Regarding the NANO does the USB chip really matter?

When it comes to the CH340 instead of FT232RL, is there any reason to avoid the NANO using the CH340? Just curious before I buy any as I am only slightly familiar with the UNO.

Thanks

I have never had a problem with them. I get the Elegoo 3 pack. They are cheap but you have to solder on the pin headers. I have also been very happy with all their other products too. Good clones.

 

It's a lot like the Uno. Just plug in the USB and upload. Easy to work with. Just make sure you have a Mini-B USB cable.

Some people used to have problems getting the right driver, but I haven't heard many complaints about that lately.

Anything seems possible when you don't know what you're talking about.

Thanks madmisha. I was looking at the 3 pack from the LAFVIN store on Amazon. I will look at the Elegoo and compare.

The LAFVIN ones have the upgraded CH340G chip.
