CH340 USB Drivers

USB Drivers

The Dr.Duino comes with an arduino uno clone. So what does that mean, well... its awesome as it has a bunch of extra features that an original Arduino uno does not. 

1) My personal favorite, all the Digital IO is broken out so that you can directly solder on to them if needed.

2) You have access to some extra 5V and Ground pins that you can solder to.

However, it does use a different USB to Serial converter than an original Arduino Uno does.

This Arduino Uno Clone uses the CH340 chipset but don't worry aside from it being a different driver, its pretty transparent in its operation.

Without further a do... here are the drivers

Windows:

Mac

Please note, I myself have never tried these drivers. However, from the research I've done, these look like the correct ones.

This driver appears to work on these versions of the OS. If in doubt, please go directly to the manufactuers website and download from there.

Mac OSX Drivers

  • v10.10.5 (Yosemite)
  • v10.11.6 (El Capitan)
  • v10.13.0 (High Sierra)
  • v10.14.5 (Mojave)

Link to WCH website is below. 

If you are feeling brave and you want the latest and greatest drivers ( I don't think you'll need it, but you never know), you can find them here.

After you install the drivers, you should see the a new com port appear in the tools menu of the arduino IDE under ports.

Easy peasy :)
