By default, the serial console provides access to

  • kernel console
  • bootloader command line interface


The serial console is routed, via serial to USB converter, to (P16) mini-USB jack.
The line speed is pre-set to 115200 bps.

Software configuration

Below provided directions for configuring PuTTY (or its fork project KiTTY).
Notice, on Ubuntu Linux, the user running PuTTY might be required to belong to dialout user group.

  • Launch PuTTY.
  • Change the Connection type to Serial.
  • Set the following configuration options:
    • Serial line
    • Speed


  • From the Connection menu on the left, select Serial
  • Select a serial line:
    Select a serial line associated with the connected device, which most probably will not be COM1.
  • Configure the serial line:
    • Speed (baud): 115200
    • Data bits: 8
    • Stop bits: 1
    • Parity: none
    • Flow control: none


  • Click Open.

At this point PuTTY is configured, its terminal should display the serial console.
