I just finished soldering my peripherals to my Propboard, downloaded and installed the Arduino IDE, and wrote my code. I was all set to upload the code to the board only to find that I need a serial port on my PC! According to the website, I need a USB-to-serial connection in order to upload the code!
I could go out and buy a usb-to-rs232 adapter, install the adapter’s driver to my PC to create a sort of virtual COM port, then buy a usb-to-serial adapter cable and connect to that, but that seems extremely silly; my cable setup would be usb-serial-usb!
Is there a way for me to upload my code directly to the Propboard using only a usb connection?
