Get quick access to the serial console on your Pi Zero projects.
Using solderless pins, the adapter slides onto the back of a Pi Zero GPIO.
The adapter PCB is printed with an alignment guide - This ensures the white SQUARE on the PCB is aligned with the GPIO pin with the SQUARE gold pad on the Pi Zero GPIO pin 1.
Please note: this adaptor is not compatible with the new Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W
It's advised to connect the adapter to the Pi Zero before connecting the USB cable to the adapter. Once connected the Pi Zero can be powered on/off without issue (to prevent the serial RX/TX pins being connected before the ground pin).
The IC is used as the adapter enumerates as a Communication Device Class (CDC) device which modern (Win10/Linux/Mac OS X) operating systems have built in drivers for.
