The cable is easiest way ever to connect to your
microcontroller/Raspberry Pi/WiFi router serial console port. Inside
the big USB plug is a USBSerial conversion chip and at the end of the
36" cable are four wire - red power, black ground, white RX into USB
port, and green TX out of the USB port. The power pin provides the 5V
@ 500mA direct from the USB port and the RX/TX pins are 3.3V level for
interfacing with the most common 3.3V logic level chipsets.
Because of the separated pin plugs, this cable is ideal for powering
and connecting up to the debug/login console on the Raspberry Pi or
BeagleBone Black. Connect the pins as shown to power the Pi or BBB and
establish the RX/TX link. Then install the Windows XP/Vista/7 or MacOS
X PL2303TA drivers on your computer and connect with a terminal
program at 115200 baud. Windows 8 is now supported!
Also handy for hacking WiFi routers to install alternate OS's, or
nearly any other TTL port. This is easier to use than an FTDI cable in
many cases because the wires are separated
This cable is not good for Arduino re-programming such as a
Boarduino, MENTA, Monochron, etc. because it does not have the DTR/RTS
wire necessary for initiating the bootloader reboot sequence. For that
we suggest an FTDI cable or FTDI friend.
This is the latest Version of this console-cable using the new
Conntect to your Pi as follow:
* Red Wire - do not connect
* Black Wire - Connect to Ground (GPIO Pin 6)
* White Wire - Connect to UART TXD (GPIO Pin 8)
* Green Wire - Connect to UART RXD (GPIO Pin 10)
Set your Terminal Software / Putty to 115200 Baud, 8N1
For the Banana Pi, connect the Black/White/Green Wires to GND/TXD/RXD
on the J12 Header (just beside the GPIO-Header)
