[Orange Pi One] Unable to connect via UART/TTL USB

Recommended Posts

Armbianmonitor:

Hi, I'm new to the Armbian/Alt PI scene, coming from a RPI Zero W.

 

I'm needing to interact with my PI using a CH340G (is it compatible) USB to TTL dongle. I've also trjed a CH351A device, put it into UART mode.

 

Unfortunately, I get nothing from the PI. Despite using the primary RX/TX pins. I've also tried enabling all of the UART pins using armbian-config, and using another set of pins - to no avail.

 

Please view my setup below. I've run out of ideas of where I'm going wrong.

 

I've tried these images:

Armbian_5.90_Nanopineo2_Debian_buster_next_4.19.57
Armbian_5.90_Orangepione_Ubuntu_bionic_next_4.19.57

You set speed to 153200. Ofc it can't work.

@Turbine set the speed inside puTTY also to 115200 like in the hardware-properties of windows for the usb-dongle

AND you did make a small beginners failure ;)
You have connected RX to RX (Orange <-> Orange) and TX to TX (Green <-> Green).

Normally you have to connect crossover:

RX to TX and

TX to RX but

GND <-> GND

Thank you. It works now that I've connected TX <-> RX & RX <-> TX.

 

That's incredibly embarrassing. None of the SOC guides I followed mentioned which pins to link.
