The Arduino Leonardo can be programmed with the EZB firmware for various capabilities when connected to ARC. Find the firmware below. The tutorial to program the EZB firmware can be found HERE. This firmware works with ARC versions greater or equal to 2019.06.25.00.

* Connection Notes *

Due to an undocumented bug feature (?), the Arduino Leonardo's USB, the serial driver, requires DTR Enabled to trigger received data events. This can be done by viewing the Connection Config screen (the same place you set the baud rate) and checking DTR Enabled checkbox.

Arduino Firmware

In the meantime, download the Arduino firmware below. You can program on the Arduino Leonardo. Adding this firmware lets you connect ARC to the Arduino via USB and directly control the GPIO.

Pinouts

The Digital pins can be used for PWM, servos, and digital on/off. The ADC ports are 0-5 for analog input. Digital pin 0 is Uart #0 RX, and digital pin 1 is Uart #0 TX. Verify the pins in the image below.

PWM pins may also vary based on the board type.
