Using jumper wires it can be used to access the serial on a Raspberry Pi and for Arduino programming (using RTS for reset). To enable serial console on a default Raspbian (or Cluster HAT) installation add enable_uart=1 to your config.txt in the boot partition.
This board can only be used with systems using 3.3V, connecting to those using higher/lower voltages may result in damage.
An FTDI FT234X IC is used in the adapter. "Virtual COM port (VCP)" drivers are available on ftdichip for many operating systems, the required kernel module is automatically loaded on recent Linux installations.
8086 use through-hole connections on both micro USB and female 6 way 0.1" header for a more robust product over the surface mount alone.
