Build Status

This is a Sanguino third-party hardware add-on for the Arduino IDE.

To use this add-on simply add the following url: to the Arduino boards manager. Please see the following page for more information:

Advanced users can install the hardware add-on manually by creating a folder named "hardware" inside your sketchbook directory. Now move the Sanguino directory inside that folder. The structure would look like this:

  • Arduino/
    • hardware/
      • Sanguino/
        • avr/
        • bootloaders/
        • variants/
        • boards.txt


It is also possible to use this add-on with PlatformIO. For instace you can use the Sanguino ATmega644 or ATmega644A running at 16 MHz by creating the following entry in your platformio.ini file:

platform = atmelavr
framework = arduino
board = sanguino_atmega644p

This will also allow you to specify the upload speed by adding the following entry:

upload_speed = 57600

This is needed if you have not burned the Optiboot bootloader.

The list of boards can be found here:


Since the ATmega1284 is not supported by Avrdude. You will have to burn the bootloader manually from the command line. See this file for help:
