Solved : Serial to USB adapter

All the jumpers are "on" (I mean in place), and following your advice I will leave them in place.
I plan to power the board from the USB plug, because I don't know how to do else (if there was another possibility I would not have to buy another phone charger, as I have a spare one but which has not a micro USB plug, but a jack plug).
Another question : the green LED indicates that the power is on ; what about the red LED ? Does it blink all the time (that's what it does at the moment).
And the last one (for today ) : are the push button of any use for the TouchDRO application ?
I really don't know anything in electronics...... and reading the documentation of the controller is just like reading  chinese....

Thierry,
One of the LEDs should blink at 1 Hz. It's used as the "heart beat". I.e. if it's not blinking, the chip is not running. Depending on the firmware version, the other LED is the "Probe On" LED. I believe the second (non-reset) button shares the pin with the probe, so you should be able to control the LED with it.
Since you are new to electronics, it would be easier to just get a pre-made board or the kit. That way you would be working with a known baseline, at least.

Regards
Yuriy
