Flashing the firmware on the device
Getting some Arduino UART programmer and debugger
They may look like:
Attention! If the programmer supports a voltage selector 3.3V and 5.0V you have to set it to 3.3V!
Power the device
Connecting a power supply with a board Power input. The voltage has to be between 8 – 30 V. The power supply has to support minimum 0.5 A (the min and max current is a different for every board).
Plug the programmer in programming J4 port
Be careful! The programmer GND pin must be put in the port GND.
The steps for programming the board:
- 1Powering the device
- 2Linking a programmer with the computer through USB cable
- 3In Arduino IDE you can set Programmer port from the menu Tools/Port
- 4Plug the programmer into programming J4 port
- 5In Arduino IDE click Verify
- 6Press and hold a Boot button on the board. In Arduino IDE click Upload
- 7After the LEDs on the programmer start flashing you may release Boot button
