BeagleBone and USB Serial Converter

If you would like to extend the capabilities of your Beaglebone you can start by using a USB Serial Converter to reach simple serial devices from USB (hint: you can plug a USB hub on the Beaglebone and use several converter to multiply the serial ports).

I used a cheap converter available on ebay

The type is: cp2102 or more commonly found as cp210x. (image taken from the ebay vendor)
