Sanguino For Windows

Install Arduino Software

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

First, you'll need to install the Arduino software.

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 Sanguino folders

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

For arduino-0018 and newer:

  • copy /sanguino to arduino-0018/hardware/ You should end up with arduino-0018/hardware/sanguino/

For arduino-0012

  • copy sanguino-software-1.x/cores/sanguino to arduino-0012/hardware/cores/sanguino
  • copy sanguino-software-1.x/bootloaders/atmega644p to arduino-0012/hardware/bootloaders/atmega644p
  • copy all the folders in sanguino-software-1.x/libraries/ to arduino-0012/hardware/libraries/ overwriting the existing libraries.

Edit boards.txt

This is only for arduino-0012 or older

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.

If you open the file in Notepad, it will look like crap. Use a decent file editor like Notepad++

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.
