Step1: Install Arduino Software
Download software from
Then you can read how to install form here
step2: Install dricers
If you are using windows, follow the instruction here
you will need to install the driver.
As we have Arduino Pro Micro, please also install the Pro micro driver from here >> https://github.com/sparkfun/SF32u4_boards/archive/master.zip
After you download the file, unzip it and place the whole folder on
The older board (i.e. Arduino Duemilanove) needs FTDI driver.
You can download it from here
Then follow these instructions to install.
mac >> http://arduino.cc/en/guide/macOSX
read “3 | Install the Software” part
read “4 | Install the drivers”, Installing drivers for the Arduino Duemilanove, Nano, or Diecimila with Windows7, Vista, or XP:
step3: Open Blink sketch on software
Open Blink example sketch from File/Examples/Basic/Blink
If you have Pro Micro, change
int led = 13;
int led =9;
Place Pro Micro on the breadboard, add LED on pin 9 (Anode) and GND (Cathode)

step4: Upload the sketch to Arduino
Select the Arduino kind you are using from Tools/Board
If you are using Pro Micro, make sure you choose “Sparkfun Pro Micro”
There are 3.3V 8MHz and 5V 16MHz
What we have today is 3.3V 8MHz
Select the the port your Arduino is connected to, from Tools/Serial Port
click the arrow button and upload the sketch to Arduino
step5: Yey! it is blinking!!
Is your on-board LED (LED connected to pin 13) blinking?
