If you own a device that has the CH340 or CH341 USB to Serial chip to communicate with your mac and after updating to version 10.11.2 (El Capitan) your board is suddenly not detected, please download the updated drivers.
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?
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.
After a long and sunny summer here in Greece, let us remind you of our additions and updates for the last 2 months.
We made the on-boarding process even easier, quicker and friendlier. Read More.
We updated the driver installation procedure. Read More.
We updated our plug in in order to resolve some issues. Read More.
Do you remember all the steps you had to take, in order to get Windows to install our drivers?
Well that’s history now!
We registered our browser plugin & our Arduino drivers installer with Microsoft, and Windows will stop bothering you in order to accept our software. So if you are especially a Windows 8 & 8.1 user, you can feel relieved at last!
