From the lm_sensors page:
This site also hosts the Linux I2C project files; I2C packages and the I2C 
Subversion server access are available on our download page.

But anyway, i'll delete these parts.

Oops, that's true.

You won't even be able to program it the first time. So yes, you'll need 
either someone with the necessary hardware or someone willing to sell you a 
preprogrammed cpu. Both shouldn't be too hard to find.

As always: You won't need any firmware updates as long as the device works for 
you. I e.g. installed the depicted prototype in my servers enclosure which 
was the primary reason for building it. It's already outdated, but it works 
well as a temperature sensor and i will not update it soon. Nor will i 
install the latest i2c-tiny-usb driver.

I don't know. I will do this at very low quantity which means that the pcb 
will be quite expensive. I hope to be able to offer the set (pcb and cpu) for 
EUR 10. But i am not sure about that.
