Is it possible to use UART0 for any other purposes other than debugging? Can I use UART0 to talk to other uart devices?

    The UART0 is a normal UART which can be used also for debugging (e.g. you can boot into the BIOS menu, perform a linux installation, etc.), but not only.

    On ubilinux 4.0 is set as a terminal console but you can easily disable it.

    Can you elaborate on how to do this as I have tried to and have not been successful on an UP core board running ubilinux.

    Hi @abhishekgoudar

    If you are using ubilinux, it is not a supported distribution anymore.

    I would suggest to move to one of the supported option (Ubuntu 16.04/18.04 or Yocto if you need more customization and you want to build your own distribution).
