Enabling UART2
#3
Hardware: Pine H64 Model B
Hat: Elelabs Zigbee Raspberry Pi Shield


Step 1. Software
  • Started from fresh, simple, Armbian (by way of DietPi) install.
  • Disabled uart serial consoles with armbian-config/dietpi-config. (Or not, I re-enabled and used it later.)
  • Add:
    Code:
    overlays=uart3
    to /boot/armbianEnv.txt
  • Reboot
  • confirm device creation with
    Code:
    dmesg | grep tty
  • Output should be close to: [    3.819251] 5000c00.serial: ttyS3 at MMIO 0x5000c00 (irq = 26, base_baud = 1500000) is a 16550A
  • If you aren't sure peripheral is working use uart0 as a loop back source by connecting uart0TX(EXT Pin 1) to uart3RX( Pin 36), and uart0RX(EXT3) to uart3Tx(pin 37).  You can then use "screen /dev/ttyS3 baudrate" to read input
Step 2. Hardware
  • Identify adapter pins
                 ________
                 |  |  |  |3|2|
    Pin 1-->|1|  |  |  |4|
Adapter <---> UART3 Pins:
1 VCC <---> 3v3 - Pin 1
2 TXD <---> uart3 RX - Pin 36
3 RXD <---> uart3 TX - Pin 37
4 GND <---> GND - pin 39


Step 3. Reverse TX and RX that you hooked up backwards despite checking 3 times. Wink

Step 4.... Profit!
