Make Your Own USB Device Using FTDI


FTDI really opened the door for easy Arduino access. Marvelous tech!

But, as with all open source, the ChiComs will jump on it like a pack of ravenous weasels. So, when they started cranking out a 6 PACK OF NANOS for $10, they put a knockoff FTDI chip on the USB which is incompat with Arduino IDE. You have to go get their USB driver, which may or may not be hitchhiker laden.
