@will @peekay123 @ScruffR The B-series has 1 serial port (with RTS and CTS, nice), but for my design I would require a second serial port.
Would it be possible to convert the nordic USB D+ and D- linens to RS485 as well? I know there are FTI chips, but these require drivers (Linux for example). Is there a solution for this?

Thank you, all input is greatly appreciated

@GrtVHecke, you cannot “convert” the USB data lines. Instead, you may want to look at an external I2C to Serial bridge like this one by @rickkas7:
