The UART0 is a debugging console. The logic level is 1.8V.
PSTV UART0 location
OLED PSVita UART0 location
There are two ways of using UART0:
- First way is to solder directly to the testpads near the PMIC (yellow and cyan points).
- Second way is through the multi-connector or the testpads above it (blue and red points). To use the multi-connector points though, you need either to tell the syscon to select the Kermit UART (procedure currently unknown) or manually flip the switch (green point to 1.8V).
OLED PSVita UART5 location
It is on the PCI-E connector pins 8,10,12,14 is RFR, CTS, TX, RX.
- On 3G PSVita units, you can solder to the PCI-E connectors or install yifan's PSVSD.
- On Wifi PSVita units, you need to fill in the 88ohm termination resistors (or just short the pads) and some way to enable it (not known yet).
UART Initialization Code
kscePervasiveUartClockEnable(uart_bus); // Turn on clock kscePervasiveUartResetDisable(uart_bus); // Out of reset ksceUartInit(uart_bus); /* * Use UART bus * ... */ kscePervasiveUartResetEnable(uart_bus); // Put to reset kscePervasiveUartClockDisable(uart_bus); // Turn off clock
