Doubt it.  The product description is inadequate, it does not state
the serial voltage.  It does say supply voltage range.  It does not
have any serial control signal strapping.  And it has an RS232
connector, which nobody should need these days.  ;-}

Get a USB adapter instead.  As long as the adapter is for 3.3V serial,
it will work with the XO-1 host serial port.  The adapter is powered
from the USB host.

The same seller has a more appropriate adapter for a lower price:

There are now very many alternative adapters that are compatible.
