I have the ESP32 board with Silicon Labs CP2102 controller. When I connect it to my MacBook, I can get the details about this device using the command
system_profiler SPUSBDataType, but it is not listed in
/dev as a virtual serial port - so I can't communicate with it.
CP2102 USB to UART Bridge Controller: Product ID: 0xea60 Vendor ID: 0x10c4 (Silicon Laboratories, Inc.) Version: 1.00 Serial Number: 0001 Speed: Up to 12 Mb/sec Manufacturer: Silicon Labs Location ID: 0x14200000 / 5 Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): 100 Extra Operating Current (mA): 0
I'm using the official driver downloaded from https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers.
Any ideas how to make it visible in
/dev? I have also Windows installed on the same computer where it works fine, so the HW and the USB cable are OK.
