Arduino STAR OTTO - first setting and how to upload code

Maybe you read about a new board by STMicroelectronics and - Arduino STAR OTTO
Arduino compatible board with STM32F469 microcontroller.

In this article I describe you how to set your laptop, arduino IDE and how to upload your code to Arduino STAR - OTTO - OS Linux Mint.

At first, download Arduino IDE by

After the installation, you have to add *.rules file for dfu-util.
Use this script by Arturo Rinaldi for creating of rules for Arduino IDE.
Download which is available on github

Then, follow these commands
$ chmod +x
$ ./ YourUserName

Thanks Arturo Rinaldi for script and support.

Create 40-dfuse.rules file.
Copy this code to file:

# Example udev rules (usually placed in /etc/udev/rules.d)
# Makes STM32 DfuSe device writeable for the "plugdev" group

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0483", ATTRS{idProduct}=="df11", MODE="664", GROUP="plugdev"

Copy 40-dfuse.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/
sudo cp /PathOfFile/40-dfuse.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/

Follow these commands

sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
sudo udevadm trigger

Reboot your laptop

Run IDE by and install the support for Arduino STAR - OTTO, go to Tools -> Board -> Boards manager, find Arduino STAR OTTO install it.

For uploading of your code you can use two ways. Through OTA (Over The Air) or through Serial.

Through Serial Tools -> Port

Use example code like blinking of LED. Choose right port. After uploading, LD13 will blink.

Programming through OTA.

At first, connect Arduino STAR - OTTO to power, connect your laptop to WiFi Access Point Arduino-Star-Otto
Write this IP address to web browser

Find your WiFi on website and write password of your WiFI network. You will see new IP address of Arduino STAR - OTTO.

On the right side of website click to Switch to STA mode buton

After automatic restart of Arduino STAR - OTTO you can see erro message. Don't worry.

Connect your laptop to your home internet network and write new IP address of Arduino STAR - OTTO to web browser. You see that is in STA mode, that's OK.
