Simplest USB GPIO output with Arduino Pro Micro.
There is no input function. It can be easily added, but I didn't need it.
How to use it
The device appears as a USB-serial ttyACMx. Write characters to it. Everything works in character mode. There's no harm in sending CRLF, these are discarded with no reply.
- Uppercase letters turn GPIOs on, their lowercase counterparts turn them off.
- Valid commands return the same character back. Unknown commands return "?".
- "0" turns all off, "1" turns all on. This is handy if you need just one signal, or want to shut everything down.
Mapping - see the X-table in main.c
GPIOs on the pro micro board are like so:
A D3 ---(usb)--- raw B D2 gnd gnd rst gnd vcc C D1 F4 R D D0 F5 Q E D4 F6 P F C6 F7 O G C7 B1 N H E6 B3 M I B4 B2 L J B5 ------------ B6 K top view
The left LED blinks on activity, right LED blinks with ~5s interval to indicate operation.
Hook this up to a SSR or LEDs or whatever that needs switching on and off. All GPIOs on the board are accessible.
Remember: Max current per pin is 10mA, max total current is 150mA. It can take a bit more, but it's not recommended. Use transistors or driver IC if needed.
This is a firmware for Arduino Pro Micro ("Leonardo"), using ATMEGA32U4.
It can be ported to any AVR that's supported by LUFA.
To compile it, download the LUFA library and update LUFA_PATH in Makefile.
The exact version I used is 2021-01-30: http://www.github.com/abcminiuser/lufa/archive/LUFA-210130.zip
Run "make all" to build everything, or "make hex" to build only the elf and hex.
use avr-gcc and avrdude, flash with "make flash".
How to enter bootloader
This board is old and dumb, there is no reset button and the bootloader often fails to start.
To go into BOOT, tap the RST button twice (if there is a button), or touch a wire from GND to RST twice within a second. I don't know how this works, maybe the bootloader disables the reset function temporarily.
This trick sometimes doesn't work. Also, there is a timeout, then it exits bootloader by itself.
