Top customer reviews
The low rating I gave is directed at the management at SainSmart for choosing the vendor who tried to make those Nanos with cheap or dubious parts. In addition to buying the FT232RL from a non-approved vendor I also noticed that two electrolytic capacitors on the good board were replaced with cheaper ceramic (probably lower valued) capacitors on the non-operational boards. They also used slightly cheaper green power indicator LEDs in place of the blue that was used on the good board.
Workmanship appeared good on all boards. That told me that the vendor that saved a few pennies on the non-operational boards is capable of good work but consciously chose to shave costs and take a chance with how well the board will operate. Lower valued capacitors can cause very difficult to trace problems. The counterfeit chip is radically different than the original, since it appears to be a processor that is mask programmed to emulate the real chip. Timing will certainly be different
I have included pictures of the five Nanos I have showing both top and bottom views. In both cases the good one is on the far left.
Keep in mind that these photos are only of SainSmart Nanos. The hardware design is open source so similar boards are made by a host of other manufacturers. Even Gravitech, the original designer of the Nano has been hit by this counterfeit fiasco.
This has a counterfeit FTDI chip. The FTDI chip on the board is what allows you to program the arduino via USB. The latest Windows update, or current driver version from FTDI disables the device permanently. I did not know I was purchasing a device with a fake FTDI chip. The new driver update disabling these devices has been in the news (forums) the last few weeks since the October Windows update.
Looking at the chip it says "FTDI", but there are subtle differences between the fake chip on the board and a real chip I have on another board. Do not buy an Arduino unless it is from a known reputable source. FTDI has recommendations about which brands use legitimate FTDI chips.
Before plugging anything in I went to the first website below. That led me to the FTDI website that was listed earlier in other peoples posts.
Next I navigated to Device Settings and connected devices, not the manager or anything else.
If you did the proper set up for Win 10 and changed your update settings and other security fixes, you have to undo only one of them here.
Allow downloads for metered connections.
Plug in the NANO to your USB and if it doesn't pop up right away scan for a new device or add a new device.
I then installed the Arduino software and unchecked the box marked drivers.
Run the blink or another basic example and see if it works for you.
If you had any steps I missed add a comment please.
I hope it works for you as well.
