Select AVR Simulator as the debug platform and then select the appropriate device for your target AVR. For an Orangutan or 3pi Robot, this will either be ATmega48, ATmega168, ATmega328P, ATmega324PA, ATmega644P, or ATmega1284P depending on which chip your Orangutan or 3pi Robot has. Click Finish.
Select the Main tab. In the dropdown box that lists AVR models, select the same device that you selected when you created the project. For an Orangutan or 3pi Robot, this will either be ATmega48, ATmega168, or ATmega328P.
No driver installation is necessary to use the Pololu USB AVR Programmer in Linux. The Linux Kernel comes with a USB-to-serial driver (the cdc_acm module) that automatically works with the programmer. (The source code for this driver is in the kernel source under drivers/usb/class/cdc-acm.c.)
When you plug your programmer into a Linux computer, the CDC ACM driver should automatically detect it and create two serial port devices. Unless you have other devices plugged in that use the CDC ACM driver, the names of these two serial port devices should be /dev/ttyACM0 for the programming port and /dev/ttyACM1 for the USB-to-TTL-serial adapter.
To do this, open a Terminal window, type ls /dev/tty.usb*, and press enter. You should see two entries of the form tty.usbmodem (e.g. /dev/tty.usbmodem00022331). These entries represent virtual serial ports created by the programmer.
The TX and RX lines of the programmer are used to send asynchronous serial communication. When the programmer receives a byte from the computer via USB, it will transmit that byte on the TX line. When the programmer receives a byte on the RX input line, it will send that byte back to the computer via USB.
The bytes are sent and received eight bits at a time, with no parity and one stop bit. This coding is sometimes abbreviated 8N1. The bits must be non-inverted, meaning that a zero is sent as low voltage, and a one is sent as high voltage. All devices involved in asynchronous serial communication need to agree ahead of time on the duration of one bit (the baud rate), so all devices must be independently configured to run at the same baud rate before they will be able to communicate with each other. The USB AVR programmer supports all integer baud rates from 110 to 115200 bits per second. The following figure is an example of an 8N1 TTL serial byte:
To determine the port name in Linux, type ls /dev/ttyACM*. The port name will be one of the devices listed there. If there are only two ports, then the USB-to-TTL-serial adapter will be /dev/ttyACM1 (and the programming port will be /dev/ttyACM0). If you see more than two ports, then you should look at the output from dmesg when you plug in the USB AVR programmer to see which two ports are created; the second port is the USB-to-TTL-serial adapter. In Linux, the port name depends on how many other devices are using the USB CDC ACM driver to create virtual serial ports at the time the USB AVR Programmer is plugged in.
You can also write a computer program to use the serial port. The freely available Microsoft .NET framework contains a SerialPort class that makes it easy to read and write bytes from a serial port. Here is some example C# .NET code that uses a serial port:
In addition to transmitting bytes on the TX line and receiving bytes on the RX line, the USB-to-TTL-serial adapter can use programmer pins A and B as serial handshaking lines of your choosing. Each pin can be configured as an input or an output by identifying it with a serial handshaking line. The table below shows which handshaking lines are available (CTS is not available because there is no provision for it in the USB CDC ACM subclass).
By default, pins A and B are high-impedance inputs that are not identified with any handshaking line. To use pins A and/or B, you must configure them to be serial handshaking lines using the Pololu USB AVR Programmer Configuration Utility (see Section 3.e). The programmer stores the configuration in persistent memory.
After your have associated pins A and/or B with serial handshaking lines, you can take advantage of the I/O capabilities of A and B. For input lines, this means you can get a digital reading of the voltage on the line over USB. For output lines, this means you can set the voltage on the line over USB. A voltage of 0 V corresponds to a logical 1, while a voltage of 1 V corresponds to a logical 0.
You can read input lines and/or set output lines by either using a terminal program that supports control signals (such as Br@y Terminal) or by writing a computer program. The Microsoft .NET framework is free to use and it contains a SerialPort class that makes it easy to read and write bytes from a serial port as well as set and read the control signals. Here is some example C# .NET code that uses a serial port in this way:
While the SLO-scope is running, lines A and B do not function as serial handshaking lines as discussed in Section 6.a. Rather, the SLO-scope can control the I/O states of A and B. The SLO-scope application lets you configure these pins as inputs (their default settings when you first enable the SLO-scope) or as digital outputs driven high or low.
