PSOC 5LP - RS232 & ThingMagic NANO
Currently I am working on a project to connect a 5LP PSOC (CY8C5868AXI-LP035) to a RFID reader called the ThingMagic NANO. I was curious if anyone had ever done something similar to this.
Mainly I am curious if my implementation of the UART on the PSOC device is correct. I just feel as though it is so simple that I am missing something.
If anyone can discuss RS232 with me or specifically talk about the ThingMagic NANO (or other RFID readers) that would be great.
I've uploaded a picture of my setup.
I'm using the CY8CKIT-050 as my target device. I have a custom DB9 male cable that I build which connects pins 2 (Tx) and 3 (Rx) to the RFID reader. The white wire is connected from the reader's RS232TX to the PSOC's RX. The red wire si connected from the RS232RX to the PSOC's TX. The additional white and red wire connect that P7 area on the CY8CKIT-050 to the PSOC's actual pin definitions in software. The RX pin for the UART is P6_0 and TX pin for the UART is P6_6. So the wires connect accordingly.
The problem is I can't connect to the RFID reader. I'm not sure if it is on my end in terms of hardware (meaning the PSOC, my wiring, etc) or if it is on the software end with ThingMagic's API or my UART implementation. I'm following the guide (http://www.corerfid.com/rfid%20shop/thingmagic/mercuryapi_programmerguid...) to attempt to integrate these two devices.
Thank you everyone and anyone for the help/discussion!!
