The next step is to install the hardware profile for the SODAQ SARA boards. The SARA AFF/SFF 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 SARA boards 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 and install the correct driver. In this case please follow the procedure below to install drivers manually:
It also can be advisable to download the FTDI drivers from here: FTDI Drivers.
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, COM8, 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 Wio Link board. The associated communication port is only visible in that list when the SODAQ SARA Link board is connected
