I am running a macbook pro High-Seirra 10.13.6.
I installed apio (0.4.0b3) and the latest version of tinyprog (1.0.11).
% pip install --upgrade --no-cache-dir apio==0.4.0b3 “tinyprog>=1.0.10”
% apio install system scons icestorm iverilog drivers
% apio drivers --serial-enable
I then plugged in the BX. The power light is on the the status light is blinking. However, the
serial device does not appear.
% apio system --lsserial
Number of Serial devices found: 0
It does mount a usb device.
% system_profiler SPUSBDataType
USB 3.0 Bus: Host Controller Driver: AppleUSBXHCISPTLP PCI Device ID: 0x9d2f PCI Revision ID: 0x0021 PCI Vendor ID: 0x8086 Communication Device: Product ID: 0x2100 Vendor ID: 0x1209 Version: 0.00 Speed: Up to 12 Mb/sec Location ID: 0x14300000 / 6 Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): 100 Extra Operating Current (mA): 0
Note the vendor and product id.
% tinyprog -l
TinyProg CLI ------------ Using device id 1d50:6130 No port was specified and no active bootloaders found. Activate bootloader by pressing the reset button.
For some reason, apio doesn’t seem to be creating a serial port.
