Reaper 1 - Setup Instructions

In order to get Reaper 1 working with the Arduino IDE, the board definition must be added to boards.txt.  These instructions assume that the Arduino IDE is already installed on your system.  If you have any issues, then please visit the support forum and create a new topic.

Step 1: Find the boards.txt file

Mac OS

  1. Open the Applications folder.
  2. Right-click on Arduino and click "Show Package Contents".
  3. Find the boards.txt file: Contents > Resources > Java > hardware > arduino > boards.txt. 

Windows

  1. Open the "Program Files" folder (C:\Program Files).
  2. Open the Arduino folder.
  3. Find the boards.txt file: hardware > arduino > avr > boards.txt.

Step 2: Add board definition

Copy and paste the following text at the end of the boards.txt file and save.

low328.name=Reaper 1

low328.upload.protocol=arduino
low328.upload.maximum_size=30720
low328.upload.speed=57600
low328.upload.tool=avrdude

low328.bootloader.low_fuses=0x62
low328.bootloader.high_fuses=0xDA
low328.bootloader.extended_fuses=0x05
low328.bootloader.path=atmega
low328.bootloader.file=ATmegaBOOT_168_atmega328_low.hex
low328.bootloader.unlock_bits=0x3F
low328.bootloader.lock_bits=0x0F

low328.build.mcu=atmega328p
low328.build.f_cpu=1865000L
low328.build.core=arduino
low328.build.variant=standard

Step 3: Verify

  1. Open/restart the Arduino IDE.
  2. Verify that "Reaper 1" has been added to the list of boards by clicking on Tools > Board.
