Connect to the Board

With IoT Yocto, there are several options to connect your host PC to the Genio 350-EVK board for debugging and development purposes:

  • UART: UART0 port provides access to Boot ROM, bootloader and kernel console access in IoT Yocto.

  • USB: USB0 port can be configured as an Ethernet Control Model(ECM) device or an RNDIS device, to provide virtual ethernet connections to the board with an USB cable.


  • Windows 7/10: support RNDIS, not support ECM

  • Ubuntu 18.04: support ECM and RNDIS

  • After v22.0.1, RNDIS is defaut to be supoorted by Ubuntu and Windows.


The kernel console and SSH console in IoT Yocto can be logged-in with root without password.

The purpose is to ease development and debugging. This configuration is not suitable for production purposes. Therefore, please make sure you change the account and permission security configurations before using IoT Yocto in a production environment.
