I have an OSEPP-manufactured Arduino BT: http://osepp.com/products/arduino-compatible-boards/osepp-bluetooth-arduino-compatible/ And I want to program it directly via an FTDI cable rather than using the bluetooth interface (it can be finicky sometimes). I am not sure whether or not the bluetooth chip on there (BlueGiga WT11) is interfering with regular cable operation. I connected all 6 of the pins correctly by soldering a screw terminal to the unpopulated spaces on pins 4 and 8 (NCTS and NRTS respectively) and all of the other pins being either on the pin headers or the power in. The 3v3 light is on as it should be in normal operation. And it also appears to be showing up when I scan for bluetooth devices. Pic:
If the Bluetooth chip is interfering with physical cable connections, is there a way that I can bypass it without breaking down the entire chip? I will definitely use the bluetooth interface, it's just that I would like a physical connection for the programming part.
