- Pin Function:
|Pin Number||Pin Name||Description|
|1||VCC||Used to Power the module, typically 3.3V is used|
|2||RST||Reset pin – used to reset or power down the module|
|3||Ground||Connected to Ground of system|
|4||IRQ||Interrupt pin – used to wake up the module when a device comes into range|
|5||MISO/SCL/Tx||MISO pin when used for SPI communication, acts as SCL for I2c and Tx for UART.|
|6||MOSI||Master out slave in pin for SPI communication|
|7||SCK||Serial Clock pin – used to provide clock source|
|8||MOSI||Acts as Serial input (SS) for SPI communication, SDA for IIC and Rx during UART|
