Embedded Systems Downloads
- Compiler and development environment (latter for Windows only): Atmel tools installation page
- Circuit drawing: Eagle CAD
- Subversion (source code sharing):
- Terminal interface:
- OSX: use "screen" (should already be installed): more details
From your terminal, type: "screen /dev/tty.usbmodem26411 38400"
Note: the precise name may be different on your machine.
- Linux: install ckermit.
The atmel device will likely show up as /dev/ttyACM0
- Windows: download both hyperterm.exe and
Store in a common folder and execute hyperterm.exe
You may also need a driver for the Arduino Mega 2560
- EasySync Oscilloscope (Windoze only):
Installing and Configuring Hyperterm
Plug in Arduino board into USB. If you haven't installed the driver
before, it will pop out a window and ask for driver. Choose 'browse my
computer for driver software'. Next, click 'Browse' and select the
folder that contains the downloaded 'Arduino MEGA 2560.inf' (above). Click
'Next', and windows should be able to find the driver and install it
with success. If the driver is correctly installed, you should see
something like 'Arduino Mega 2560 (COM7)' under 'Ports (COM & LPT)' in
Device Manager (you can get to Device Manger in Control Panel). It may
show a port number other than 'COM7'. Just remember this number and
you'll need it next.
- Download hypertrm (exe and dll) and put them in the same folder. Open
up hypertrm.exe. If you have never used hypertrm before, it will ask your
location. Just enter an arbitrary area code and click 'Next'. Then, it
asks you to enter a name for the connection. Enter an arbitrary name,
and click 'OK'. Next, select the correct COM port for the Arduino board
and click 'OK'. Next, change 'Bits per second' to 38400 and click 'OK'.
You should be all set.
- Now, anything that you type in the window will be sent to port
0 on your Arduino board. And, anything that your Arduino sends will
be shown in the window.
