The default serial console is UART2, 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=ttyS2,115200n8.
Tinkerboard-Specific 3rd-Party Hardware
To avoid overheating a case with active cooler is recommendable. Many Raspberry Pi cases fit.
Here is a link to a Tinker Board specific case:
- C4Labs Cases for the Tinker Board, currently only one, the Zebra Black Ice Case for the ASUS Tinker Board
- S.USV - UPS uninterruptible power supply HAT for tinkerboard
- S.USV tinker mobile (Asus tinker UPS - wireless power supply)

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.
