Hey,

On this Adafruit webpage: https://www.adafruit.com/product/4651 for the R503 fingerprint scanner, they attach it right on the I/O's of an Arduino Uno.

But, is this OK?
When I look at the datasheet, doesn't it mention that the UART needs 3.3V instead of the 5V

Can someone please tell me it's alright to hook it to a 5V Arduino?

Thanks
