Are you having trouble installing CH340 Driver in Seeeduino Lotus? Here, I’ll explain how to install CH340 Driver in Seeduino Lotus in simple, easy steps. So let’s get started!
Install the Driver
What you'll need:
Get a Micro-USB cable. First, you need a Micro-USB cable; an Android Phone’s data cable will do fine.
Connect the board. Next, connect the Arduino board to your computer using the USB cable. The green power LED (labeled PWR) should turn on.
Download the driver
Good news! This CH340 driver (Seeeduino_Lotus V1.0) is available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10.
Double click on the driver and Install it
First, you need to Install Arduino Software.
Next, launch the Arduino application
Double-click the Arduino IDE application you have previously downloaded.
Third, open a Blink example
Open the LED blink example sketch: File > Examples >01.Basics > Blink.
After that, select your board. You’ll need to select the entry in the Tools > Board menu that corresponds to your Arduino—selecting a Seeeduino Lotus.
Subsequently, select your serial port. Select the serial device of the Arduino board from the Tools | Serial Port menu. This is likely to be COM3 or higher (COM1 and COM2 are usually reserved for hardware serial ports). To find out, you can disconnect your Arduino board and re-open the menu; the entry that disappears should be the Arduino board. Reconnect the board and select that serial port.
Now, upload the program. Click the “Upload” button in the environment. Wait a few seconds, and if the upload is successful, the message “Done uploading.” will appear in the status bar.
A few seconds after the upload finishes, you should see the pin 13 (L) LED on the board start to blink (in orange). If it does, congratulations! You’ve gotten Arduino up-and-running.
