USB to SPI converter

The MD-CC30x-001 USB to SPI converter is a plug-n-play device, which uses a Virtual COM Port (VCP). Drivers will typically automatically install on an Internet connected PC, notebook or Windows tablet when the device is connected to a free USB port. If automatic installation fails, or if you need to download drivers for a non-connected PC, or for an alternate operating system, the drivers may be downloaded from the web at: Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Drivers

Driver Installation (Automatic)

On an Internet connected Windows PC or Notebook, plug the MD-CC30x-001 into an open USB port on your PC.

The device driver software should automatically install.


Driver Installation (Manual)

Download the Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Drivers from the Silicon Labs web site (will open in a new browser tab).

Extract the driver *.zip file to a location on your PC.

Double click the executable file appropriate to your operating system x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit).

Follow the dialogs and prompts to install the drivers.


Verify installation (Windows 7/8.x)

Record the COM port number for later use, either from the notification balloon on the lower right of your desktop, or from the Windows device manager, accessible by right-clicking on “My Computer” and selecting manage (Windows 7) or by pressing the WIN+X keys on your keyboard (Windows 8).
