I'm designing a hardware containing the mbed and the WIZ610WI
wireless module, and I want to connect those using a RS232 interface. But the wireless module requires a 5-wire connection, with the RTS and CTS lines, and I could not figure out how to use these connections with mbed UART.
Can anybody show me a way to configure a serial port in mbed that includes RTS/CTS? Would it be fatal for the aforementioned purposes to ignore these lines in my design?
Thanks in advance!

Hi all, new to the forums. I've been racking my brain for days on on how to use a linear actuator to cause a part to rotate 180? on axis with the actuator. It's similar to this youtube video I found using a high helix lead screw, but some of these lead screws have high static loads in excess of what my actuator can provide. Ideas? I'm open to anything as long as it's really compact.

Kickstarter or gogetfunding, gofundme are some crowdfunding websites. There are also some big funders, but then you need to have a nearly or completed project with a practical usability (many people might need it), even for crowdfunding. In every case you need a good documented and clear goal, with a good and smooth presentation.

Google is your friend, or buy an Axon from this website to support this great site and forum. Ebay, Sparkfun, Adafruit, DrRobotics, etc
But they almost al require paypal or creditcard.
