Connect to hat Via USB

Post by Kalamgish » Wed Apr 03, 2019 4:50 pm

I used to connect to the pi via remote desktop over wifi, however I now have very poor wifi coverage in my shed.
Is it possible to remove the pi and connect a laptop directly to the hat via a usb cable?
Thanks

Theoretically couldn't you use a FDTI or CH340 programming adapter to interface with the UART on the hat? I'm currently using a Pi but would like to switch to something with a bit more horsepower such as x86 based SBC or laptop.

Yes... I have replied to your other thread with a little more details.
