is it possible to upload a sketch with a FTDI Breakout Board to the Arduino Micro?
I’m planing a PCB which host the arduino micro, and I would like upload sketches without using the USB connector. So I thought its should be possible to connect the FDTI pins like this:
FTDI breakout < – > Arduino Micro
GND – GND
VCC – VIN
TX – RX
RX – TX
DTR – Reset
CTS – not connected
But I’m always get the error code
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
Anyone got an idea or suggestion? I’m also very interested if anyone could get me a suggestion if it could work or not. Is it possible to upload a sketch to a Arduino with the use of a FTDI Breakout Board or another Arduino?
Anyway, I know I could use the USB connector which got a on board FDTI chip connected to the atmega. But I’m looking for a way not to use it.
Thanks for help folks
