Everyone is well aware of the huge number of analogues of the Arduino board, which is due to the openness of the architecture of this platform. As a rule, they all can work with the standard Arduino IDE development environment, but unlike the original motherboards, analogs (in particular on CH340 / ATmega328 chips) often require additional settings.WAVGAT UNO R3 or WAVCAT UNO R3 – belongs to one of these functional and compatible analogue of Arduino UNO R3 board.
Preparing to work with this board includes performing the following steps:
- 1.Installation of Arduino IDE;
2. Install drivers for the CH340 chip;
3. Making changes to the Arduino IDE needed to work withWAVGAT UNO R3.
First, you need to download from the official website and install Arduino IDE package:
2. Installing the drivers for the chip series CH340 / CH341
Similarly, we download and install the drivers at the link:
3. Configuring Arduino IDE
To Arduino IDE could work with the board WAVGAT first need to download the files here:
Once you download the update.rar archive, you need to unpack it and move the two directories contained in it (hardware and libraries) into the Arduino directory:
where Admin_user – is your Windows account with administrator privileges.
After that you need to restart the Arduino IDE and check it in the settings Tools/Board: the WAVGAT UNO R3 item appears at the bottom and whether your computer recognizes the board after it is connected (in Tools/Port or the Settings/Port there should be a point other than COM1).
At this point, if everything is done correctly, you may need to restart the Arduino IDE and re-connect the WAVGAT board. That’s it, now you can work with WAVGAT UNO R3 like the Arduino UNO R3. If you have any questions or difficulties – feel free to ask them in the comments. Good luck!
