I am trying to integrate the Bluz Gateway with an Electron. I am designing a custom PCB with various sensors and I cannot use the gateway shield since 12/36 pins (which are hanging out of the shield) are going to be harder to integrate on my PCB.
- Custom printing a Gateway -
a. From the looks of the schematic, can I just buy a Bluz Module and recreate the circuit. That way, I won’t have any “hanging” pins, which will make integration so much easier. Is there something more than just putting the hardware together?
- Trying to make Gateway Shield work -
b. Can the Electron on the Gateway Shield still use SPI, UART etc to communicate with other sensors??? Or does using the gateway shield completely eliminate all prospects of the Electron communicating with other sensors over SPI, UART, Serial1 etc?
