Arduino Ethernet.

This tutorial demonstrates how you can connect to a standalone Arduino Ethernet either with a MAC or a PC. The connection is confirmed by using the Blink sketch. This is not a tutorial for programming your SKAARHOJ device - we suggest you then start with the Connecting to your ATEM switcher.

What you need:


This demo is performed on Mac OS 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion) with Arduino IDE 1.01

Step 1: Download Arduino IDE

Download Arduino IDE at Arduino website under Download. Drag the into your application folder. ArduinoEthernet Download.png

Step 2: Download FTDI Chip Driver

Download FTDI chip driver at FTDI website. Chose the version that fits your system. ArduinoEthernet FTDI.png

Step 3: Mount Download and Install

Open the downloaded .dmg file and mount it. Then open the .mpkg file with the highest version number and complete the installation. ArduinoEthernet SerialDriver.png

Step 4: Reboot

Reboot your system!

Step 5: Connect Arduino

Connect your Arduino Ethernet and your MAC with the FTDI programming cable (Important! The black wire against the BLK pin)

Step 6: Open Arduino

Open the Arduino Application

Step 7: Set Board

Set the right board in Tools -> Board -> Arduino Ethernet ArduinoEthernet Board.png

Step 8: Open Blink Sketch

Open the Blink sketch in File -> Examples -> 01.Basics -> Blink
