We have successfully connected a unit of simplertk2b v1 to the UART port of a raspberry pi4. We would like to do the same with the lite, using the included xbee/usb adapter.
Is there any way of using the RX/TX/GND/5V connections in the adapter board included with the lite to connect it to raspberry pi?
Will the 5V power affect the 3v3 required by the pi for the uart? This adapter board has not IOREF pin “exposed”.
We have successfully connected the lite to the pi using the pins directly (3v3, GND, TX,RX), so we would like to use the adapter just a socket.
Thank you very much in advance
It should also be possible to use Lite. Lite supports both 3.3V input and 5V input, depending on the pin that you connect.
Secondly it has always 3.3V TX/RX pins, it doesn’t have IOREF.
This and more info is available here: https://www.ardusimple.com/simplertk2blite-hookup-guide/
As you stated, we have been able to connect the lite “directly”, without using the included adapter. However, our question related to using the adapter. Can we connect to the lite by connecting the raspberry pi to the GND-5V-TX-RX of the included adapter?
Again, thank you very much
