Users can add a USB serial dongle that uses the FTDI 2232 or compatible chip such as FTDI US232R-100 cable. Most any Linux compatible USB serial dongle will work - but we only tested using the FTDI chipset.

You can use pySerial module in your user added python camera code. There is an example app_ext_serial.py application extension you can examine to see how to send and receive serial data over a USB dongle connected to the camera.
