UP²* board Getting Started Guide for Arduino Create*

Follow these steps to connect your board to Arduino Create* and begin working with your development kit.
Computing devices like the UP²* board can allow attackers to obtain unauthorized disclosure of information through attacks known as Meltdown and Spectre. For the security patch to address these attacks, see http://www.aaeon.com/en/ni/security-announcement-intel-side-channel-vulnerability.
You’ll walk through the following basic steps:
Make Board Connections
Connect the Grove Pi+* board and cables, then power on your UP²* board
Connect to Arduino Create*
Sign up for an Arduino Create account and connect the UP² board to the Arduino Create Web Editor
Run the Blink Application
Find and run a sample application to blink an LED on your board
Before you begin: Gather your materials
Gather your items from this kit:
You’ll also need the following, not included in the kit:
  • Ethernet cable and internet access
  • A host computer, connected to the Internet.
If your host computer has Windows*, note that Windows 7 is not supported. Additionally, Arduino Create does not support Microsoft Internet Explorer*.
Your prototyping environment
When you've completed the steps in this guide, your environment will be set up like this:
You'll be able to code your sketches, and upload and run them on your UP² board via the cloud from your host computer.
