If you have another board, read the corresponding page in this getting started guide.

You also need a standard USB cable (A plug to B plug): the kind you would connect to a USB printer, for example. (For the Arduino Nano, you'll need an A to Mini-B cable instead.)

(:if lang en:)
The Arduino Uno, Mega, Duemilanove and Arduino Nano automatically draw power from either the USB connection to the computer or an external power supply. If you're using an Arduino Diecimila, you'll need to make sure that the board is configured to draw power from the USB connection. The power source is selected with a jumper, a small piece of plastic that fits onto two of the three pins between the USB and power jacks. Check that it's on the two pins closest to the USB port.

Connect the Arduino board to your computer using the USB cable. The green power LED (labelled '''PWR''') should go on.
(:ifend:)

(:if lang cn:)
Genuino UNO, Mega 2560 和Micro能自动通过连接到电脑的USB线或者外部的供电来获取电源。你可以用USB电源给板子供电。

当你用USB线把Genuino板子和电脑连接起来后,你会看到电路板上面绿色的LED(标注着“PWR”)被点亮。

You'll need to select the entry in the '''Tools > Board''' menu that corresponds to your Arduino.

[-Selecting an Arduino Uno-]

For Duemilanove Arduino boards with an ATmega328 (check the text on the chip on the board), select '''Arduino Duemilanove or Nano w/ ATmega328'''. Previously, Arduino boards came with an ATmega168; for those, select '''Arduino Diecimila, Duemilanove, or Nano w/ ATmega168'''. (Details of the board menu entries are available [[http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Environment#boards | on the environment page]].)

你将需要在'''工具> 板''' 菜单选择对应的Genuino板子,上面会列着Arduino/Genuino以及板子的类型(Uno, Mega 2560 or Micro).

Now, simply click the "Upload" button in the environment. Wait a few seconds - you should see the RX and TX leds on the board flashing. If the upload is successful, the message "Done uploading." will appear in the status bar. (''Note:'' If you have an Arduino Mini, NG, or other board, you'll need to physically press the reset button on the board immediately before clicking the upload button on the Arduino Software.)

Attach:UploadButton1.png
\\
A few seconds after the upload finishes, you should see the pin 13 (L) LED on the board start to blink (in orange). If it does, congratulations! You've gotten Arduino up-and-running. If you have problems, please see the [[Troubleshooting | troubleshooting suggestions]].

You might also want to look at:
* the [[Tutorial/HomePage | examples]] for using various sensors and actuators
* the [[Reference/HomePage | reference]] for the Arduino language

(:if lang cn:)
现在,你只需要在Arduino软件(IDE)点击“上传”按钮. 稍等片刻,你就会看到板子上面标有RX和TX的LED灯在闪。 如果上传成功,状态栏会出现“上传成功”的字样。

Attach:UploadButton1.png

上传完之后,你会很快看到板子13号针脚(L)的LED开始在闪。这证明上传成功了,你已经把Genuino和Arduino软件(IDE)跑起来了!

插上开发板,等待Windows开始安装开发板驱动程序。若您选择不使用安装程序,就算进最大的努力,最后还是会安装失败,因此,您必须进行以下操作:
*点击开始菜单,打开控制面板。
*通过控制面板导航到系统和安全项,然后单击系统。系统窗口出现后,打开设备管理器。
*查看端口(COM和LPT),应该会看到一个名为“Arduino Uno(COMxx)”的开放端口。若不存在COM和LPT部分,查看“其他设备”中的“未知设备”项。
*右击“Arduino UNO(COMxx)”端口项,然后选择“更新驱动程序软件”选项。
*随后,选择“浏览计算机以查找驱动程序软件”选项。
*最后,转向并选择名为" “arduino.inf” "的驱动程序文件,该文件位于Arduino软件下载“驱动程序”文件夹(不是" “FTDI USB驱动程序” "子目录)中。
* Windows将从此处完成驱动程序安装。
另请参阅: [[UnoDriversWindowsXP | Windows XP系统中安装Uno的步骤截图]]。
您可以打开Windows设备管理器(位于系统控制面板的硬件选项卡中),检查是否已经安装驱动程序。在端口部分查找“USB串行端口”,该串行端口就代表Arduino/ Genuino开发板。

!!!4 | Connect the board

If you're using a serial board, power the board with an external power supply (6 to 25 volts DC, with the core of the connector positive). Connect the board to a serial port on your computer.

