After connecting the STEMTera™ Breadboard into the computer, you need to configure the Arduino IDE to know the type of board that you intend to use. This configuration is located at the
Move the mouse over to the
Tools menu and click the
Tools menu once. When the
Tools menu appears, move the mouse to the
Board sub menu and another sub menu with a list of boards will appear. Click the Arduino/Genuino Uno selection. Arduino IDE is now configured to use the STEMTera™ Breadboard as the choice of development board.
The STEMTera™ Breadboard is 100% compatible with Arduino UNO but it is not listed in the Arduino Software’s Tools menu. Select “Arduino/Genuino Uno” instead.
The Arduino IDE also need to know the communication port of your STEMTera™ Breadboard. At the
Tools -> Port sub menu, select the appropriate port of your STEMTera™ Breadboard. Different Operating Systems will show different
On a Windows Operating System, the Arduino IDE will show the STEMTera™ Breadboard as
Port: "COMx (Arduino/Genuino Uno)"
On a Mac OS, the Arduino IDE will show the STEMTera™ Breadboard as
On a Linux Operating System, the Arduino IDE will show the STEMTera™ Breadboard as
Once the port has been configured, you can proceed to upload your first sketch.
