If you don’t already know, Arduino boards use the FTDI chip for USB communication. The CH340G chip, a great new alternative to the FTDI chip, is gaining more and more popularity, and many of you,-makers and inventors out there-, already carry a board with this chip.
So what do we have for you?
After extensive research combined with your feedback, we found that our Chrome app was causing some problems between your board and the Serial monitor.
Until now, if the data that the Serial monitor received from your board was more than 10 messages per second, the connection with the Serial monitor was lost and you received an error message displaying that codebender couldn’t administer with such a fast data transfer rate.
We developed, tested, collected feedback from our Beta testers, did some final refinements to make sure everything works as it should, and we finally released our New Editor!!
So what’s new?
Our New Editor allows you to resize the coding area, just by pressing a button (4),and provides you with a better workspace.
Do you own a Mac and an Arduino board with the FTDI chip, the most widely used chip in Arduino devices for USB communication? Then you probably know that Apple’s default drivers for FTDI on Yosemite weren’t working correctly. You had to manually download them from FTDI chip site and install them.
You have spent hours and hours to see your project being materialized. From the very first idea, until the compilation of your code. Verification was successful and now it’s time to upload your code in your board and get things moving.
The only thing you don’t need is to lose more time, trying to find your board between our 82 (!!) supported boards list…
