Serial Debug with Yavia board does not work

Hello all,

I am using the Verdin IMX8M Mini together with the Yavia Development board. I have connected the debug port (J5) to my USB port on my computer. I am using Windows on my host machine. My host machine does not recognize the Toradex device. Instead, it says that it detects a Standard Com Port and an Enhanced Com Port. I have tried to install drivers from this website: Drivers - FTDI but that did not help.

Does anyone know how I can use Serial to communicate with my Verdin module?

Kind regards,

Hello @xAnouk ,

Please follow these steps to solve your issue:

CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Drivers - Silicon Labs

Download the CP210x Windows Drivers with Serial Enumerator and install it.

Two new ports will appear in the Device Manager


Use the first one (COM3 in that case) to connect to the Verdin using the standard configuration

Best regards,