On the USB boards, the power source is selected by the jumper between the USB and power plugs. To power the board from the USB port (good for controlling low power devices like LEDs), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the USB plug. To power the board from an external power supply (needed for motors and other high current devices), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the power plug. Either way, connect the board to a USB port on your computer.

The power LED should go on.

!!Arduino Howto

These are the steps you need to follow in order to be up and running:

# Get an Arduino board
# Download the Arduino environment
# Install the USB drivers
# Connect the board
# Upload a program

!!!1 | Get an Arduino board
The Arduino i/o board is a simple circuit featuring the ATmega8 processor from Atmel. The board is composed of a printed circuit board (PCB) and electronic parts.

Attach:ArduinoNG.jpg

There are a few ways to get an Arduino board:

* '''buy a ready made board'''. See how you can [[Main/Buy| buy]] a board or just the PCB.
** [[http://pcb-europe.net/catalog/index.php?cPath=29 | European distributor]]
** [[http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=666 | US distributor]]
* '''build your own board'''. If you want you can build your own PCB just by downloading the CAD files from the [[Main/Hardware]] page. Extract the .brd file and send it to a PCB manufacturer. Be aware that manufacturing a single pcb will be very expensive. It's better to get together with other people and make 20 or 30 at a time. Since you get the full CAD files you can make your own customised version of Arduino. if you make modifications or fix bugs please send us your changes!
** '''purchase parts'''. purchase the parts from any electronics store. The Serial version in particular has been designed to use the most basic parts that can be found anywhere in the world. The USB version on the other hand requires some advanced soldering skills because of the FTDI chip that is an smd part. Here is a [[PartsSerial | list]] of parts for the serial board.
** '''assemble the board'''. We put together a step by step [[Main/BuildSerial | guide]] on how to build an arduino board. ''Newbies: never soldered before? afraid of trashing thousands of boards before getting one properly soldered? fear not :) learn to master the art of [[http://www.potemkin.org/cms/Pid/Soldering | soldering]].''
** '''program the bootloader'''. In order for the development environment to be able to program the chip, this has to be programmed with a piece of code called ''bootloader''. See the [[Main/bootloader]] page on how to program it on your chip.

!!!2 | Download the Arduino environment
To program the Arduino board you need the Arduino environment.

'''Download Arduino''':
From the [[Main/Software | software page]].

For more information, see the [[Environment | guide to the Arduino environment]].

!!!3 | Install the USB drivers
If you are using a USB Arduino, you will need to install the drivers for the FTDI chip on the board. These can be found in the @@drivers@@ directory of the Arduino distribution.

On Windows, you will need to unzip @@FTDI USB Drivers.zip@@. Then, when you plug in the Arduino board, point the Windows ''Add Hardware'' wizard to the @@FTDI USB Drivers@@ directory.

Attach:windows-extract-drivers.png

The latest version of the drivers can be found on the [[http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm | FTDI website]].

!!!4 | Connect the board

If you're using a serial board, power the board with an external power supply (6 to 25 volts DC, with the core of the connector positive). Connect the board to a serial port on your computer.

On the USB boards, the power source is selected by the jumper between the USB and power plugs. To power the board from the USB port (good for controlling low power devices like LEDs), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the USB plug. To power the board from an external power supply (needed for motors and other high current devices), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the power plug. Either way, connect the board to a USB port on your computer.

The power LED should go on.

Attach:PluggedIn.jpg

On Windows, the Add New Hardware wizard will open. Tell it not to connect to Windows update and click next.

Attach:wizard1-step1.png

Then select "Install from a list or specified location (Advanced)" and click next.

Attach:wizard1-step2.png

Make sure that "Search for the best driver in these locations is checked"; uncheck "Search removable media"; check "Include this location in the search" and browse to the location you unzipped the USB drivers to in the previous step. Click next.

Attach:wizard1-step3.png

The wizard will search for the driver and then tell you that a "USB Serial Converter" was found. Click finish.

Attach:wizard1-step4.png

The new hardware wizard will appear again. Go through the same steps. This time, a "USB Serial Port" will be found.

!!!5 | Upload a program

Open the LED blink example sketch: File > Sketchbook > Examples > led_blink.

Attach:LedBlinkExample.png

Here's what the code for the LED blink example looks like.

Attach:ArduinoEnvironment.png

Select the serial device of the Arduino board from the Tools | Serial Port menu. On Windows, this should be @@COM1@@ or @@COM2@@ for a serial Arduino board, or @@COM3@@, @@COM4@@, or @@COM5@@ for a USB board.
