CH340 windoz

the NANO from china is dirt cheap, been around for years.

supported by LINUX without searching for drivers.

any chance it will get supported in the IDE without having to download drivers with names that are unreadable ?

guess my real question is where to find the suggestion box ?

I think the ide only includes drivers for official boards, and none of the official boards use the ch340G.

The suggestion box is here, FWIW, but I really would not get at all excited about suggesting that Arduino support clones that clearly do not support the project itself.

I doubt the FTDI chip will ever be used in a new design, but the CP2102 has superior specs (and documentation) to the CH340 as far as I can see.

Personally, I think your title says it all. I would only ever use Windoze where my business software is written by less-than competent people and constrains it. :roll_eyes:

FWIW I bought an Uno with CH340 chip, when I plugged it in, Windows 7 was able to detect it - I did not have to install any special drivers.

Needless to say I was very surprized because I was gearing up for a battle after having read other posts regarding the drivers.
