Overview

The Android/Linux UART/serial port access from user is through the tty-devices. The tty-devices have different names depending on UART driver on different board.

RS-485

RS-485 uses half-duplex communication, which means that one medium is shared for transmitting and receiving data.

Therefore the system needs to control the RS-485 transceiver's transmit mode.

Usually the UART RTS signal is used to switch the transmitter on and off.

COM Name Device Node Remark
COM0 /dev/ttyS0
for BT Data
COM2
/dev/ttyS2
Debug Port
COM4
/dev/ttyS4
support RS232, no flow control
USB2COM0
/dev/ttyUSB0
support RS232
USB2COM1 /dev/ttyUSB1
support RS232
USB2COM2
/dev/ttyUSB2 support RS232 and RS485
USB2COM3
dev/ttyUSB3
support RS232 and RS485



Note : 

1. Only COM4、USB2COM0、USB2COM1、USB2COM2、USB2COM3 are designed for custom using.

2. Only USB2COM2 and USB2COM3 support RSB485.

3. COM2 is designed as debug port default. 


How to config RS232 or RS485 mode

Enter U-boot interrupt mode

Connect device to debug port, and open debug console. See more : How_to_debug.

Press "ctrl + c" key before power up the device, until get the following information on debug console : 

Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0
=> <INTERRUPT>
=>

Then you can input the following cammand to config UART mode.

Config Uart Mode

setenv ttyUSB2 RS485
setenv ttyUSB3 RS485
saveenv
reset

Note : 

The default value is RS232.
