Introduction: Get Started With Arduino Nano
Arduino Nano is one of the avaible Arduino board models. Has a small size, complete feature, and easy to use.
Have a size 1.70 Inch x 0.7 Inch, Arduino nano has a complete feature, such as: Atmel ATmega 328 IC, Restar button, 4 indikator LEDs, 3V3 Regulator, USB to Serial, Port I/O, etc.
For a more complete port configuration, see the picture above (figure 2 and 3).
Step 1: Install Arduino IDE
Arduino IDE is used to write and upload sketch to the Arduino board. If you haven't installed it yet, you can see in my previous article about How to Install the Arduino IDE on Windows 10.
Step 2: Required Components
Required components :
- Arduino Nano
- Mini USB
Step 3: Selec the Board That Is Used
Open Arduino IDE > Tools.
Board: "Arduino Nano"
Processor: "Atmega 328P (Old Bootloader)" ===> if an error occurs, select another option.
Port: "COM4" ===> according to the USB port you are using.
Step 4: Open and Upload Sketch
Open the LED blink example sketch: File > Examples > 01.Basics > Blink.
To upload the program. Click the upload button. Wait for a moment - During the upload process, the RX and TX LEDs will flashing. If the upload is successful, the message "Done uploading" will appear in thr status bar.
Step 5: Results
The result is a red LED on Arduino will blink like the video above. I use this method to make sure the Arduino board can be used. And ready to be used to make amazing projects.

Question 2 years ago on Step 3
I can't select a port, how do I fix this? I have two ports and one has a wireless mouse, and the other has the USB connected to the Arduino.
