Trouble with Arduino IDE v1.6.8

Posted 2016-06-02 15:14:24 by Majenko

Note: This problem was repaired in version 1.6.9 of Arduino IDE

The latest release of Arduino IDE (v1.6.8) has introduced a problem that prevents sketches from running on many chipKIT boards, in addition to some Arduino boards. It appears that any board using an FTDI chip for serial bootloader communications is adversely affected.

A temporary solution is to re-install the previous version, Arduino IDE v1.6.7, which has been well-tested and known to work fine with chipKIT-core selected in the Boards Manager. For more information about installing Arduino IDE and chipKIT-core, refer to the [chipKIT-core Wiki

microSD.png Did you know that a robust FAT file system is now available in chipKIT-core? Keith Vogel of Digilent recently ported the file system library by ChaN at You can use this library to create and access files on microSD cards, as shown in the photo above.

But wait... what is a FAT file system, anyway?

FAT stands for File Allocation Table. It's a method of organizing data on disk drives. Designed way back in 1977, FAT
