The pinout is compatible with the FTDI USB-serial cable. You'll notice the in the attached image TX/RX are swapped from the pinout listed below - this is because on the FTDI cable, TX and RX are defined with respect to the host, while on the kit the pins are defined with respect to the microcontroller on the kit.

1. GND (marked with an arrow)
2. GND
3. NC
4. RX (data to the kit)
5. TX (data from the kit)
6. NC
