Raspberry Pi Serial

Just so I don’t forget, my PL2303HX based TTL serial cable is supposed to be connected to the Raspberry Pi B+ in the following way:

Wire Color Wire GPIO header
Red 5V DC not connected
Black GND Pin 6
White RxD Pin 8 (TxD)
Green TxD Pin 10 (RxD)

Note that even though the power wire (red) is 5V, the signaling wires (white & green) are 3.3V TTL.

On Illumos, the Prolific chip uses the usbsprl driver.
