Title: Serial Port
Post by: wafel on October 08, 2013, 01:48:40 PM
Hello all,
i've just ordered TinyD Starter Kit with the proto boards.

Let me ask - is there any Serial Port (UART) on the TinyD so i can connect external gps module ?



Best regards!

Hi Wafel,

Definitely!  There is one hardware UART that is also used by the USB to program it.  In addition, you can use the Arduino SoftwareSerial to make any other pins on the TinyDuino (which is basically just a shrunk down Arduino Uno) into a software UART.  This is what we use for a number of our TinyShields that use UARTs, include the GPS TinyShield.

Thanks,

Ken
