If you want just to test use Usb to serial module.

Every online electronics shop has something similar.

thanks…just though it would very useful. Want to be able to talk to the UART device soldered to the board so this would not be an option for me.

Then expose the UART pins of your device on your board and connect to these pins whenever you want to test it.

thanks Architect, would be a great feature if possible, but will take your suggestion :slight_smile:

@ anthonys - Don’t forget to check RS232 vs TTL voltage levels so you don’t accidentally fry anything!
