We've itching to get the chance to play with the Adafruit Trinket, which is a tiny microcontroller that is only 3 cm by 1.5 cm (1 inch by 0.5 inch). We were playing around with our little Piezo speakers and thought it would be fun to drive one with a Trinket.
It turns out that this is very easy to do!
0) We soldered the header pins to the Trinket
1) We found a sketch on Pastebin with the Star Wars Imperial March song. Somebody took the time to record all the frequencies needed to play that song, and we are grateful to them.
3) We modified the code from Pastebin to use Pins 1 and 2 from the Trinket. Pin 1 maps to the built-in LED and Pin 2 is how we drove the speaker
4) We scrounged up a mini-USB cord and tried to upload the sketch. It turns out that the Trinket doesn't like USB 3.0 in some cases, so after a few tries we ran it through a USB 2.0 hub. Be sure to tap the bootloader button on the Trinket prior to trying to upload the sketch.
It was that easy! Here is a video of the result.
