DE10-Nano CDC Serial...

Hello, 

Can anybody help me locate a driver for windows for DE10-Nano? 

The CDC Serial is a bit of a mystery at the moment. 

When I look here (for example): https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/731117 

It refers to a FTDI chip - the drivers do not install at all. So maybe CDC Serial is from some other manufacturer? 

Thanks, 

lefty

I bumped into the same issue. For serial connection, you should use the mini-USB connector. That one instances into a USB-serial port correctly.  

 

If you happen to plug into micro-USB, CDC serial would appear, but that won't instance into a serial port. So that's for LAN-over-USB route.  

 

Basically, beware of different USB connectors.
