Wireless upload program to Arduino without USB cable

Picture of Wireless upload program to Arduino without USB cable

Arduino Wireless Programmer is designed for upload the program from your PC/laptop to Arduino board just by Bluetooth.

So now you can update the program to Arduino boards which enclosed in the box or case without any usb jack, do you need to open it times and times when you need to update the program. It will suitable for the project which use Arduino board but the the boards aloft. Anyway , when you want to do the wireless programming for Arduino without USB cable, this Arduino Wireless Programmer will be the good choice.

But becareful that it maybe not compatible with some projects which need to use the D0 and D1 as hardware UART TX, RX. Because the wireless programmer needs to permanently occupy the two pins. For the rest pins, the wireless programmer board has the stackable female header to make it compatible with other shileds, you can just plug any shields you need onto the wireless programmer and connect it to Arduino mainboard.

And Arduino Wireless Programmer have 2 models: For Arduino UNO and For Arduino Duemilanove. Different model comes with different configuration, and just support the corresponding mainboard – Of course your can change the default configuration to make it work with other boards, and we will release these hack tutorials later.

Step 1: Wireless upload program to Arduino without USB cable

Download Arduino IDE. ( don’t use the Arduino 00xx ) Download the “rxtxserial.dll” file here, and replace the one in your Arduino IDE Folder.

Open Bluetooth device and add a device. After finding a Bluetooth device, you should choose “Enter the device’s pairing code”. The default PIN code is “1234”. Open Bluetooth device and choose the device. Click the right button of the mouse and select “properties”.

Step 2: Wireless upload program to Arduino without USB cable

Open Arduino IDE. Select “Tools->Board->Arduino Duemilanove w/Atmega328” or "Arduino UNO"

And Select “Tools->Serial Port->COMX (the serial port of the bluetooth)”.

Open your program on Arduino IDE, and press the “upload” button to upload it to IBoard.

I've completed a project that uses Arduino to create a music visualizer. If I am using Standard Firmata and then running a script in real-time through Processing 2 will this setup?

* will this setup work?

Hi cant find the dll

Here is a how-to I wrote that's more up-to-date and has instructions for building the shield yourself: http://makezine.com/projects/diy-arduino-bluetoot...

If you use the latest Arduino IDE beta, you don't need to mess with dlls.
