Adding a serial port

DEVICE UART pads

Serial port is provided through the audio jack port. Olimex sell a specific cable: [Teres usb debug]. You can find more information on [Olimex github repo].

If you decide to build your adapter cable, connect the tx to the tip of the jack, rx to central ring, and ground to the sleeve. They must be 3.3V compatible, don't connect to rs232 serial port. Usually usb serial adapter are 5v or 3.3v level compatible, but if in doubt, double check it.
