If you have a device based on the CH340 USB to UART converter, follow these instructions for driver installation. So, let's go!

3. Follow the installation instructions
4. After the installation, it is recommended to restart the computer.
5. You are ready to use it!

Checking the properly installed drivers can be done in the Device Manager (right click on My Computer, then Properties, and Device Manager). Under Ports (COM &LPT) check if you have something similar to the image below.

MacOS

1. Download the drivers here.
2. If you use any version of MacOs other than Sierra - install the version v1.3 named CH34x_Install_V1.3.pkg. If you use MacOS Sierra, install the version v1.4 named CH34x_Install_V1.4.pkg.
3. Follow the installation instructions.
4. Restart the computer.

Checking the properly installed drivers can be made by entering the command "ls /dev/tty.*" to the terminal, where the line "/dev/tty.wchusbserial....." should appear - like in the image below, but with different numbers and letters.

Linux

Linux, as usual, already comes with drivers for the CH340. Just plug the device into your Linux computer and you are ready to use it.

You can check this by entering the command  "ls dev/tty.USB*" in the Terminal, where the line  "dev/tty.USB0" should appear, as in the image below.
