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.

Serial adapters

The gen 1 board uses logic levels of 0V and 3.3V. The 3 pin header (J2) is in a corner of the board near the Ethernet port. It provides Transmit (Tx), Receive (Rx) and Ground (Gnd). The pins are labelled.
Depending on the adapter will probably have to wire Ground to Ground, Tx to Rx, Rx to Tx.
The default communications protocol used by the Parallella is 115,200 bits per second, eight data bits, no parity, one stop bit (8N1).

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
