How to program Itead Rboard ? ISP ? FOCA ?

  • Newbie Q, I guess ...

    So I am the proud owner of a nice Itead Rboard (4 relays).
    Other members here on the forum seem to got it working.

    As I have an old AVRISP MKII lying around, I thought I could just hook it up, select AVRIPS MK II programmer in ARDUINO IDE and go, but that seemed to good to be true 🙂
    On the AVRISP both LED's are green (on Rboard side and on USB side) but I don't know what's wrong.
    ARDUINO IDE seems to be looking for a com port which is not available with the AVRISP connected.

    So, do I need to purchase the FOCA ?
    Hopefully somebody can explain step-by-step instructions ?

    Use Arduino 1.6.13 and not 1.8, it's a problem related to fuses with clones...

    You need to program with another arduino nano (or other) as ISP

    Then use the following:

    Duemilanove > 328P
    arduino as ISP
    plug the 7-19v Vin on the rboard

    You may also have to burn the bootloader
    And maybe need to press manually reset button on rboard, personally i don't need to.

    I've been struggling for a while with this board.
