The Arduino Nano is a small, complete, and breadboard-friendly board based on the ATmega328 (Arduino Nano 3.x). It has more or less the same functionality of the Arduino Duemilanove, but in a different package.
The Arduino Nano is a little, complete, and breadboard-accommodating board dependent on the ATmega328P. It offers similar availability and specs of the UNO board in a more modest structure factor.
The Arduino Nano is customized utilizing the Arduino Software (IDE), our Integrated Development Environment normal to every one of our sheets and running both on the web and disconnected. For more data on the most proficient method to begin with the Arduino Software visit the Getting Started page.
Use your Arduino NANO Every on the Arduino Desktop IDE
If you want to program your Arduino NANO Every while offline you need to install the Arduino Desktop IDE and add the Arduino megaAVR Core to it. This simple procedure is done selecting Tools menu, then Boards and last Boards Manager, as documented in the Arduino Boards Manager page.
Installing Drivers for the Arduino NANO Every
With the megaAVR core installed, you now proceed with the driver installation.
OSX No driver installation is necessary on OSX. Depending on the version of the OS you’re running, you may get a dialog box asking you if you wish to open the “Network Preferences”. Click the “Network Preferences…” button, then click “Apply”. The Arduino NANO Every will show up as “Not Configured”, but it is still working. You can quit the System Preferences.
Windows (tested on 7, 8 and 10) If you properly installed the megaAVR Core, just connect the Arduino NANO Every to your computer with a USB cable. Windows should initiate its driver installation process once the board is plugged in.
Linux No driver installation is necessary for Linux.
Open your first sketch
Open the LED blink example sketch: File > Examples >01.Basics > Blink.
Select your board type and port
You’ll need to select the entry in the Tools > Board menu that corresponds to your Arduino board.
Select the serial device of the board from the Tools | Serial Port menu. This is likely to be COM3 or higher (COM1 is usually reserved for hardware serial ports). To find out, you can disconnect your board and re-open the menu; the entry that disappears should be the Arduino board. Reconnect the board and select that serial port.
Upload the program
Now, simply click the “Upload” button in the environment. Wait a few seconds – you should see the green progress bar on the right of the status bar. If the upload is successful, the message “Done uploading.” will appear on the left in the status bar.
A few seconds after the upload finishes, you should see the on-board LED start to blink (in orange). If it does, congratulations! You’ve gotten your Arduino NANO Every up-and-running. If you have problems, please see the troubleshooting suggestions.
