Model Identification

Two models are being shipped. They have no feature differences, only a different connection for the on-board LED.

You can identify your model by the presence of “rev2” on the top (the side with the gold connectors) of the USB end of the Digispark.

If “rev2” is not present then you have a Model B board. If “rev2” is present then you have a Model A board.

Model A: The on-board LED is connected to P1 This board should cause no conflicts with any devices, but rmember the LED is on pin 1 not pin 0!

Model B: The on-board LED is connected to P0 This board requires the trace to the LED to be cut (or the LED desoldered) if you'd like to use it with I2C devices.

We recommend using an exact-o knife or similar small sharp blade. The area that needs to be scored or cut is outlined with a white box on the board - highlighted in red below for clarity.

To reconnect the LED for non I2C use, one can solder across the white box from the led to the closest pin of the IC.
