Seth here. Um, does anyone know if using a Prolific Chipset TTL to USB cable works on the older am335x supported boards like the BBB or BeagleBone Green?
P.S. I have one and it reads via
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port / Mobile Phone Data Cable
/dev/ttyUSB0 device does not show up… I am bummed out and want to try to figure this one out.
Some serial devices show up as ACMx devices
Thank you. I will check. This chipset is pre-2016 I think.
P.S. Plus, and this may matter right now, I am using WSL2 on a Windows Machine for testing out the chipset for the BBG.
For anyone testing with WSL2 Debian Bookworm, kernel 5.10.x, on Windows 11 Machines for the Prolific pre-2016, see below:
2-8 067b:2303 PL2303TA DO NOT SUPPORT WINDOWS 11 OR LATER, PLEASE CONTA... Not shared
and when I share it on the WSL2 side of things:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port / Mobile Phone Data Cable
But, I have no way to contact the serial device via
tio /dev/tty worked…
I am not getting a boot log yet. I will try to reboot.
Just an update here…
So, Linux should be the cure. Even though I can use usbipd on Windows 11 and install/attach/bind the device for WSL2 use, I get nothing in the form of
/dev/ttyUSB0 and nothing in the form of
This is okay, i.e. since I have a Debian Bookworm Distro handy I can utilize to handle the connection.
Updates on the way for anyone who cares!
And yes sir, so. Linux works out-of-the-box with the current image along with
/dev/ttyUSB0. I am using a Debian Bookworm Distro for the host while the target, this BBG, has Bullseye on it.
