Changed lines 38-44 from:

For more information, see the guide to the Arduino environment.

3 | Install the USB drivers

If you are using a USB Arduino, you will need to install the drivers for the FTDI chip on the board. These can be found in the drivers directory of the Arduino distribution.

On Windows, you will need to unzip FTDI USB Drivers.zip. Then, when you plug in the Arduino board, point the Windows Add Hardware wizard to the FTDI USB Drivers directory.

to:

Para más información consultar la guía del entorno de desarrollo Arduino.

3 | Instalar los driver USB

Si estás empleando un Arduino USB necesitarás instalar los drivers para el procesador FTDI de la placa Arduino. If you are using a USB Arduino, you will need to install the drivers for the FTDI chip on the board. Estos se pueden encontrar en el directorio drivers de la distribución del IDE Arduino.

En Windows es necesario descomprimir el fichero FTDI USB Drivers.zip. Entonces, cuando conectes la placa arduino, dirígete al directorio FTDI USB Drivers cuando te lo solicite la herramienta de Windows Instalar Hardware.

Changed lines 47-48 from:

On the Mac, mount the FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_1_6.dmg (on PPC machines) or the FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_2_6_Intel.dmg (on Intel machines) disk image and run the included FTDIUSBSerialDriver.pkg.

to:

En Mac, monta el fichero de imagen FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_1_6.dmg (en los equipos PPC) o el FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_2_6_Intel.dmg (en los equipos Intel) y ejecuta el programa FTDIUSBSerialDriver.pkg.

Changed lines 51-60 from:

The latest version of the drivers can be found on the FTDI website.

4 | Connect the board

If you're using a serial board, power the board with an external power supply (6 to 25 volts DC, with the core of the connector positive). Connect the board to a serial port on your computer.

On the USB boards, the power source is selected by the jumper between the USB and power plugs. To power the board from the USB port (good for controlling low power devices like LEDs), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the USB plug. To power the board from an external power supply (needed for motors and other high current devices), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the power plug. Either way, connect the board to a USB port on your computer.

The power LED should go on.

to:

Es posible encontrar la última versión de estos drivers en la página web sobre FTDI.

4 | Conectar la placa

Si estás usando una placa con conexión de tipo Serie, debes conectar a la misma una fuente de alimentación externa (de 6 a 25 voltios de corriente contínua, con el positivo en el interior del conector). Ahora conecta la placa a un puerto serie de tu ordenador.

En las placas con conexión de tipo USB la fuente de alimentación (a través del conector USB o a través e una fuente externa) se selecciona mediante un puente colocado de forma adecuada en los pins localizados entre los conectores de alimentación y USB. Para alimentar la placa a través del puerto USB (lo ideal para controlar dispositivos de baja potencia como LEDs), coloca el puente entre los dos pins más cercanos al conector USB. Para alimentar la placa a través de una fuente externa (necesario para usar motores y otros dispositivos que requieren de mucha corriente), coloca el puente entre los dos pins más cercanos al conector de alimentación de la placa. En cualquier caso es necesario conectar la placa a un puerto USB del ordenador.

El led de alimentación debería encenderse.

Here's what the code for the LED blink example looks like.

Select the serial device of the Arduino board from the Tools | Serial Port menu. On Windows, this should be COM1 or COM2 for a serial Arduino board, or COM3, COM4, or COM5 for a USB board. On the Mac, this should be something like /dev/cu.usbserial-1B1 for a USB board, or something like /dev/cu.USA19QW1b1P1.1 if using a Keyspan adapter with a serial board (other USB-to-serial adapters use different names).

Push the reset button on the board then click the Upload button in the IDE. Wait a few seconds. If successful, the message "Done uploading." will appear in the status bar.
