    ATtiny: Soft Serial

    Using software serial library on an ATtiny to send serial via FTDI over USB (or bluetooth) for communication to computer. Useful for debugging!

    // software serial example for ATtiny!

    #include

    SoftwareSerial mySerial(0, 1); // RX, TX

    void setup()
    {
    // set the data rate for the SoftwareSerial port
    mySerial.begin(4800);
    mySerial.println(“Hello, world?”);
    pinMode(3, INPUT_PULLUP);
    }

    void loop() // run over and over
    {
    int sensorValue = analogRead(3);
    mySerial.println(sensorValue);
    }

      This is great, but could you do one on getting I2C working when using the arduino IDE to program an ATtiny2313 please?
