The UART0 is a debugging console. The logic level is 1.8V.

Two ways of using UART0. First is to solder directly to the testpads near the PMIC (yellow and cyan points). The 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).

It is on the PCI-E connector pins 8,10,12,14 is RFR, CTS, TX, RX. On Wifi Vita 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

ScePervasiveForDriver_EFD084D8(uart_bus); // Turn on clock
ScePervasiveForDriver_A7CE7DCC(uart_bus); // Out of reset
ksceUartInit(uart_bus);
/*
 * Use UART bus
 * ...
 */
ScePervasiveForDriver_788B6C61(uart_bus); // Put to reset
ScePervasiveForDriver_18DD8043(uart_bus); // Turn off clock
