Who We Are

The Purdue Mechatronics Club (PMTR) was formed by engineers for engineers. Our mission is to provide a welcoming environment for inventors and programmers to work together in creating innovative solutions. Purdue Mechatronics Club connects students from all technical majors to create projects in the field of robotics, wearables, mechatronics, and IoT. The club also aims to educate those who want to learn more about the world of mechatronics and robotics.

Hi guys,

I know that there were people in yesterdays session who were trying to figure out a way to upload code to the Arduino Nano using a Mac. Here is what you need to do:

1. Download the CH34x_Install.zip file from here:
2. Unzip it and Double click on the CH34x_Install.pkg file.
3. Follow the instructions for installation.
4. Upon installing reboot your machine.

Once you do this, open the Arduino IDE and you must see the serial port listed under Tools >> Ports

I was able to successfully upload the code upon doing this. Hope it works for you as well! Let me know if you need additional help and we will try to find a way out.

Note: Before you do this you might have to go to System Preferences >>Security and Privacy >>General and change the "Allow apps to be downloaded from" setting to "Mac App store and unidentified developers"
