Using 4 serial ports and a usb to VGA. Is possible?

HI friends, im a newbie, still don’t get my beagle bones black boards from digikey.

For a project i will ned 4 serial ports, i already see i must forget to use HDMI if choice that option. I need also to show on a display data and also allow me interact in a easy way with my program.

Is possible , somebody already try, connect a usb to via adapter and use this as main display? What changes are needed to disable cdmi and set this as main display? Any via adapter tested?

Any other options?

Best regards!

use usbserial adapter. i think it’s easy.

display over usb, maybe slowly.

Pick up a 4 port usb-serial adapter such as:

Then you don't have to worry about a usb-hdmi device..


Is a perfect solution. Thank you!
Im just trying to understand if usb port is accesible on the GPIO port and allow me, in some way, to design a cape for internal use. My idea is avoid a external usb cable, just lug the beagle bone on the sister board and connect beagle bone usb to serial ports usb , no external wire. Is that possible?

Best regards!

Is posible to get on P8 or P9 usb signals? I plan to integrate the CP2108 on a cape board, will not use the SUDB connector, but can’t find the USB signals on this connectors.

Best regards

Nope, just do it like everyone else:

get a small usb-usb cable and have the cp2108 on your board..
