Using jumper wires it can be used to access the serial connection on a Raspberry Pi and for Arduino programming (using RTS for reset). The board uses through-hole connections on both the micro-USB and female 6-way 0.1" header for a more robust product over the surface mount alone.
This module can only be used with systems using 3.3V, connecting to those using higher/lower voltages may result in damage. Click here for a 5V version.
The IC used in the adapter enumerates as a Communication Device Class (CDC) device which modern (Win10/Linux/Mac OS X) operating systems have built-in drivers for.
A micro-USB cable will be required (not included).
Enabling Serial Console (Raspberry Pi)
To enable serial console on a default Raspbian (or Cluster HAT) installation add "enable_uart=1" to your config.txt in the boot partition.
