Ftdi Com Port Driver For Mac

I bought an Arduino-compatible Freaduino board atmega8 (I selected the board type as Arduino ng or older atmega8). I installed the Arduino IDE on Mac OS X and the FTDI drivers. I bought an Arduino-compatible Freaduino board atmega8 (I selected the board type as Arduino ng or older atmega8). I installed the Arduino IDE on Mac OS X and the FTDI drivers. But my serial port l. Virtual COM port (VCP) drivers cause the USB device to appear as an additional COM port available to the PC. Application software can access the USB device in the same way as it would access a standard COM port. FTDI drivers may be used only in conjunction with products based on FTDI parts. Mac OS X 10.9 and above: 20 15-0 4-1 5-2. These extended baud rates are readily available with FTDI’s D2XX drivers, but I wanted to retain the ability to use a standard serial programming API to communicate with the hardware. As such, I was left with the task of aliasing some other standard baud rate to 3.2MBaud in the virtual com port drivers. The COM stands for 'communication', and each one has a unique number, known as the COM Port number. In this case the COM Port number is COM3. If you don't see the COM port verify the cable is plugged in, and check that you installed the VCP FTDI driver.

I’m on Mavericks (10.9.5) and fighting with a USB device with a “FT232R” chip (from FTDI) for USB to serial conversion.

It was not accessible in OS X (e.g. QuickTerm didn’t list it, only the Bluetooth Port + Modem).

Using an old Windows (in a Parallels VM on the same Mac) I could (and still can) access the device, switch it back and forth between OS X and Win, and send commands to it using a terminal SW.


In OS X it seems to be unknown, however, the USB Device Tree reports the FT232R USB UART correctly with Product ID and Vendor ID from FTDI.


But I want to get rid of the Win (VM) solution and installed the FTDI driver for Mac, didn’t work.

As suggested by FTDI for Mavericks

I have also disabled (renamed) the AppleUSBFTDI.kext, restarted and installed the FTDI driver (version 2.3, signed by Apple). The installer always tells me “success” but I still can’t see the driver /System/Library/Extensions/FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext (should it be there?) and the device isn’t accessible from OS X.


I’ve tried again and again, there is no FTDI or USBSerial device listed in /dev when I plug it in or switch it back from Win - I guess because the (OS X) driver isn’t correctly installed?


Could someone help, please?

(I have little knowledge in OS X)
