To debug your device with a serial cable, you will need:
* A serial debugging cable for your device. '''You will need to make this yourself''', so prior experience with soldering and soldering tools is recommended.
* An USB-UART adapter that will allow you to connect the UART cable from your phone/tablet to your computer.
* A piece of software like screen, PuTTY or CuteCom that will be used to access the output from the USB-UART adapter on the computer.
** The best is to have them a couple (4-8) centimeters long, to solder them, solder a connector on the other end, and scotch tape them to the pcb
** Please, don't forget to pick insulated wires
