherals. These are more powerful and flexible than previous generations of ATmega and ATtiny chips.
This particular chip contains 32 KiB of flash and 2 KiB of RAM on an AVR CPU clocked at 20 MHz. It provides two 16bit and two 12bit PWM-capable timers, a 16bit realtime counter, a USART with fractional baud rate generator, a master/slave capable SPI interface, I²C interface, analog comparator, two 10bit ADCs, three 8bit DACs and in total 22 IO pins split across three ports. It also provides a 6-channel event system and configurable custom logic block that can route events between peripherals without waking the CPU.

I wanted to experiment with the new AVR 1-series chips, but couldn't find any maker-oriented hardware for them.
I believe this may be the first use of an ATtiny3217, outside of the development boards produced by Microchip themselves.
