Odroid U3 & GIMX

Unread post by warfeiner » Sat Jan 07, 2017 6:40 pm


I'm going to start a new project with GIMX. I'm hoping that this way I'm able to connect a LG DFGT driving wheel to my xbox 360. There I need a DIY usb cable, usb to serial.

There is also RPi guide: https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=RPi

My question is, do I need the "voltage divider" mentioned in the RPi guide? If I'm understanding everything correctly, U3's uart is using 1,8V?

Thank you for your help! :)

U3 on-board UART port is 1.8Volt.
So you need the level-shifters on Tx as well as Rx lines.
But if you use a USB-UART converter, you don't need it probably.

Do you need a USB-UART as well as U3 on-board UART?
