Attaching a USB to Serial Adapter¶
- Solder in the UART debug plug
- Attach USB to Serial Adapter
PIN 1 is the one closest to the volume button while PIN 6 is the one closest to the power button.
The board can be powered in the usual way with the serial adaptor connected to
your workstation. Depending on your operating system and any other USB devices
you have connected, a serial console should appear as a device file such as
/dev/ttyUSB0. Connect to this using
picocom using this device file
instead of the one you would use for a serial connection to the board’s USB C
picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0
Use the relevant device file instead of
ttyUSB0 as necessary.
