To learn more about using the Pololu A-Star boards, see the following list of resources:
- The Arduino IDE has many examples that can run on the A-Stars.
- The Arduino website has a Language Reference, a wiki called the The Arduino Playground, and other resources.
- The A-Star boards are similar to the Arduino Leonardo and Arduino Micro, so you can search the Internet for relevant projects that use one of those boards.
- Atmel’s ATmega32U4 documentation has the ATmega32U4 datasheet and many related documents.
- AVR Libc Home Page: this page documents the standard library of functions that you can use with GNU C and C++ compilers for the AVR.
- A-Star 32U4 Arduino library
- AStar32U4 library documentation
- LUFA – the Lightweight USB Framework for AVRs
- Microchip Studio for AVR and SAM Devices
