Step 1: Arduino IDE download

*Arduino compitable, first install basic IDE

  • We have Microduino compatible hardware support packages and libraries integrated in the IDE, the next step will be to verify their validity

Step 2: Verify IDE

*Verifying hardware support package

  • For fit variety of Microduino core, IDE has integrated Microduino hardware support package;
    • The support package to make Microduino hardware display in the board of Arduino IDE
    • like official Arduino hardware, you can download online and reprogram the bootloader

  • Start Arduino IDE, click the "Tools" menu
  • You will see Microduino series under "Board" menu.

*Verify library

  • For dozens of different functional modules, Microduino sorting out a compatible library support package;
    • It contains the original part of the official Arduino support package
    • We just renamed their folders for easy sorting classification

  • Start Arduino IDE, click the "File" menu
  • You will find the program example in the "Examples" menu.

Step 3: Drivers

*After development environment configured to start installing the driver

*Download Driver*

*Install the driver


  • Automatic installation
    • Unzip get "\ Windows \ Automatic" folder contents
    • Run one "CDM XX WHQL Certified.exe"
      • (win7 need administrator privileges to run, like right photo)
    • Follow the prompts to complete the installation​
  • Manual installation

*Mac OS

  • Unzip get"\Mac.os"Folder Contents
  • Run "FTDIUSBSerialDriver_X_X"
  • Follow the prompts to complete the installation

   If there is damage or missing signature file when prompted, can not install the driver properly, you need to disable the digital signature system installation in windows 8。
   1.Turn off the check.
   2.Hold the shift key while clicking on Restart
   3.Select Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Startup Settings > Restart
   4.After Restart select option 7.

Step 4: Connecting hardware

  • Use Micro-USB cable to connect with Microduino-USBTTL to your PC / Mac;

  • You will see the "COMXX"

*Mac OS

  • Open the IDE, in the menu "Tools" in the "Serial Port"
