ASIX High-Speed USB Serial Port Driver

Everything seems to be OK, except the baud rate is incorrect. The cu command at least tells you that the baud rate is unsupported.


Everything you type is sent over the serial line, which can make it tricky to exit the program. Use the following key shortcuts ASIX High-Speed USB Serial Port exit: Often there is a row of four or five pins with at least ground, Vcc, Rx and Tx. Sometimes the pins are omitted and there are only holes.

Often such a connection is labeled as J5 or another number. The device came with blank pads and I soldered the pins to it.

USB to Serial Adaptor

You can see a little table in the silk screening that describes the pins: Tx, Gnd, Vcc, Rx. The pins on the right side are JTAG pins. For similar reasons, debug ports are often on the side of the board.

If you suspect a pin to be a UART line, the first step is to measure the voltage using a multimeter. First, find a good connection for the common ground and connect the black lead of the multimeter to it. Then measure the voltage on the suspected pins with the red lead.

A Tx line will be 3. Keep measuring while rebooting the device.

Data is often sent on boot, so we can use this to determine whether data is sent over the line. If data is sent, the voltage will temporarily drop below 3V according to the multimeter.

Since spring 2012 there is a new enclosure and label colour

Now you have determined that the line has an acceptable voltage and there is activity on it. One way to determine this is to use a logic analyzer or oscilloscope to view the electrical signals.

In the example below a camera has five holes, initially hidden under a white sticker. This makes it possible to access the UART interface from the outside.

Connecting to the device Before connecting to the device, make sure it emits a voltage that is compatible with your bridge. The Rx of the bridge connects to the Tx of the device, and the other way around. Whether to connect Vcc depends on whether you use an isolated bridge.


If your adapter is not isolated, connecting Vcc of your bridge to the device may interfere with the voltage already on the device. If the device gets power from another power supply it already has a certain voltage level on its Vcc pin.


However, most bridges can only supply up to mA or so, which is not enough for most devices. Finding the baud rate A common way is to try the standard baud rates until the output looks legible.

Alternatively, the baud rate can be determined by measuring the length of the shortest pulse. So if we measure the duration of one bit we can determine the baud rate. This is easiest with a logic analyzer, which just shows the timing in the interface: Alternatively, it is possible with a microcontroller ASIX High-Speed USB Serial Port using input capture to measure pulse widths. I created an autobaud program that works on Arduino Uno and can determine baud rates up tobps reliably.

Using an incorrect baud rate will typically show gibberish, although it is also possible that you see nothing at all.
