GNUBLIN on Mac OS X

From GNUBLIN

Gnublin on Mac OS X

Download and install the drivers

You have to install a driver for the USB-to-serial converter CP2102 from Silabs under MAC OSX. You can download the driver here. The right one is VCP Driver Kit under Download for Macintosh OSX (v3.0).

The installation process is as usual on MAC by mounting the downloaded archive and execute the installer. After the installation process you will need to reboot your system.

After this you will find a new device entry (CP2102 USB to UART Bridge Controller) in your system profiler (about this MAC -> further information ..)

The following screenshot shows the new device entry in your system profiler:

Serial terminal over screen

You can connect to your GNUBLIN board with the program screen which you can find on every MAC OSX system.

First open a terminal ( programs? -> utilities? -> terminal ). After this you can start the serial terminal with the following command:

screen /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART 115200

Now you can communicate with your GNUBLIN board.

After this can go on to your first example application here.
