Compatible Hardware

The following Arduino models have a tight integration with Embrio. Compiling and uploading is done very fast and provides feedback via the visual connection control.

Embrio Arduino connection toolbar

  • Arduino BT
  • Arduino Due
  • Arduino Duemilanove or Diecimila
  • Arduino Ethernet
  • Arduino Fio
  • Arduino/Genuino Uno
  • Arduino Mega or Mega 2560
  • Arduino Mega ADK
  • Arduino Mini
  • Arduino Nano
  • Arduino Pro or Pro Mini

Use Arduino IDE Settings

If you can upload to a board through the Arduino IDE you should be able to connect to it with Embrio. Follow these steps:

  • Upload a program to your board using the Arduino IDE, like the Blink example program.
  • Close the Arduino IDE. This is important as it saves the application settings.
  • In the Embrio connection toolbar select the “Use Arduino IDE Settings” checkbox.

Now when uploading to the Arduino Embrio will call the Arduino IDE and tell it to use the last settings it used. This method takes a bit longer but should work with any Arduino compatible device.
