Connecting a serial adapter to UART3 of the Asus Tinker-Board

The default serial console is UART3, 115200 baud, 8N1 (8bit, no parity, 1 stop bit), no software flow control (Xon/Xoff), no hardware flow control.

A "Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port (067b:2303)" USB adapter can be used.

The relevant kernel parameter is console=ttyS3,115200n8.



Tinkerboard-Specific 3rd-Party Hardware


Case with Pi Fan

To avoid overheating, a case with proper cooling features is recommended. Many Raspberry Pi cases will fit.

These cases were designed with a Tinker Board in mind:


Tinkerboard-Compatible 3rd-Party Hardware


  • Raspberry PI 7" touchscreen LCD MIPI-DSI


  • PoE - Power Over Ethernet HAT [1]

AB Electronics series of HATs [2]


More info can be found on https://tinkerboarding.co.uk/forum/thread-258.html


Tests so far have shown that the Tinker Board has roughly twice the processing power of the Raspberry Pi Model 3 when the Pi 3 runs in 32-bit mode.


CPU&GPU Temperature

A guide on how to check the CPU&GPU temperature can be found on https://tinkerboarding.co.uk/forum/thread-367.html

SD cards

Reported SD Card performance:

  • Sandisk Ultra microSDHC UHS-I 32Gb - 57Mb/s sustained read and write.
