USB UART | Cypress Semiconductor
Hey Bob, seems like its you and me recently.
I apologise if this has been asked hundres of times but I have looked at the examples and data sheet and I did see a simple tutorial a while ago and cannot remember where I saw it.
I am wanting to use USB UART to connect my project to PC. I dropped the component on the worksheet and based a simple application based on the example in Creator (receives USB data and sends back to PC, I remobed the LCD portion).
When I plug into my PC, I see USB UART appear under ports in devices dialog with the yellow warning.
I downloaded a driver for windows and found Windows 8 dll and ran the install for the driver but still does not install the driver.
I am sure there is some obvious step I have glossed over setting up the component or installing the driver. If I can set it up as HID device then maybe I don't need to install specific driver, would be good if it uses windows standard drivers.
