I have a (yet another) clock breadboarded up, and would like to transfer it to a smaller, less expensive Arduino for the build.  I see that the Pro Trinket is not in the Board list, and wondered if anyone had tried it.  The Pro Trinket has the USB port, the Pro Mini does not.

 

Also, thank you to the people who wrote the compiler and the libraries.  I've worked with the NeoPixel VIs, the RTC VIs, the LCD VIs, and the Servo VIs.  They all just work.  What a great set of tools!

 

(also, the Adafruit Chronodot RTC works fine for me with the DS1307 VIs)

Looks like you will have to follow some steps to add the Pro Trinket board to the Arduino IDE.  Once you do that it should be available in the Arduino Compatible Compiler for LabVIEW.  It looks like it should work fine as its very similar to the Pro Mini, which we have successfully used before.  But it looks like even thought the Trinket has a USB port, it does not work as a serial port and you need to add the external FTDI converter as with the Pro Mini.  See here.  Looks like the on board USB port is for their own USB bootloader.

You're right!  I see no real benefit to getting a Pro Trinket over a Pro Mini.  I'll want an FTDI cable either way.  I might as well stay with what has already been successfully used.

Thank you, Steffan.
