Connecting FTDI header to nano to read serial monitor?



  • Hey,

    is it possible to connect the FTDI header normally used to programm the pro mini to my nano to read the serial monitor? I didn't thought about positioning the nano properly before soldering and the usb port is not accessible while running. Therefore I thought about connecting GND, RX and TX to my FTDI and read serial. Will this work or will it fry the nano or FTDI?



  • It will work.



  • well... I tried, but didn't see anything on serial. Just having GND<--> GND, TX<-->RX and RX<-->TX. Anything further to connect?

    Did you check RX and TX channels? My serial to usb converter has the labels already switched (so I have to connect Rx to Rx and Tx to Tx).
