2014-12-34 (Tu) Color/Touch Sensory Panel & Arduino Laser Tag

A new USB <-> Serial TTL adapter arrived for programming the Arduino Pro Minis used in the Laser Tag and Color/Touch projects. Other inexpensive adapter boards use imitation FTDI chips which no longer work with FTDI drivers. This adapter board uses a CP2102 chip by Silicone Labs. The installation was not plug-and-play. A driver had to be downloaded from their website but it was easy to find and installed for Mac and PC without problems then ran properly when putting code into the Arduino and even supported the software reset which didn't work on the last FTDI chip.
