Can a A-Star 32U4 Micro program an ATTINY44A-PU

I have the need to program an Atmel ATTINY44A-PU MCU, I do know the Arduino can work as a programmer, But could I use the A-Star 32U4 as my programmer because it is so similar to the A-Star.



Although we have not tried it yet, you should be able to use the A-Star to program an ATtiny44A by following the steps in this Arduino tutorial. As noted in the tutorial, for boards like the A-Star that do not have the SPI pins indicated, you will have to use the ISP connector for the SPI connections.
