You received your Croduino and now it is time to program. Next tutorial is related to Croduino Basic2 PB version of Croduino Basic2 board and it has a „Croduino Basic2 PB“ sticker on its back, as shown in the picture:
If you are planning to use your old Croduino after making these changes inside Arduino IDE, make sure you check out the reference down below.
Step 1: Driver installation
If you haven't used our boards so far, firstly, you will need to install the CP2102 drivers.
Step 2: Arduino IDE installation
Also, if you haven't used Arduino IDE until now, you will need to install it. You can find it's installation under "Software -> Downloads" on the official Arduino website. Select the operating system you are using to start the download.
Step 3: Adding URLs to Arduino IDE
You will now need to add the URLs that Arduino Boards Manager will use. Click on File-> Preferences (Ctrl +,) and click on the icon at the bottom of "Additional Boards Manager URLs".
In the opening menu, enter the next two links. Separate them with an enter (new line) as in the picture.
Step 4: Installation through Boards Manager
Open Boards Manager by clicking on Tools->Boards->Boards Manager.
Install Arduino AVR Boards by Arduino, version 1.6.207. It may take up to several minutes.
After that, type "croduino" in the search section. The "Croduino Basic2 PB" package appears by e-radionica.com. Select and install it.
Step 5: Use!
That's it! The last thing is to choose a Croduino board. Select by clicking Tools-> Board-> Croduino Basic2 PB.
Select the appropriate serial port on which Croduino is connected to and you are ready to upload!
NOTE: If you are using Croduino Basic2 (without PB mark)
If you have a standard Croduino Basic2 that you plan to use with Arduino IDE, you only need to change one option inside Arduino IDE to make the upload successful. Under Tools-> Board-> Processor you must select ATmega328P (Old Bootloader). Board remains Arduino Nano as before!
