Hi, So I've got a little project that needs an atmega32u4. Because I'm a cheap I bought a chinese arduino, I guess pro micro, clone. Specifically, this osoyoo.
Okay so first of all, plugged into my mac every LED on the board turns on and stays on. That's two red LEDs and a green one.
Now, for my project I just need the bootloader burned onto the chip. I... have no idea how to do this. I tried using the arduino IDE, which recognizes the board as a Genuino Micro, but trying to burn the bootloader using the arduino IDE interface just gives me nothing more than "error burning bootloader" message.
I'm not a big microcontroller user. I don't know what the hell is going on. I need help.
Also, as a corollary, do any of you use the dfu-programmer thing?
If I run a command like
make -f Makefile dfu
and then get the output
sh: dfu-programmer: command not found sh: dfu-programmer: command not found -n dfu-programmer: waiting -n . -n .
Can anyone tell me what's going on? I have literally not a clue.
Thanks. I'd really appreciate help on this.
