Tutorial - Setting up an EL display with the EL Escudo Dos
about 5 years ago
Hello. I have the El Escudo Dos set up as mentioned above. It's connected with the pins to an Arduino Uno board. I have the 3 Volt inverter, and I have my laptop connected wtih USB to the Arduino to load the program.
I'm having issues loading the program though. It gives an error saying "Board at COM4 is not available" even though the IDE on the lower right portion says the Arduino Uno is at COM4.
So I have the following questions:
1) which version of the Arduino IDE was used in this tutorial? I currently have Arduino 1.5.5.
2) which board is selected under Tools->Boards? I've selected just Arduino Uno.
3) which programmer option was selected? (ie AVR ISP, AVRISP mkII, USBtinyISP, USBasp, Parallel Programmer, Arduino as ISP?)
4) is there any additional config files needed to make the Arduino Uno work with the El Escudo Dos, or El Sequencer? if so, how do you load it into the IDE?
Sorry for so many questions but I'm really trying to learn this, thanks.
