  • have a RedBoard that someone from Sparkfun gave my son at a conference in Austin. I can’t upload any sketches to it.

    I’ve got serial port connectivity to it on both OS X and FreeBSD, at least, I have connectivity enough to make the ‘TX’ LED light with each keystroke.

    but if I try to use the Arduino software (using the blink example), I get:

    “Binary sketch size: 1,084 bytes (of a 32,256 byte maximum) avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding”

    I’ve never seen a response (of any type) from the board. I would think that the boot loader (if present) would respond to, say, a simple carriage return.

    From ‘cu’, I’ve tried the following baud rates: 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200.

    None have succeeded.

    I believe I have the correct drivers. When the RedBoard is plugged in, dmesg reports:

    AppleUSBFTDI, fInBufPool,kMaxInBufPool 8,64 0 [Level 5] [com.apple.message.domain com.apple.commssw.ftdi.device] [com.apple.message.signature AppleUSBFTDI] [com.apple.message.signature2 0x403] [com.apple.message.signature3 0x6001] [com.apple.message.summarize YES] AppleUSBFTDI: Version number - 1.0.1b10, Input buffers 8, Output buffers 16

    and I get two device entries: /dev/tty.usbserial-AM01VDPE /dev/cu.usbserial-AM01VDPE

    both are mode 666 (crw-rw-rw), so it’s not a permissions problem.

    Powering the board on blinks the blue LED (marked ‘13’) three times.

    Help?
