Guidance

  1. Where additional information may prove useful, please include this, e.g. requires a powered USB hub, only works with Kernel vN etc.
  2. Where a peripheral has proven to be problematic, please add a sub-section for problem hardware if it doesn't already exist and note down a few details there.
  3. If you'd like to notify others you can also post details to the forum topic.

The gen 1 board uses logic levels of 0V and 3.3V. The 3 pin header (J2) is near the Ethernet port. It provides Transmit (Tx), Receive (Rx) and Ground (Gnd) on pins 1 to 3 respectively.
Depending on the adapter will probably have to wire Ground to Ground, Tx to Rx, Rx to Tx.

Unsuitable

  • Anything using the RS-232 or RS-423 standards. These have large and negative voltages.
  • PC serial port or replacement adapter. These can often be identified by a 9 pin D shaped socket.
  • Directly wiring to USB. An adapter is needed.
  • Directly wiring Ethernet
