We've been OK'd for a Kickstarter project to bring our BASIC to the Arduino Zero family of boards.

Kickstarter page, so check it out, we have a range of rewards available, most will bundle a Zero board with our BASIC. But you can also be part of the beta testers if you have an existing board, and get a copy of the firmware.

Here are the steps to load BASIC onto a Zero.

  • First download and install our BASICtools IDE
  • Next you need a tool to load binaries onto your Zero, We use the BOSSA app. Download and install that.
  • Join the Kickstarter community, it will cost you a buck. And we will email you the latest BASIC firmware binary, and save that.
  • Connect your Zero board to USB, and get it into download mode, by pushing the RESET button twice.
  • Run the BOSSA app

Bossa App screen

  • It should show you a serial port and select that.
  • Select the binary file we sent you.
  • Make sure you set the Flash offset to 0x2000
  • Push the Write button.
  • BASIC firmware is now installed, open BASICtools (there should be a shortcut on the desktop)

There is detailed documentation on the BASIC in the Help menu.
