Hardware Connection

  • Using the Raspberry Pi Zero W as an example:
  1. Insert the module into the 40Pin GPIO interface of the ZERO, and at the same time connect the USB interface of the Zero W to the USB HUB interface of the module with the Micro USB connector.
  2. Connect the Micro USB to the USB to UART interface of the module, and the other end to the computer, the power indicator of the module lights up, at this time, you can log in to the Raspberry Pi through the serial port on the computer side (the Raspberry Pi needs to be enabled for serial control).
  3. Connect the USB device to the ports of USB1~USB4, the corresponding LEDs D1~D4 are lit, then the device works normally.

Raspberry Pi Serial Porrt

There is a switch on the back of the module, the switch can select the serial port, two switches are turned ON, and the Raspberry Pi's serial port leads to.
