The next steps will guide you during the installation of the hardware profile for the SODAQ Mbili board. The Mbili board profile is available through the Arduino Boards Manager. In order to install the board files you will need to first add the SODAQ board manager URL.
The Arduino IDE will now have the SODAQ Mbili board added to the list found in the menu under tools >board. You simply need to select that hardware profile as the board that the Arduino IDE will use.
On Windows it could occur that your system doesn’t not automatically find the correct driver it is advisable to download the FTDI drivers from here:.
On Mac and Linux you do not have to install extra drivers.
The FTDI driver adds a communication port. In Windows this is COMx (so COM1, COM6, etc.). On Linux and Mac the port name starts with /dev/tty. You can find the list of available serial ports in the menu under Tools->Port:
You must select the communication port associated with the SODAQ Mbili board. The associated communication port is only visible in that list when the SODAQ Mbili board is connected and switched on (using `SW2, as indicated on the image below). If you are unsure which is the correct port simply check what new port has been added after you switch the device on.
