    Connecting a serial device to USB Host

    phil.w.howard

      I have an Edison and Arduino breakout board. I want to connect a 3DR telemetry radio. The radio has a USB interface and it shows up as a serial port when connected to a Windows machine.

       

      I placed the slider switch on the breakout board in the Host position, connected the radio and powered up the board. I was unable to find/connect to the radio. I tried all the reasonable TTY devices listed in /dev, but none of them seemed to be the radio.

       

      Do I need drivers? If so, where can I get them? and how do I install them?

       

      How do I determine what device is my radio?
