WICED Evaluation boards have a FTDI FT2232 chip which provides debug capability with USB to UART+JTAG.
To provide this functionality, the FTDI chip must be configured with the correct settings, which is done via an EEPROM. This EEPROM should be programmed via USB with the correct settings for the WICED board.
Unzip and open the following files in a text editor: ftdiport.inf, ftdibus.inf
Modify the VID/PID to match those you noted earlier.
Install the driver by right clicking the device (in Device Manager) and selecting "Update Driver Software", then "Browse my computer for driver software" and select the directory with the modified driver files.
Now FTDI should be able to detect the board.
Important Note in relation to the FTDI programming:
The pin mapping between the FTDI chip and the host processor must exactly match that used on the WICED boards otherwise the board will be incompatible with the TCL scripts. If the board is incompatible please use a new VID/PID and TCL script to avoid making your system incompatible with WICED EVBs.
If you are selling boards with FTDI parts on them, you MUST NOT use BroadcomVendor ID. This means they you will need to change the driver and TCL scripts to pick up your new values.
