  • CP2102 driver Mac Catalina. I too can confirm that the 5.1.0 driver does work with Catalina (though the headline over the download link still gives the wrong version number (e.g. Download for Macintosh OSX (v5.0.10)) What is interesting is that Catalina brings DriverKit, a new technology meant to lift certain types of devices away from bolting directly to the kernel via a.

I have the ESP32 board with Silicon Labs CP2102 controller. When I connect it to my MacBook, I can get the details about this device using the command system_profiler SPUSBDataType, but it is not listed in /dev as a virtual serial port - so I can't communicate with it.

I'm using the official driver downloaded from https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers.

MacOS Catalina 10.15.5 introduces battery health management in the Energy Saver settings for notebooks, an option to control automatic prominence of video tiles on Group FaceTime calls, and controls to fine-tune the built-in calibration of your Pro Display XDR. The update also improves the stability, reliability, and security of your Mac.

Any ideas how to make it visible in /dev? I have also Windows installed on the same computer where it works fine, so the HW and the USB cable are OK.

I found that macOS High Sierra has blocked the SiLabs kernel extension.

Macos Cp2102 Driver Download

Here are steps to allow this extension:

Macos Cp2102 Driver Update

  1. Go to 'System Preferences' -> 'Security & Privacy'
  2. In the bottom of the window, you will see a message 'System software from developer 'SiLabs' was blocked from loading.'
  3. Click on 'Allow' button
  4. Restart your Mac

Now my device is listed as /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART and everything work as expected.

The Allow button did not work for me, so I had to disable checking altogether:

  1. Shut Down
  2. Hold mac+ R during boot to enter recovery mode
  3. Open a terminal
  4. type spctl kext-consent disable and press enter
  5. Reboot
  6. It worked

If you approved through Security settings but still can't see /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART, most likely that you need a new micro-usb cable. It's not that your cable is broken, but some cables are only meant for power so they can't transfer data.

For me, I tried four cables and only the last one works, which comes from Sony (forgot where I got this cable though)

For me I would install the driver but I never got the message in the Security & Privacy screen that I was supposed to 'Allow'. The solution:

sudo kextload /Library/Extensions/SiLabsUSBDriver.kext/

This will actually spit out an error:

Mac

/Library/Extensions/SiLabsUSBDriver.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) system policy prevents loading; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).

However, if you now go to System Preferences-> Security & Privacy, you'll find the necessary message and Accept button to allow the kext to load. Click that, plug in your device and check that there is a detected device:

Try another cable. You might be using one with only power connections, not data.
