Installing the Board Add-Ons and Drivers

Note: This code/library has been written and tested on Arduino IDE version v1.8.8. Otherwise, make sure you are using the latest stable version of the Arduino IDE on your desktop. If this is your first time using Arduino, please review our tutorial on installing the Arduino IDE.

There are a few board add-ons to install before you are able to upload code to your RedBoard Turbo. If you have not already, make sure to check out the RedBoard Turbo's hookup guide to install the SAMD21 and SparkFun board add-ons.


The RedBoard Turbo is now easier than ever to program, thanks the UF2 bootloader. With this bootloader, the RedBoard Turbo shows up on your computer as a USB storage device without having to install drivers for Windows 10, Mac, and Linux!

However, if you are using a Windows 7 OS, you will need to install SAMD drivers. Head to the RedBoard Turbo's hookup guide for more information about installing drivers for Windows 7.
