From the Forums: Control multiple hardware serial or SPI devices on Arduino Zero

NewImage

Thanks to Kim from the Adafruit forums for posting up about using multiple serial or SPI devices on Arduino Zero

Many people have seen the new Arduino Zero/M0 Pro and this is a good low power chip.

But this only have 1 serial port to connect your serial data devices, Serial1.

But I found a way around it, I got Serial2 to work..

With the use of Serial2 you can now connect something like Adafruit FONA on Serial1 and GPS on Serial2. If you use FONA 808 you don’t need 2 serial ports, but if you only got the 800L you need 2 serial ports, one for FONA and one for GPS.
