OSEPP 201 ARDUINO BASICS STARTER KIT  

Page 21 of the 201 BOOKLET:

Code Hint: should refer to LINE 35 instead of LINE 25

 

 

OSEPP 101 Arduino Basics Kit / 101 Arduino Companion Kit

Tutorial 1: Loading the First Sketch

Step IV b)

Changed to:

  • Under Port (COM & LPT), you should see the “FT232R USB UART” device with an “!” mark.

Step IV e)

 Changed to:

  •  Navigate to the “drivers/FTDI USB Drivers” folder inside the arduino-x.y.z-windows folder you unzipped in step II.

Step IV f)

 Changed to:

  • Let Windows finish the installation.

Step V c)

 Changed to:

  •  Select your board by clicking “Tools → Board → Arduino UNO”.

IMPORTANT:

If your sketch does not load properly using this selection, please select Arduino Duemilanove or Nano w/ ATmega328.  It was brought to our attention that some of our UNO R3 boards may have been loaded with this bootloader instead (we are embarrassed). Functionally, it is the same so no real concerns. Please accept our apologies!! If you have any concerns, please email Support@osepp.com  and you will be looked after!)

 

Tutorial 3: Using Digital Input

Changed input pin from D13 to D12

OSEPP™ Pro Mini

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Thanks to some of your feedback, we found out that some of our Pro Mini boards from a certain batch were loaded with the UNO bootloader instead of the Pro Mini bootloader the manufacturing process.

The good news is that the boards are still fully functional even with the wrong UNO bootloader (even faster according to some of you).

There are a few things that can be done to alleviate the problem:

1. Use the board as is and simply select “Arduino Uno” as the board type from the Arduino IDE. Since the Uno and the Pro Mini share the same capabilities (same digital/analog pin count), it will not affect the sketches that are loaded.
2. If you have access to an Atmel AVR programmer, you can burn the correct Pro Mini bootloader onto the board via ICSP. See instructions here, http://www.arduino.cc/en/Hacking/MiniBootloader
3. Send the board to us and we will load the correct bootloader on it for you and send it back. If you wish to follow this route, please contact us at support@osepp.com and we will make the arrangements.
To identify if the board has the Uno bootloader loaded, provide power to the board then press and release the reset button. If the LED next to the reset button blinks twice successively, then it is the Uno bootloader.

Please accept our apologies for the little hiccup.
