 +The UART cable for Turris MOX is different than for Turris MOX as it requires 1.8V instead of 3.3V. The pins for UART are exposed to GPIO pins. See [[https://​doc.turris.cz/​doc/​en/​howto/​mox/​gpio|GPIO pinout]].

 To access the serial link you first need to unscrew the top cover by removing 6 screws (3 on each side) and open the cover. The serial pins are in the right bottom corner of the board, between the right most LED and the LED control button. Connect it to you PC using a USB TTL serial adapter as shown on the photo - from the left the colors of the pins should be black (GND), yellow (RX), orange (TX). The specific cable in use in this manual is [[http://​www.ftdichip.com/​Products/​Cables/​RPi.htm|the Raspberry Pi Cable, TTL-232R-RPI]]. To access the serial link you first need to unscrew the top cover by removing 6 screws (3 on each side) and open the cover.
