Title: Need suggestion on connecting the mbed and a wireless module with RS232
Post by: Banart on April 10, 2017, 03:59:36 AM
Hello, people!

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!
