USB to Serial Adapter Driver for host PC - Carrier Board Accessory Kit V1.1B

The USB to Serial Adapter should work out of the box on the following host operating systems:

  • Windows 10

  • Linux distribution using kernel 5.5 or newer

For older Linux Kernels, you will need to build the driver manually. Download the driver from ProlificUSA website.

Find out the version of your kernel. We recommend that you update your distribution before proceeding. See the example below:

$ uname -r 
5.4.0-52-generic

Build the kernel from the folder with the closest version to your kernel, from the example above, it would be the 5.2_ok folder:

$ cd 5.2_ok
$ make all

After building the driver, remove the existing default driver:

$ sudo rmmod pl2303.ko

Install the built driver:

$ sudo insmod pl2303.ko

For more information about the driver, you can also refer to the readme.txt in the download package.
