CY4601 Development for Mac OS.

Question: Using the CY4601 USB to Serial reference design under the Mac OS. Is it possible to the same reference design as is? If not, does it require to make any hardware/firmware changes?

 

Answer:

Keep the same reference firmware for Mac OS. However, it is required to develop a Mac OS driver. Our USB to Serial COM driver is only supported under Windows. There is a contact for the driver developer on the last page of the design notes. You may wish to engage the driver developer to enquire about a Mac OS driver. We also have consultants on our web page that you can contact for driver solution needs.
