Arduino program / sketch upload speeds
I am working on circuit that will allow me to program my Arduino boards (I have an Arduino Uno and a couple of Arduino Pro Minis) over a wireless Bluetooth connection. I am planning to use my cheap and easy to find HC-06 Bluetooth module for this. One of the first thing to figure out is the baud rate that the Arduino IDE uses, when uploading the sketches to the various Arduino boards. I need to make sure that my HC-06 Bluetooth module is configured to communicate at the same rate, so the avrdude stays happy.
I bit of research online revealed the following:
- On the computer side the baud rate is specified in the Arduino IDE configuration files, and more specifically in boards.txt.
- On the micro-controller side, the baud rate is coded in the specific bootloader, used by the board.
A looked through the boards.txt file and here is what I found:
|Arduino Pro Mini (5V, 16 MHz)||ATmega328p||57600|
|Arduino Pro or Pro Mini (3.3V, 8 MHz)||ATmega328p||57600|
It seems that I need to use 115200 for my Uno and 57600 for the Arduino Pro Mini.
