Selecting board, processor, and port
In order to upload programs onto Core modules, the correct board, processor and port needs to be selected.
Follow the initial setup for your specific platform before proceeding:
Selecting the Board and Processor
Selecting the Board Type and Processor is required to compile the correct code for the core module.
Configuring the software is done under Tools > Board and Tools > Processor.
Below is the table which lists all the core modules with corresponding Board and Processor. The table also lists kits that contain specific core modules.
Example usage would be for the Core module in Itty Bitty City. Board is Microduino/mCookie-Core (328p) and Processor is Atmega328P@16M,5V.
|Name||Board||Processor||Contained in Kit|
|Core (168pa)||Microduino/mCookie-Core (168pa)||Atmega168pa@8M,3.3V|
|Core (328p)||Microduino/mCookie-Core (328p)||Atmega328P@8M,3.3V|
|Atmega328P@16M,5V||Itty Bitty City Kit, X02 Series Kits: 102 Basic Kit; 202 Advanced Kit; 302 Expert Kit|
|Core+ (644pa)||Microduino/mCookie-Core+ (644pa)||Atmega644pa@16M,3.3V|
|Atmega644pa@16M,5V||302 Expert Kit|
|Core+ (1284pa)||Microduino/mCookie-Core+ (1284pa)||Atmega1284pa@8M,3.3V|
|CoreUSB||Microduino/mCookie-Core USB (32u4)||USB||X01 Series Kits: 101 Basic Kit; 201 Advanced Kit; 301 Expert Kit|
|CoreRF||Microduino/mCookie RF (128rfa1)|
Determining Processor Variant
Selecting the Port
Port selection is dependent on which programmer is connected. But it is usually the only select-able port in the list.
If there is no select-able port ensure that:
- the hardware connections are secure and correct
- the drivers are installed.
- Select board type and processor.
- Select the port.
- Click upload.
- Note: If using mBattery to upload to a core module. Ensure that mBattery is "ON" and supplying power to the modules. There will be a red LED on.
