Cheap Arduino clone DccEle – DCcduino Uno

Recently I bought very cheaply Arduino UNO Clone called DccEle – DCcduino UNO. Be default It wasn’t recognized by my Mac OS. After a quick google search, I found this article which pointed me to proper drivers.

If you are not afraid, just pull drivers from this website www.5v.ru or this one www.wch.cn. You can also pull copies from here:

All you need to do is just to install them – reboot computer – the new device will appear on your device list:

arduino-device

And obviously you can upload blink code to your new device:

  1. I bought 3 of these little devils and like you found out that weren’t recognized. Thanks to your efforts, all is well.

  2. Did you do anything else other than install these drivers? I’m running Yosemite, with the same Uno clone and the Arduino software still can’t see the board.
    Is the board choice still Arduino Uno within the Arduino software?

      1. Rebooted a few times, still no luck. It’s odd because the Windows drivers from the same site make the board work within Windows 7 via VMWare.

  3. Same problem as Mat. Yosemite on my MacBook and Arduino IDE doesn’t see my DCcduino UNO board. I’m waiting new macos 10.10 driver, hope coming soon.

      1. There are no 10.10 Drivers for this USB/Serial Bridge right know.
        From what i have read you have to disable the kext signing check on your MacBook by manipulating the NVRam Args.

        Of course this will harm system security, but to be honest i was able to live without that security feature till now.

  4. Just a note about the Mac drivers. I tried these on my iMac running 10.6.8. It work fine until I restarted my computer. After that is caused a kernel panic and crashed my computer when either clone was connected. After several hours I found the offending file that was installed and removed it. It was System/Library/Extensions/usb.kext
    My system doesn’t crash now but also doesn’t see the Arduino clones. The same driver installed on a MacBook running 10.9.5 works just great. I don’t know if this driver would work OK on 10.7 or 10.8

    1. I found the answer. The CH340 Chip only works with a 12MHz oscillator. The ATMega has his own very small 16MHz Osci. So everything is fine.

  5. Hi all,
    I bought the same board and installed the driver as above but cannot see the board. I am running 64 bit Windows 7 – any pointers will help. Also, how do I get Arduino to recognize the board?
    Thanks,
    John

  6. I connected the board to my PC with Windows 8.1 32 bits and it was automatically detected and worked immediately.

  7. Bought 2 of these a while back finally got one to upload a led code to a 328 ATmega on a bread board. The programmed 328 went to a standalone led cube. Now I can not remember how I did it. I remember the first and only time I uploaded to the chip, I press shift and? Please help, Anything might help..Just Bought a UNO with the 328 in it. I hope that will be easier. I use XP.

  8. There is a unloaded space for an X1 oscillator.
    I suspect the DCcduino is running with its internal (rather unstable) oscillator.
    Does anybody know what the X1 breakout is intended for?
