Hey ok so I'm just trying to get this thing going. I installed the drivers, arduino software and also code breaker. In the arduino software I am simply trying out the blink program, it downloads ok- lights blinking to show it is but then when it's done there is no blinking and the screen in blank. What am I missing?

Hi Doomcuroe,

The default Arduino's blink will not run on MicroView because MicroView does not have an LED connected to D13. You can add a LED and 330 ohm resistor to D3 and change the Blink sketch's led pin to 3 or alternatively you can use the display to blink.

If you have codebender, please click the link below to run

or cut and paste the code below to your Arduino IDE.
Code: Select all
#include <MicroView.h>
	MicroView Blink
	Draw a circle for one second, then off for one second, repeatedly.
	This example code is in the public domain.
// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {                

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
	delay(1000);               // wait for a second

	delay(1000);               // wait for a second
