Just built the EmonTX, all seems to have gone fine with that so I thought i'd squirt some digits into it.
However I can't seem to get the Arduino IDE to recognise the FTDI lead, I assumed it would show as a serial port but the only options i have are bluetooth and for some reason it seems to offer an iPhone option.
The FTDI has blue LED lit.
Any ideas where i'm going wrong?
I've only used the adapter on Linux (Ubuntu), no dirvers are required. I know the adapter does work with windoes and Mac, I think he driver needs to be installed: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx
Can anyone offer first hand experience using the CP2102 Nanode FTDI programming adapter with windows?
If your still having trouble try posting here: http://groups.google.com/group/nanode-users.
Excellent, the driver worked (im on a mac)
I initially didnt think it was a driver issue as the mac seemed to see the FTDI ok, but obviously not well enough to work with the IDE.
All sorted now! I can crack on and get the other modules built.
Ah great, apologies for assuming windows!
