Gateway Pins mapping with E-Board


#1

I am trying to use the Gateway with a Particle E-Series evaluation board.

Which pins need to be connected on the Gateway board?

Thank you.

That hasn’t been tested, we don’t officially support hooking the E seriers to the gateway shield. Just fill disclaimer, though I suppose it could work.

However, if you want to try, you just need to map the E series pins to the Photo/Electron pins. You need to hook up pins A2-A6 along with the TX and RX pin, along with GND.

Thanks @eric.

I tried connecting VIN to VIN, but the E board did not receive power … What is the recommended way to power the E-board(separate power supply)?

You should definitely power the E series independently. The LDO on board the gateway shield isn’t sufficient for the Electron or E series.
