Amici 1.0 q

We updated Amici to Arduino 1.0 and fixed some bugs that we found during a workshop with kids!

So, what’s new in Amici 1.0 q:

  • based on Arduino 1.0
  • using an actuator on a PWM-port (Pin 9, 10 or 11) looks better now – use the on-(or off-) button to display the power value
  • further bugs fixed

Suggestions are welcome!


edit (09/11/12):
please note: the Java folder was missing in the Windows version so that you might have had problems launching Amici on your Windows Computer (esp. Windows7). This has been fixed now, so please download again :-)

Driver installation:
Before you can upload your projects onto your Arduino board, you may need to install FTDI-USB drivers on your computer. Please see for Mac and for Windows instructions.
