Sippino

Needed:

  1. Sippino 328 Kit: Maker Shed
  2. USB to Serial Cable: SparkFun DEV-09718
  3. (Optional) Break Away Male Headers – Right Angle SparkFun PRT-00553

Procedure:

  1. Solder components to PCA, with exception of Headers. You may want to substitute the right-angle headers for the vertical headers included in the kit. The right-angle headers will let you plug the Sippino into a breadboard vertically, with maximum room left over for your other circuit components. The reference designators are given on the packaging. Just insert the through-hole parts and solder. Note that the long lead of the LED is the “+” side. For more details on soldering, see the detailed app note here: http://www.spikenzielabs.com/SpikenzieLabs/sippino.html
  2. Plug the USB to Serial Cable into your computer. If necessary, download the drivers from FTDI: http://www.ftdichip.com/FTDrivers.htm
  3. Plug the other end of the cable into the Sippino board. Make sure the black wire goes into the pin with a “B” on the board and the green wire goes into the pin with the “G” on the board.
  4. Start the Arduino application.
  5. Tools>Serial Port>Select the FTDI port
  6. Tools>Board>Arduino Nano w/ ATmega328 seems to work.
  7. Upload your sketch like usual.

Notes:

  1. When the two pin jumper is installed, the board is powered from the FTDI port. When the jummper is removed, external power must be provided to the “SIP” pin marked +5V
