debug serial port dropping data

I was wondering what folks are using to monitor serial data emitted on the beaglebone black serial port as I am dropping lots of data which makes reading of serial bootup data difficult and unreliable.

I am using Linux distro (POP-OS) with a 3 wire to USB cable connecting to pins 1, 4, 5 and have tried sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200,cs8 as well as minicom but in both instances I lose data.

Suggestions appreciated.

What chipset are you using? I just use ftdi based chipset’s here by default…


I am using a 3 pin ftdi cable.
