There will be 2 ports automatically configured. The first port will be the Cortex-A console. If the port is not configured you may need to install FTDI drivers.

You will also need a terminal application. We recommend Tera Term, but you can use the terminal application of your choice. Connect to the virtual COM port using 115200 as baud rate, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity.

Power supply

Together with the kit you get a 12V power supply with AC plugs for EU, UK, US, and AU.

Select the plug used in your country and attach it to the power supply. Connect the 2.1mm male barrel jack to the COM Carrier board V2 (4 in the overview figure).
