Arduino Progam Uploading

One of the most common issues in working with different Arduino boards is making the correct Tools selections in the Arduino IDE.

This pages serves as a quick reminder for all of the Tools selections for different TinyCircuits' processors. Use the Table of Contents to go to the processor of your choice!


TinyDuino

If you have not already, make sure you have downloaded the necessary software using the TinyDuino Learn Page. Additionally, make sure the power switch on the board is toggled to ON.

The Tools selections for the TinyDuino:

  • Board: "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini"
  • Processor: "ATmega328p (3.3V, 8 MHz)"
  • Port: "COM##"
    • (this number will be different for everyone, check the Port Trouble Learn Page if you are not sure which one it is)


TinyScreen+

If you have not already, make sure you have downloaded the necessary software (specifically the Board Package that allows TinyCircuits processors to be selectable in the Arduino IDE) using the TinyScreen+ Learn Page. Additionally, make sure the power switch on the board is toggled to ON.

The Tools selections for the TinyScreen+:

  • Board: "TinyScreen+"
  • Build Option: "Default"
  • Port: "COM## (TinyScreen+)"
    • (this number will be different for everyone, check the Port Trouble Learn Page if you are not sure which one it is)


TinyZero

If you have not already, make sure you have downloaded the necessary software (specifically the Board Package that allows TinyCircuits processors to be selectable in the Arduino IDE) using the TinyZero Learn Page. Additionally, make sure the power switch on the board is toggled to ON.

The Tools selections for the TinyZero:

  • Board: "TinyZero"
  • Build Option: "Default"
  • Port: "COM## (TinyScreen+)"
    • (this number will be different for everyone, check the Port Trouble Learn Page if you are not sure which one it is)
    • Even though this is the TinyZero, it is labeled as TinyScreen+ because both the TinyScreen+ and TinyZero use the same SAMD21 processor


TinyLily

If you have not already, make sure you have downloaded the necessary software using the TinyLily Learn Page. Additionally, make sure the power switch on the board is toggled to ON.

The Tools selections for the TinyLily:

  • Board: "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini"
  • Processor: "ATmega328p (3.3V, 8 MHz)"
  • Port: "COM##"
    • (this number will be different for everyone, check the Port Trouble Learn Page if you are not sure which one it is)
    • These selections are the same as the TinyDuino because both the TinyLily and TinyDuino use the same ATmega328p processor.
