5.6. Initialization

To initialize the U-Boot firmware running on your canyonlands board, you have to connect a terminal to the board's serial console port.

The default configuration of the console port on the canyonlands board uses a baudrate of 115200/8N1 (115200 bps, 8 Bit per character, no parity, 1 stop bit, no handshake).

If you are running Linux on your host system we recommend either kermit or cu as terminal emulation programs. Do not use minicom, since this has caused problems for many users, especially for software download over the serial port. Other possibilities include screen and picocom, which both seem to work well.

For the configuration of your terminal program see section 4.1. Serial Console Access

Make sure that both hardware and software flow control are disabled.
