Introduction: How to Connect Raspberry Pi Over Serial Port?
Heloooo^^ ! Today i'm gonna show how to connect your rpi with Serial, so you can access it's terminal
- Connectors, so you can attach them to pins
- five 0.1 uF capacitors (i used the ceramic ones)
- MAX3232CPE or SP3232ECP or similiar
- ofc Raspberry Pi (Both A and B models work)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Putting Things to Breadbeard
Now try to build that thing on the picture, it's the easy and large version
EDIT: Where are the squares, there are 0.1 uF capacitors missing, cuz i lost them(old picture)
Step 2: Cables
Make cables so you can connect them to Raspberry Pi GPIO header
I reccomend you look at GPIO pinout, so you don't accidentaly put the connector to 5v pin
Step 3: Connect!
Now connect that serial cable to your computer,
I reccomend that you change baud rate to 115200 cuz it's faster
Using Unix Screen:
sudo screen /dev/ttyS0 38400
i'm kinda lazy, i have so much time to type here about KiTTY/PuTTy :3
Step 4: DAFUQ IS GOING ON WITH MY TERM???
Sometimes, really, screen f*cks your mind
Look at picture(it's LINUX program "top")
Really, idk what to do... It sometimes comes(especially with very old computers, like i have), but try to switch port :) it works sometimes
EDIT: Slightly working solution: sudo rmmod serio_rw; sudo modprobe serio_rw
