Arduino Nano sketch flashing with Arduino IDE

This guide simply explains how to flash an "ino" sketch on your Arduino Uno/Nano or similar, using Arduino IDE. For this guide, I used a chinese Arduino Nano clone equipped with CH340 USB-to-UART adapter. This guide is also applicable for flashing Fuelino software into Fuelino hardware (such as Fuelino Proto3). Before performing the following steps, … Continue reading "Arduino Nano sketch flashing with Arduino IDE"

How to connect Arduino and Raspberry Pi using USB and C++
