yP a d ? 3 0 S E C O N D I N T R O • Sewable form factor micro-controller. (Can even be washed!) • Equivalent to an Arduino Uno (and is oﬃcially blessed by Arduino LLC). • First of its kind, designed by Leah Buechley in 2007 in collaboration with SparkFun. • ~$22 Image credit: arduino.cc
l yP a d ? G E T T I N G S TA R T E D, Q U I C K O V E R V I E W 1. Download and install the Arduino IDE • arduino.cc/downloads 2. Plug in the ProtoSnap LilyPad via USB & FTDI 3. Conﬁgure the Arduino IDE* Tools > Board > Arduino Uno Tools > Serial Port > /dev/tty.usbmodemXXXXX (Mac) or COMX (Windows) 4. Open up the Blink sketch Check the USB thumbdrive for: LilyPad > [Code Repo] LilyPad ProtoSnap > 01.Basics > BlinkBuiltInLED > *.ino 5. Upload the sketch * If you’re having any trouble seeing the LilyPad, you might not have the FTDI Drivers installed properly. Try restarting the Arduino IDE or re-download the drivers: ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

N E X T S T E P S 1. Follow along with the “ArduinoCoding.pdf” handout. ProtoSnap-friendly example sketches can be found on USB thumb drive (LilyPad > [Code Repo] LilyPad ProtoSnap) or download from github.com/pchen/ArduinoLilyPadProtoSnap 2. Re-ﬂash the default/shipped ProtoSnap code: On USB thumb drive (LilyPad > Default > lilypad_dev_v11 > *.ino) or download from sparkfun.com/datasheets/DevTools/LilyPad/lilypad_dev_v11.pde 3. Try any of the Sparkfun ProtoSnap examples: On USB thumb drive (LilyPad > SparkFun_ProtoSnap_Sketches.zip) or download from cdn.sparkfun.com/assets/resources/1/7/SparkFun_ProtoSnap_Sketches.zip 4. Open and upload any of the sketches.
y p i n g U S I N G T H E L I LY PA D F O R : • Ideal for soft-circuit prototypes. • Use alligator clips (or just twist wire onto the pads) to test ﬁrst circuit designs. • Large ecosystem of LilyPad accessories/modules available: Battery holders, LEDs, buttons and switches, buzzer speaker, vibe motor, light sensor, temperature sensor, accelerometer, etc. • Huge # of tutorials and projects available so you never have start from scratch.
