The pinout is in the Wiki. Start here:

I used a cheap USB serial adapter, originaly intended as "data cable"
for a Siemens cell phone. Works well.

recently. A rather frustrating experience. You explanations will help
me a lot for the things I plan to do in the future. Again: Thanks! :-)

existing code for BeagleBone / BeagleBone Black it shouldn't be hard
to grow support for it.
