System console interface board for platform development and debugging. This module kit is easiest way ever to connect to your ODROID serial console port.


This picture is connected with HOST PC

USB-UART Module is connected HOST-PC via Micro USB cable.


Windows 7

After connect your USB UART module with HOST PC, download and install USB to UART Bridge Driver.

CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Drivers

Then, you will find a COM PORT.

Download serial console program.


Run putty.

Select radio box of Connection type to Serial.
And then, Input the Serial line to COM Port number that you checked at device manager.
Also, Change the Serial speed to 115200 baud rate.

Every setting is now complete to run putty.
Open your serial port!

Linux (Ubuntu 13.10 or higher)

After connect your USB uart module with HOST PC, check your usb serial node.

$ lsusb
$ ls /dev/ttyUSB* -l

Install serial communication program on your HOST PC.

sudo apt-get install minicom

Setting up minicom.

sudo minicom -s

Select serial port setup from the menu.
Type 'A' to change the serial device, then edit the /dev/ttyUSB[nr].
You will also set baud rate to 115200 and disable the Hardware Flow Control.

| A -    Serial Device      : /dev/ttyUSB0                              |
| B - Lockfile Location     : /var/lock                                 |
| C -   Callin Program      :                                           |
| D -  Callout Program      :                                           |
| E -    Bps/Par/Bits       : 115200 8N1                                |
| F - Hardware Flow Control : No                                        |
| G - Software Flow Control : No                                        |
|                                                                       |

If you want to set to defualt , sellect Save setup as dfl from the menu.

So, You should be able to simply run minicom from a terminal whenever you want to open the terminal with your board.


UART Console Connector

|Pin 4 - GND|
|Pin 3 - RXD|
|Pin 2 - TXD|
|Pin 1 - VCC|

3.3V LVTTL for ODROID-C1/C1+/C0/C2/W

RxD pin is input and TxD pin is output.

The VCC pin is not a power source but a reference voltage input.
It is used for detecting the IO voltage like a VIO or a VDDIO.
Support for I/O interface voltages down to 1.8 V is provided via a VIO pin.

Molex 5268-04a(2.5mm pitch) is mounted on the PCB.
Its mate is Molex 50-37-5043 Wire-to-Board Crimp Housing.
45 degreed corner edge is a mark for pin number 1.
