Seeeduino Nano

The Seeeduino Nano is a compact board similar to the Seeeduino V4.2/Arduino UNO, and it is fully compatible with Arduino Nano on pinout and sizes.

The same as Seeedunio V4.2, Seeeduino Nano is built around Atmega328P -- 8-bit AVR microcontroller. So you can use the same program code on both boards. However, the dimensions of the two are significantly different. Less than a quarter of the size, but with almost the same features, Seeeduino Nano will save more space for your project, more suitable for space-constrained scenes.

The Seeeduino Nano offers the same features and high-quality experience as the Arduino Nano in less than half the price. On the other hand, the Seeeduino Nano has also made the following improvements compared to the Arduino Nano. 1-Change the Mini-USB into Type-C, which is symmetrical and reversible. 2- Add one Grove I2C connector, with the help Grove system, you can play with hundreds of sensors and actuators simply by plugging.

One more thing, we know that only one on-board Grove connector may not be enough, so we made this Grove shield for Arduino Nano, which has 3 Grove digital connectors, 3 Grove analog connectors, 1 Grove I2C connector, and 1 Grove UART connector.

Hardware Overview

Attention

The I2C interface is not equipped with a pull-up resistor. It is recommended to use a 4.7k resistor to pull up to VCC when using it.

Power

Instead of supply power by the Type C port, you can also use the VIN and GND pins to power Seeeduino Nano. Then input range of VIN is 7V ~ 12 V.

The max power parameter

Item Value
The max. input circurt of USB Type C 2A
The max. output circurt of VCC 1A
The max. output circurt of 3V3 pin 200mA

Getting Started

Hardware

Materials required

  • Seeeduino Nano x1
  • Computer x1
  • USB typc cable x1

Tip

Some USB cables can only supply power and cannot transfer data. If you don't have a usb cable or don't know if your usb cable can transmit data, you can check seeed USB type C support USB 3.1 .

Connect the Seeeduino Nano to your computer using the USB cable. The blue power LED (labelled PWR) should light on.

Software

  • Step 1. You need to Install an Arduino Software.

Launch the Arduino application

Double-click the Arduino application (arduino.exe) you have previously downloaded.

Note

If the Arduino Software loads in a different language, you can change it in the preferences dialog. See the Arduino Software (IDE) page for details.

  • Step 2. Open the Blink example
    Open the LED blink example sketch: File > Examples >01.Basics > Blink.
Figure 9. Blink Path
  • Step 3. Add the Seeed Board
    Please follow the Seeed Board Intallation Guide and serch the key word Seeeduino AVR to add the Seeeduino Nano into your Arduino IDE.
Figure 10. The key word is **Seeeduino Nano**

Tip

When you install the Seeeduino AVR board, please make sure to select the Version 1.2.1 or above.

  • Step 4. Select your board and port
    You'll need to select the entry in the Tools > Board menu that corresponds to your Arduino. Selecting a Seeeduino Nano.
Figure 11. Choose the right board

Select the serial device of the Arduino board from the Tools | Serial Port menu. This is likely to be COM3 or higher (COM1 and COM2 are usually reserved for hardware serial ports). To find out, you can disconnect your Arduino board and re-open the menu; the entry that disappears should be the Arduino board. Reconnect the board and select that serial port.

Figure 12. Choose the right port
  • Step 5.Upload the program
    Now, simply click the "Upload" button in the environment. Wait a few seconds and if the upload is successful, the message "Done uploading." will appear in the status bar.
Figure 13. Upload the code

A few seconds after the upload finishes, you should see the pin 13 (L) LED on the board start to blink (in orange). If it does, congratulations! You've gotten Arduino up-and-running. If you have problems, please see the troubleshooting suggestions.
