Introduction: Arduberry LED Blink

The Arduberry is a simple and inexpensive way to bring Arduino shields to the Raspberry Pi. The device is a shield that slides over the Raspberry Pi and allows you to stack and use Arduino shields. The Arduberry requires no physical configuration to work with most shields. You can write Arduino sketches (programs) right on your Raspberry Pi.

Blink is the simplest Arduberry example project. This example will show you how to blink an LED connected to the Arduberry.

Step 1: ​Parts Needed

  1. Raspberry Pi
  2. Arduberry
  3. A LED
  4. A 330 ohm resistor
  5. Breadboard
  6. Jumper wires

Step 2: Connect the LED

In this step we will wire up the LED using a breadboard. Insert a 330-ohm resistor on a breadboard and connect it to pin 13 on the Arduberry. Attach the long leg of an LED (the positive leg, called the anode) to the resistor. Attach the short leg (the negative leg, called the cathode) to ground using a jumper wire.

Step 3: Start the Raspberry Pi

Power on the Raspberry Pi with the Arduberry connected to it and open the Arduino program

Step 4: Run the Blink Sketch

Open the Blink example in Examples folder (Examples ->01.Basics->Blink) and change the programmer to RaspberryPi GPIO (Tools ->Programmer) and press Ctrl +Alt +U to upload the program (Upload using Programmer).

The LED will start blinking.
