Spark Fun Artemis Black ATP Boards

I just installed a Spark Fun Artemis Black, ATP board to replace the Arduino Mega in my project. The first sketch I tried would not compile and gave me this error: "no matching function for call to 'RoboClaw(SoftwareSerial* int)' The same sketch compiled just fine for the Arduino Mega 2560. This is the pertinent section of the code:

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
#include "RoboClaw.h"

SoftwareSerial serial(10,11);
RoboClaw roboclaw(&serial,10000);

It seems the Artemis does not handle the RoboClaw library. Any fixes?

Thank you.

M<y guess is it is complaining about the software serial object. The Artemis appears to be an ARM based product. As far as I know, NO ARM arduino compatibles have a working software serial library. You will need to use hardware serial ports instead.

Have a look at this application note: ... o-library/

Note that the names of the harware serial ports might be different on the Artemis. You'll have to look in the documentation for the names.
