The following is an alternative hub-8port">Recommended you read when getting your Arduino

(or any other PIC)

plugged into your community (ethernet) - make use of an unwanted NSLU2!

The NSLU2 is 3.3v and Arduino is 5v, even

though the NSLU2 and Arduino both talk TTL. Effortless deal with - convey a resistor!

Only 3 cords are required - pins 3, 2 and 4 inside the NSLU2. You may not are going to be connected

the capability pin.

For every the family table underneath, opt for the light stripe - that is the performance pin.

NSLU2 - pin-right out of the J2 serial slot

Pin 1 - 3.3v, pin 1

boasts a white stripe right next to it

Pin 2 - RXD, get from Arduino

to NSLU2 (must-have resistor)

Pin 3 - TXD, send out from NSLU2 to Arduino

Pin 4 - GND, floor bond

This post is written in guide on the "Freeduino" - a BBB (bare bones table) style. Always make sure that everything

is operated off and unplugged. Then, link up the TTL pins tagged "RX", "TX" and "GND" in

the Better business bureau to your

appropriate pins located on the NSLU2. The 4 serial harbour TTL pins by the NSLU2 are

observable just below the battery to

the right.

You have got to setting a 10k resistor regarding the

Arduino plus the NSLU2 on pin 2 in the NSLU2 therefore the

5v coming from the Arduino are lower to dependable quantities.

Now electricity in the Arduino and NSLU2 that is certainly flased with Debian (SlugOS definitely should effort also). Deploy minicom (apt-get) and

initiate up minicom and set the serial dock to9600 and

ttyS0, 8N1.

If the connections are correct, the TTL pins/port on the Arduino and NSLU2 are functional you should now see the output

from the Arduino. Be sure you have pre-programmed your Arduino with a program that outputs text

at the proper baud rate if you do not see anything. Also you should try powering off both the products, force support and try in the future. It is possible the

serial port will not work if you have made other hardware mods such as overclocking on the NSLU2.

You have to point a 10k resistor between the

Arduino plus NSLU2 on pin 2 of NSLU2 to be sure the

5v coming from the Arduino are decreased to protected values.

Now performance inside the NSLU2 and Arduino this really is flased with Debian (SlugOS would be wise to task also). Put in minicom (apt-get) and commence up minicom and set the serial slot to9600 and

ttyS0, 8N1.

The TTL pins/port on the Arduino and NSLU2 are functional you should now see the output from the Arduino

if the connections are correct. Be sure you have pre-programmed your Arduino with a program that outputs text

at the proper baud rate if you do not see anything. Also make an effort powering off at the same time devices, electricity validate and attempt all over

again. It is possible the

serial port will not work if you have made other hardware mods such as overclocking on the NSLU2.
