Simultaneous RFID Tag Reader Hookup Guide
There are two main options for hooking up this board. Depending on how you plan to communicate with the board will change which method is recommended for you.
Communicating via USB UART Serial
Plug in your serial breakout board via USB to your computer, and hook it up to the right angle headers that you just soldered to your SRTR.
Communicating via Arduino-Compatible Board
We’ve used the SRTR with the RedBoard and other Uno compatible boards. Unfortunately the Leonardo and Mega don’t support Softwareserial RX on pin 2 so you’ll need to wire from pin 2 on the shield to pin D11. Additional pins will work for software RX but see the Softwareserial page for more information.
Shield with stackable headers installed.
Next, install the shield onto the Arduino of your choice. We use the SparkFun RedBoard.
