This tutorial will teach you how to install download, install, and testing the Arduino software( Arduino IDE) & then how to install Nutty ATmel ATmega328 Board to Arduino Software.
Now, talk about primary requirements. You need
- A PC/ Laptop (Windows, Mac, or Linux)
- Nutty ATmel ATmega328 Baord
- USB to UART Converter
- USB Interfacing cable
Download the Arduino Software from arduino official site & scroll down. you will see the arduino downloading option. click on “Window Installer, for window XP and up” as shown in image below. Now arduino software will start download.
After download, install the arduino software.
Now, go to folder where you install the arduino software as like shown default location in image (it can be differ as depend on where you install the arduino software).
Click & Open the the “hardware” folder. you will see the folder “arduino”. Delete this folder.
Now, you have to download ATmel ATemga328 package to install on Arduino IDE. Click here to download the package. After download you will see the folder name “arduino”. Right click on arduino folder & click on “Extract to arduino” as shown in figure.
After extracting, you will get a folder name “arduino“. Copy this folder & paste it to the location as shown in image.
It’s done . Nutty ATmel ATmega328 Board has been installed at Arduino Software.
Now close & reopen the arduino software. Now go to tools->board->NuttyATmel ATmega328 & that’s it.
write your first program:
Connect the Nutty ATmel ATmega328 Board with FTDI USB to UART converter (to install ftdi converter in your computer visit this link. )
Launch he Arduino IDE go to File->Examples-> 1.Basic-> Blink, open the blink example & upload the example code to Nutty’s ATmel ATmega328 board.
