N2 serial console and pl2303

Unread post by congo » Sun Oct 13, 2019 3:36 pm

Hello,

I am waiting for N2 Delivery. However i have from my old SBCs pl2303 (https://www.adafruit.com/product/954) and i thought that this will work for sure with N2. However i found this : viewtopic.php?f=181&t=35524 .
I know that N2 has for tx/rx 3.3V and this cable gives 3.3V, but there is something with power pin and 5V which N2 does not like.
So can someone please clarify me if i can reuse pl2303 for serial console ? If so how to correctly connect the pins please ?

You can reuse the pl2303, but connect only rx/tx (swapped) and gnd. Don't connect power. You can use dupont jumper wires and force them into the connector (gently)
