Driver Installation

Great News! Most modern operating systems already have the device drivers needed for your Binho Nova Multi-Protocol USB Host Adapter to work properly installed. The Binho Nova utilizes the standardized USB Communications Device Class driver in order to achieve maximum compatibility with as many systems as possible. As such, there's no driver to download and install.

Windows 7 does not have the standard USB CDC driver mentioned above. Please see the troubleshooting article below.

If this is the first time connecting to a hardware device from your account on your Mac, you'll need to grant permission to your user account. Please see the following support article for instructions to perform this task:

If you're on Ubuntu or another Linux distribution and running into issues with your device, please perform the procedure in the following troubleshooting article:

Connection to the Computer

Use the provided USB Type-C (male) to USB Type-A (male) cable to connect the Binho Nova Multi-Protocol USB Host Adapter to your host PC. The device can be plugged into any available USB port - there is no requirement to plug it into a USB 3.0 port.

Upon power up, the Status LED on the Binho Nova will shine yellow while it is waiting for the COM port to be opened. When connected properly, the device should immediately enumerate and become available for use as a new COM port. Once a serial connection has been established between the device and the host computer, the Status LED will shine blue.

The Status LED is user-programmable, so after initial power up and establishment of the serial connection, the Status LED color meaning is not correlated with any particular device state unless specifically set from within the test scripts.

Connection to the Test Circuit

The Binho Nova Multi-Protocol USB Host Adapter features an integrated wire harness terminated with a 1.27mm pitch 2x5 IDC Connector. This harness contains the 5 signal pins, 1 x 3V3 power signal, 1 x VBUS power signal, and 3 x GND signals.

The figure below shows the connector pinout and channel functions:
