  • You can power the MAX3232 from 3.3v, so just feed that into the Vcc pin, and it will work. The RS232 output will still be ±5v even powered off 3.3v

  • Thanks for the advice! I think I will put the breakout and bare module footprints on the PCB, to give me the most flexibility. Now that I have the breakout, I can see that it would be hard to desolder w/o hot air. Good idea about putting components under it!

    However, now I have a different issue. I can only perform some of the set commands. I'm not sure why only certain ones work. I went down the list and set everything to their defaults, here's the serial log: http://pastebin.com/t8Gb4Hg3 . Am I missing something obvious? Why are some of them giving an ERR?

  • Is it possible to desolder the module from the breakout board?

    I'm in the process of creating a custom PCB, and would like to prototype with the breakout board, then remove to module and mount it directly on the PCB once I fabricate it.

    However, looking at the PCB, there are 6 ground connections underneath the module. Are these soldered to the breakout PCB? Or are all soldered connections accessible?

  • Is the add to cart button not showing up for anyone else? The "Dings and dents" page says it's in stock and there was a new product post on it. I really want to get my hands on one!

No public wish lists :(
