/!\ macOS Users Notice

Always check that you have installed the latest version of the driver for a virtual COM port. You can download it by this link.

There is a known problem with the MAC OS 10.13 "High Sierra" - it does not load driver automatically on demand. If you cannot find a COM port where board is connected, in the "Connection" list in the GUI, try to load the driver manually using the Terminal (go to Applications > Utilities > Terminal in Finder):

sudo kextload -b com.silabs.driver.CP210xVCPDriver

Then restart GUI and check the Connection list again.

This problem will be solved later by new drivers.
