you need a way to confirm that the program uploaded actually did
something.  this means connecting to the serial port on the FPGA board
with a program that talks to serial ports.  one such program is called

also this is completely meaningless if the FPGA binary doesn't
actually configure the FPGA to *do* something involving the serial
console.  however in this particular case the Litex BIOS has in fact
