Problem with serial port and Arduino IDE [SOLVED]


(Krists) #1

I have following problem:

I have followed all instructions (https://static.dev.sifive.com/dev-kits/hifive1/hifive1-getting-started-v1.0.2.pdf) (15. page). I have tried several usb ports, I reinstalled Arduino IDE. I tried all settings. I tried all serial ports. I even connected Arduino uno and it worked instantly (after changing back correct compiler and other things)

I am using latest Arduino IDE on Ubuntu 19.04 and I have HiFive1 Rev B. (RGB led demo program is working)

Does anybody know how to solve problem? Do I have defective unit? Please help

Edit: I red documentation for older board. HiFive1 Rev B doesn’t support Arduino IDE. Only options are Freedom Studio and command line tool.

Those are not the correct instructions for the HiFive1 Rev B.

The correct instructions (as I just googled for) are https://sifive.cdn.prismic.io/sifive%2F8d7b8385-64e3-4914-8608-8568412c8aae_hifive1b-getting-started-guide.pdf

It’s also linked from the HiFive1 Rev B product page https://www.sifive.com/boards/hifive1-rev-b
