DEVKIT-MPC5744P UART via OpenSDA MCU possible?

Hi all,

just a quick question about the possible native ways to simple transfer data (without JTAG) between a PC and the DEVKIT-MPC5744P.

Am I right in my assumption that the board cannot use the CDC Serial Port provided by the OpenSDA chip as an UART Tx/Rx connection to the running target processor? (Since I cannot find any pin descriptions for it. The documentation of the DEVKIT-MPC5748G, as an example, actually specifies them.)


So do I have to use the LINFlexD_0 Bus in combination with a LIN to RS232/USB adapter to make that easily work with a terminal emulator on the PC? Or are there actually easier/other ways?


Many thanks.
