I'm trying to connect my Arduino Uno to the Arduino IDE in Windows, but the only way it works is with a CH340 driver.
I am concerned about this as I can only find a download of it published by two Chinese companies- wch.cn or Jiangsu Qinheng Co., Ltd.- maybe they're both 1 company; even when Windows looked for a driver on the web that was the one it downloaded.
When I went to Device Manager to look for the driver in the official Arduino download zip, Windows said it couldn't find any drivers.
I am concerned about the security implications of the driver being Chinese and wonder if there are any other CH340 drivers (unless CH stands for China...)
Anyway thx for answering!!! :)
