Do I Need Drivers?

Driver Compatibility: Make sure that the driver for the CH340 is up to date; the serial-to-UART chip may require the latest driver to operate properly. For instructions for updating your driver, please refer to the tutorial below.

Some of our development boards utilize a WCH CH340C or CH340G UART-to-serial chip. A driver should not be required for Mac OSX, Linux, Windows 10; however, we do have a driver installation tutorial available for users.

How to Install CH340 Drivers

August 6, 2019

How to install CH340 drivers (if you need them) on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

The rest of our development boards utilize an NXP interface chip with DAPLink. A driver is not required for Mac OSX, Linux, Windows 10; however, there is a serial port driver available for Windows 7 (only), which is provided by Mbed™. Further instructions and details on installing the serial port driver can be found in the Mbed™ OS documentation.

(*As the Mbed™ OS documentation is continually updated, so are the links. Therefore, users may find it useful to look under the Tutorials > Serial Communication section of the (updated) Mbed™ OS documentation for the serial port driver information.)
