PiSerialixed - Raspberry Pi 3 UART USB Board

$4,209

233

If you want to use a Raspberry Pi 3 ( or for that matter, a Pi Zero) , a typical initial set up requires a Television, an HDMI Cable and a keyboard.

The Raspberry Pi 3 also has a console boot up more where the console boot messages can appear on its serial port ( UART is a more technical term for it). These UART Pins are available on the 3 pins of the 40 Pin Connector.

We can possible control the Raspberry Pi 3, using the console port. This is where the PiSerialixed comes in picture. It acts as an interface between the Raspberry Pi 3 and the USB Port.

Hooking the Raspberry Pi3 with the PiSerialixed, you can see the console messages and the login through the console to control the Raspberry Pi 3. This avoids the need to use an HDMI TV and Keyboard.

The PiSerialixed can also be used to test the Serial Port or any UART / Serial Port Communication between Raspberry Pi and Laptop. In that case you will be using SSH or the HDTV as the console.

Using PiSerialixed

We have listed the steps to use Pi Serialixed in our blog here.

Our Earlier Similar Projects on Kickstarter

Notixed is very similar to the PiSerialized project. It turns Pi Zero into a USB devices - without the need of a cable or connector. Just hook notixed with Pi Zero with the 4 provided screws.  It was successfully backed by 291 backers and raised $3,711 on kickstarter.

  2. Hubpixed

Hubpixed is a 4 Port USB 2.0 Hub that will seamlessly connect to Raspberry Pi Zero without any connector. The novel idea uses the pogo pins. The hubpixed has been updated to support the latest Pi Zero 1.3 and Pi Zero W. It raised  $3194 from 125 backers on kickstarter.

3. HubPiWi and HubPiWi Blue

The HubPiWi extends the functionality of Hubpixed to include a Wifi on Hubpixed. The HubPiWi Blue extends a WIfi and a Bluetooth. HubPiWi had 149 backers and HubPiWi Blue had 553 backers.

Risks and challenges

The Prototype has been tested and as such we do not see any Risk.

We have experience with earlier projects with manufacturing and the worst case scenario is slight delay in the delivery ( at the most by 2 weeks). We do not see any other risk with this project.
