Deffo one for you DaveAnders...
On the original MinnowBoard we used a USB mini b port (that had an UART to USB translator chip on the board)
On the MinnowBoard MAX we opted for a 6-pin TTL (3.3v) header.

I am an embedded systems engineer specializing in the integration of hardware and software at the lowest levels utilizing Open Source tools, bootloaders, and operating systems such as Linux to rapidly produce quality products. Past product developments have included the TCSX-1 thin client for Advantage Business Computer Systems, the M5900 handheld for American Microsystems Ltd., and the PandaBoard for Texas Instruments.
My specialty is complex problem solving to provide rapid solutions to both hardware and software issues. This includes reverse engineering existing legacy projects as well as processing, assimilating and filtering large amounts of datasheets, schematics, software source code, and management specifications.
