In this step, you will:
- Sign up for Arduino Create*
- Install the Arduino plugin on your host computer
- Verify your board's connections
- Upload the Arduino connector to your board
- Name your board
- On your host computer, go to https://create.arduino.cc/getting-started/up2. Then click LOGIN.
Note: If you don’t already have an Arduino Create account, follow the onscreen instructions to sign up. You'll need to activate your account and log into the site using your new account.
- If this is your first time using Arduino Create, you’ll be asked to install the Arduino plugin. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the Arduino plugin.
Note: If you get an error message saying We are not able to detect the installed plugin, try locating the Arduino Plugin icon in your system tray, right-click, then select Open plugin.
Verify your board's connection
- After installing the plugin, you’ll see a page asking you to double-check that your board is properly connected so the connector can be installed. Verify that it is still powered on and click NEXT.
Note: If you've completed Step 1 in this guide, your board is already set to go.
Upload the Arduino* connector to your board
- You’ll be asked to upload the Arduino Connector to your UP² board. Click UPLOAD.
- Wait about 3 minutes for your board to connect to Arduino Create.
Name your board
- Give your board a name, such as up2.
Now you’re ready for the next step, running your first program.
Note: Your board connects to the Arduino Create development environment over the Internet. If you disconnect your board and move it to another location, it should reconnect to the Arduino Create environment. If you are using proxy settings, you will need to go through this setup process again if you move your board to a network that doesn’t have a proxy.
