I have recklessly bought the Baite Pro Mini and I find it difficult to upload any program. I use Ubuntu Linux, but out of frustration I am ready to install Windows, if it is necessary.
I've read the information from the blog http://nerdralph.blogspot.ca/2014/01/baite-pro-mini-review.html . Too bad, that the blog owner didn't put much details. Can anyone here fill some blanks for me?
- How exactly should I connect the Arduino device to the computer? I have a converter USB to serial pl2303HX: which I tried to connect with the Baite Pro Mini in almost any plausible permutation of the wires, but never got any result.
Here is the description of pins of the pl2303HX:
I did connect it the following way:
Baite Pro Mini pl2303HX GND GND <------------> GND VCC <------------> +5V RXI <------------> TXD TXC <------------> RXD DTR
I also tried the permutation with different
GND pin. I also tried pressing the
reset button on the Baite Pro Mini around the time of hitting the "Upload" button on the Arduino standard compiler.
I believe my failure might have something to do with the absence of
DTR pin on the converter that resets the board just before upload. Are my worries justified? Is there anything I can do?
Which exactly Arduino bootloader do I need?
How to connect USBASP to the Beite Pro Mini?
