Adding Arduino Board to Simhub
Hi, to Wotever and to all the guys in the forum, thanks for this fantastic software, unfortunately I find myself asking for help here, because I recently bought some cards on Aliexpress, designed by the normal Arduino Uno R3, while they are WAVGAT Uno R3, not compatible if I select Arduino Uno ARMega32u8p in the Sketch Setup, in fact it stops in the middle, even downloading the library for the card on the site:
as it does not appear in the list of Simhub, and if I try using IDE, many errors appear and the compilation of the card is not successful, so I wonder, is there a way to add this card directly to SimHub? I'm not able to, thanks a lot 😀
I forgot to include the link to the board:
is recognized by windows as USB-SERIAL CH340
I'm afraid such non standard boards is not possible to add. For maintainability purpose adding custom boards would be really a source of troubles in the future (incompatibilities ...) .
I'm really surprised that such boards exists, there are so many clones 100% totally compatible with arduino UNO, I don't know how WAVGAT achieved to build such "frankenstein" 😀
I admit the product page is clearly misleading and should not mention "UNO R3" as it's not fully compatible with this standard.
NB : I searched why even having the same MCU (ATMega328p) there are compilation errors, this repo gives a part of the answer : https://github.com/WAVGAT-SZ/Arduino-WavGat-Drivers , the definition of the board is outdated (This person achieved to make a partial update, but it's still incomplete and so it's not enough to build the sketch properly sadly).
Thank you so much for the answer, I feared the incompatibility of the cards, even using their libraries, it was impossible to compile, a strange thing with the arduino duemilanove, it is compiled, but always in a fake way, because once finished it is not recognized anyway from simhub.
