Wiring Arduino to Linx RF reciever

Hey Guys!

I'm just doing a little project on the side and was hoping to get some input here from our experts! :D

So i recently bought this RF receiver (http://www.linxtechnologies.com/resources/data-guides/rxm-xxx-lr.pdf) and was wondering how to wire this up to the arduino. I know this is a pretty silly question but i'm new to the arduino team and am just trying to get my feet wet on the electronics side! (complete newbie)

So, in for this module to work with my arduino, all i would need to do is, based on the data sheet:

Pin 4 - ground Pin 5 - 5v Pin 8 - Digital Pin 0 (Rx)

Would this be a correct way to wire the device up to the arduino in order to receive data?

Thanks guys!

Operating Voltage VCC 2.7 3.0 3.6 VDC

Pin 5 - 5v

I don't think I'd recommend that.

I count 5 connections that need to be made. OK, 2 of them are ground. An antenna would really be a useful addition.

Oops!

Pin 5: 3.3V Pin 16: an antenna Pin 15: ground

good call PaulS!

So would those connections be enough for me to connect to the arduino and start receiving data? With a little programming of course.

They should be. Of course, debugging will be an issue, since you have the serial port tied up.

You could use a different digital pin and NewSoftSerial to receive data, leaving the hardware serial port free so Serial can be used for debugging.

What i plan on doing is have one arduino be the receiver and the other arduino be the transmitter for debugging
