How to Install and Program any Customized board with Arduino IDE- Arduino Compatible boards only

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


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.


Open the Arduino IDE, & go to tools->board, Now you will see the many option for Arduino Boards. like we our Nutty ATmel Atmega328 Board, it is recommended to select “Arduino/Genuino Uno” as shows in image.

After it, this is programmer for arduino.

Connect FTDI/ CH340 programmer to your Customized board.

But be careful, you need to connect it properly as per shown below. if you connect it wrongly, then it can harm your customized board as well as your computer.

Now, go to the Tools->Port-> and select the com port as COM3.

Note: If you don’t know how to install FTDI programmer to Arduino IDE, then visit to to our another post that will show you how to install it .

Write your first program:

Copy & paste below program to your Arduino IDE.


Builtin led has connected to 13no pin of Arduino. but we need to connect external led on Customized board



void setup() {
// initialize digital pin LED_BUILTIN as an output.
Serial.println(“Welcome to Nutty’s ATmel ATmega328 Firmware”);

// the loop function runs over and over again forever
void loop() {
digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH); // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
Serial.println(“Led High”);
delay(500); // wait for a second
digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW); // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
Serial.println(“Led Low”);
delay(500); // wait for a second

and click on the upload button to upload the program .

Now, you connect led to 13 no pin (as per the Arduino pins ) of your customized board and it will start blinking.

This is how you can test your customized board.
