    Development

    Hi guys, I have been using the Arduino Pro Mini/Nano/Raw Atmega328 in embedded projects because it is so small, however I am running out of memory (Flash and RAM) as my program gets bigger.

    I am trying to find a suitable replacement and wanted to know how easy is it to program the Teensy v3.1 ? What tools would I need?

    Many thanks

    Simple: you need a recent version of Arduino: 1.0.6, or 1.6.x... Then you need to download teensyduino (http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/teensyduino.html)

    Then you simply choose Teensy 3.1 as your board.

    Many thanks. In the meantime I have gone and bought a few "Maple Mini STM32" this is another upgrade path from the Arduino Pro Mini. Maybe I will also buy the Teensy 3.1 and compare.

    If you are coming from the ATMega328 then you may only need to get the Teensy LC (lower cost). It's still a significant upgrade with clock at 4x program, ram and eeprom are also quite a bit larger, but not quite as large as the 3.1. It may be all you need.

    Yes, please do.

    I'm pretty sure you'll find Teensy 3.1 has better compatibility with most Arduino sketches and libraries.
