Get Started

Congrats on your purchase of a FortyTwo Systems board! Here’s some info on how to get started:

  • Unbox your board.

  • Plug in your board to a USB-B cable (the kind that usually comes with your printer)

  • A green LED should light up, and a yellow LED should slowly fade in and out. This indicates that the board is in bootloader mode and ready to accept your code.

  • Follow the steps on the Arduino IDE page to load code onto your board.

Here’s some tips to make sure your baord stays safe:

  • Make sure you always handle the board by its edges. This will protect the sensitive electronics on the board.

  • Never plug in the board while it is on a conductive surface or touching anything metal. This will destroy your board.