These special modified versions of the firmware make the programmer appear as a single virtual COM port instead of a composite device with two virtual COM ports and a native USB interface. These versions of the firmware do not support the TTL serial port, the SLO-scope, or the configuration utility. These versions were provided to support Mac OS X 10.6 or earlier.
After building a simple C program in Atmel Studio 7 that uses sprintf() to print a floating point number to a string and send it out of the serial port (USART0) of an ATmega2560 microcontroller, the following memory usage was recorded.
Thank you for this post. I have a problem I hope you can help with. I have my code running fine with information being displayed on the serial monitor and posting data on a node-Red UI page. All good.
Clank (full designation XJ-0461, serial number B5429671) is the titular deuteragonist and the secondary main playable character of the Ratchet & Clank series. He is a robot created by the Zoni, possessing a Zoni soul as a result, and is Ratchet's best friend.
Clank followed its coordinates to Ryllus, unlocked the stone temple, and used it to activate a map room, proving to Ratchet that they existed. They then found coordinates to Kalidon. Clank was suspicious that it was a trap, though Ratchet paid little attention. Shortly after finding Luna, he was electrocuted and dumped on Metalis, while Ratchet was taken to Medical Outpost Omega.
In PS596, Ruby's Kirlia, nicknamed Rara, evolved into a Gardevoir while training alongside Sapphire's Kirlia, Kirly. In Omega Alpha Adventure 20, she received a Gardevoirite from the Meteor Village Elder, allowing Ruby to Mega Evolve her into Mega Gardevoir.
There are many free Bluetooth Terminal available. I used the Bluetooth Serial Terminal (@ -us/store/p/bluetooth-serial-terminal/9wzdncrdfst8) which has PC and Mobile version to test the bluetooth module.
All Arduino board has at least one serial port (aka UART or USART). It communicates on digital pin 0 (RX) and pin 1 (TX), as well as with the computer via USB (via USB-to-Serial adaptor). This serial port is represented by the Serial object. If you started serial, you cannot use pins 0 and 1. You can use Arduino IDE's Serial Monitor to communicate with Arduino board.
The Arduino Mega2560 has three additional serial ports: Serial1 on pins 18 (TX) and 19 (RX), Serial2 on pins 16 (TX) and 17 (RX), Serial3 on pins 14 (TX) and 15 (RX). There are NOT connected to the built-in USB-to-Serial adaptor, and you need an additional USB-to-Serial adaptor.
R-Drive Image is a potent utility providing disk image files creation for backup or duplication purposes. A disk image file contains the exact, byte-by-byte copy of a hard drive, partition or logical disk and can be created with various compression levels on the fly without stopping Windows OS and therefore without interrupting your business. These drive image files can then be stored in a variety of places, including various removable media such as CD-R(W)/DVD, Iomega Zip or Jazz disks, etc.

As one of Robotics Contest 2016's winners here at Instructables, I received as a prize an iRobot Roomba Create2. It is a great and very affordable platform for robotics development, costing around US$200. Create 2 allows for a variety of programming methods. As a start, I used it with an Arduino and an Android APP to move the robot around. In this first tutorial, I will explore how to connect the Arduino with the Roomba via serial port and how to command its motors, LEDS and sound. On a future projects, I will explore its sensors and also use a Raspberry Pi to connect the Roomba with internet.
Hi I was wondering if this can be done using only an ESP-01 or a wemos D1mini and have wifi control instead of BluetoothAlso would it be possible to totally off board the FW/AI controls , like connect an esp board to the serial port and then have it send all of the sensors and wheel encoder data in real time via wifi to another external computer like a PC or a raspberry pi 4 where it would be processed and then send the control data back over wifi ?basically off boarding the brain so a more powerful computer with better AI could be used without the disadvantages of having to have it built in to the roomba and take up space and use its battery 2b1af7f3a8
