Windows. 1 | Get an Arduino board and USB cable In this tutorial, we assume you're using an Arduino Uno, Arduino Duemilanove, Nano, Arduino Mega 2560 , or Diecimila.

Windows

If you have another board, read the corresponding page in this getting started guide. You also need a standard USB cable (A plug to B plug): the kind you would connect to a USB printer, for example. (For the Arduino Nano, you'll need an A to Mini-B cable instead.) 2 | Download the Arduino environment Get the latest version from the download page.

When the download finishes, unzip the downloaded file. 3 | Connect the board The Arduino Uno, Mega, Duemilanove and Arduino Nano automatically draw power from either the USB connection to the computer or an external power supply. Connect the Arduino board to your computer using the USB cable. 4 | Install the drivers Installing drivers for the Arduino Uno or Arduino Mega 2560 with Windows 7, Vista, or XP: Plug in your board and wait for Windows to begin it's driver installation process. BlinkingLED. (redirected from Tutorial.BlinkingLED) Learning Examples | Foundations | Hacking | Links Examples > Basics Blink This example shows the simplest thing you can do with an Arduino to see physical output: it blinks an LED.

BlinkingLED

Hardware Required Arduino Board LED Circuit To build the circuit, attach a 220-ohm resistor to pin 13. Most Arduino boards already have an LED attached to pin 13 on the board itself. Schematic. Starter Kit for Arduino - Flex. Replacement: DEV-11226.

Starter Kit for Arduino - Flex

This kit now includes the Arduino Uno R3. This page is for reference only. Description: The Arduino Starter Kit is a great raw parts re-fill for beginners and weathered professionals alike. This version comes with the Arduino Uno SMD. Also included is a multitude of inputs, outputs, and sensors to get your workbench back up to par. Note: Because Atmel is moving more and more of their production capacity to surface mount ICs, the DIP packaged ATmega328 is becoming more and more difficult to get. Note: Our first batch of the Arduino SMD boards have a problem with the bootloader. Kit Includes: Arduino Uno - Arduino UNO SMD board, fully assembled and tested. 6' USB A to B cable - USB provides power for up to 500mA (enough for most projects) and is ample length to connect to your desktop or laptop USB port.
