Drivers Silicon Integrated USB Devices

11.Nov.2018 Update

I have lost track of how many updates Microsoft has released since I first penned this article a few years ago. Working to troubleshoot an issue in an online forum I was pleased to find Silicon Labs has continued to release updated drivers.

Reviewing the release notes also available at the link below the latest drivers are certified with later versions of Windows 10.

The version on the Yaesu website is several years old.

The CP210x USB to UART Bridge Virtual COM Port (VCP) drivers are required for device operation as a Virtual COM Port to facilitate host communication with CP210x products. These devices can also interface to a host using the direct access driver. The CP2104 is a USB 2.0 full-speed device with integrated USB clock, voltage regulator, and programmable memory reducing BOM costs and simplifying the design.

I am running Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit and am able to run the latest version of PCC downloaded from the Yaesu website without any special settings. Ham Radio Deluxe also works just fine with the updated driver.

With all of the security issues folks are having with Windows as Microsoft hardens the operating system. I would recommend following the Microsoft broad recommendation of keeping drivers updated.

I received an email from Ed Ve7ED raising awareness to a new USB serial driver from Silicon Labs, this is the chip which Yaesu uses in the FTDX3000 and I suspect other serial to USB radios and cables. Note if you are using Linux or OSX drivers for those platforms are also available. I have installed the 64Bit driver on my Windows 10 system and no runs, drips or errors.

Also worth noting drivers are available for OSX, Linux and Android if you are for example using FLDigi on those platforms.

Windows device driver information for Microsoft Integrated USB Hub

Drivers Silicon Integrated Usb Devices Download

USB hubs are those devices which enable the user to link a variety of USB devices to another hub or a single USB port that can be found on the computer. Many times, USB hubs are integrated into equipment, for example, printers, keyboards and computers. Computers that come with several USB ports generally have some which branch from several inner USB hubs instead of having each port stem from its own USB hardware. USB hubs which are de-linked physically come in different forms. Some come packaged as boxes which have extended cable that can be attached to the computer. There are those which come as small designs that can be linked directly to the computer via a USB port. There are also some hubs which utilize short cables (around six inches) so that the device remains a bit far to prevent congestion of the physical port while simultaneously increasing available ports.

Outdated Drivers?

Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
