How do I program my Arduino Pro Mini without FTDI?

How do I program my Arduino Pro Mini without FTDI?

Connection :

  1. Connect Arduino pro mini GND to Arduino Uno GND.
  2. Pro mini Vcc to Arduino Uno 3.3v ( If you are using an Arduino pro mini 5-volt module then connect vcc to uno 5volt)
  3. Pro mini RX to Uno RX.
  4. Pro mini TX to Uno TX.
  5. Pro mini DTR no connection.
  6. Arduino Uno Reset pin to GND.

How do I program Arduino Pro Mini with Arduino Nano?

1 Answer

  1. Load the ArduinoISP sketch into the Arduino that you will use as programmer.
  2. Select the serial port of the Arduino Nano (target): Tools > Port > corresponding port number.
  3. Wire up the two Arduinos as described.
  4. In the Tools menu, set the programmer to the Arduino as ISP .

What is Arduino Pro Mini used for?

The Arduino Pro Mini is intended for semi-permanent installation in objects or exhibitions. The board comes without pre-mounted headers, allowing the use of various types of connectors or direct soldering of wires. The pin layout is compatible with the Arduino Mini.

How do I give my Arduino Pro Mini a power supply?

Power. The Arduino Pro Mini can be powered with an FTDI cable or breakout board connected to its six pin header, or with a regulated 3.3V or 5V supply (depending on the model) on the Vcc pin. There is a voltage regulator on board so it can accept voltage up to 12VDC.

How do I program Arduino Pro Mini using USB to TTL?

Uploading Sketch with Arduino IDE

  1. Arduino IDE -> Tools -> Board -> Arduino Pro or Pro Mini.
  2. Arduino IDE -> Tools -> Processor -> ATmega328 (5V, 16 MHz)
  3. Arduino IDE -> Tools -> Port -> /dev/tty. SLAB_USBtoUART.
  4. Arduino IDE -> Tools -> Programmer -> AVRISP mkII.

What programmer should I use for Arduino Pro Mini?

The Arduino Pro Mini is programmed using the Arduino Software (IDE), our Integrated Development Environment common to all our boards and running both online and offline.

Can I use Arduino Uno to program Pro Mini?

Arduino Pro mini is just a small version of UNO with same Atmega 328 IC . It is tiny without any USB port for programming and needs a special Module to program but we can still program it using Arduino UNO.

How do I connect USB TTL to Arduino Pro Mini?

Connections CP2102 USB-to-TTL 5pins to Arduino Mini Pro:

  1. CP2102 USB-to-TTL: TXD (green) -> Arduino Mini Pro RX.
  2. CP2102 USB-to-TTL: RXD (yellow) -> Arduino Mini Pro TX.
  3. CP2102 USB-to-TTL: GND (brown) -> Arduino Mini Pro GND.
  4. CP2102 USB-to-TTL: +5V (red) -> Arduino Mini Pro VCC.
