Sanguino for Mac OSX

Install Arduino Software

The Sanguino uses the Arduino software and adds some small modifications to support our particular board.

First, you'll need to install the Arduino software. You need to install Arduino 0012 or later.

If you already have it installed, then skip this step.

Install Sanguino Software

Visit the Sanguino Software download page and download the latest version of the Sanguino software.

Copy Folders

Unzip the Sanguino software file. It contains some folders that need to be copied into the Arduino software directory.

  • Note: As of arduino-0017 you'll have to Ctrl-Click the Arduino.app file and choose Show Package Contents then navigate to the Contents / Resources / Java subdirectory to find the ./hardware equivalent subdirectory mentioned below.
  1. Copy sanguino-software-1.x/cores/sanguino to arduino-0012/hardware/cores/sanguino
  2. Copy sanguino-software-1.x/bootloaders/atmega644p to arduino-0012/hardware/bootloaders/atmega644p
  3. Copy all the folders in sanguino-software-1.x/libraries/ to arduino-0012/hardware/libraries/ overwriting the existing libraries.

Edit boards.txt

Open the Arduino file located at arduino-0012/hardware/boards.txt and append the text from sanguino-software-1.x/boards.txt to the end of the arduino boards.txt file.

You can open it with TextEdit which ships with OSX, or use an editor like TextMate. (my favorite!)

Restart Arduino

Restart (or start) your Arduino host software. From the Tools -> Board menu, select the Sanguino board. You will now be able to use your Sanguino board just as you would a normal Arduino board.
