There is a driver at the following URL.
https://www.cypress.com/documentation/software-and-drivers/usb-serial-software-development-kit

Does the Linux driver include driver software for VCP?

There is a description of "USB-Serial Virtual COM port API Guide for I2C and SPI (for Windows)" on this site. I think it can be used only Windows.

Thanks,
Tetsuo

Hi Tetsuo-san,

Linux does not need separate driver or library in CDC device class operation. The standard CDC class driver itself can be used as the virtual com Port driver. 

Yes, the USB-Serial virtual COM port (VCP) I2C/SPI APIs can be used only in the Windows operating system using USB-Serial Communications Device Class (CDC) devices.

Regards
