Thanks to the OpenCore 16550 serial IP integration in POD, you can add at least 4 complete RS232 ports to your Armadeus board (depending on the FPGA capacity).


 $ make linux-menuconfig
Device Drivers  ---> 
    Armadeus specific drivers  ---> 
        FPGA Drivers   ---> 
            <M>   OpenCore 16550 serial IP driver
 $ make


Assuming you have previously loaded your FPGA with the corresponding IP:

 # modprobe 8250
 # modprobe 16550_ocore

Now you should have as much /dev/ttySN as 16650 cores you put in your bitfile.
