Wiring

Connect FONA to your Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black by following the appropriate steps below.

Raspberry Pi

Wire FONA to the Raspberry Pi as follows. If you aren't familiar with the pinout of the Raspberry Pi, see this page for an image of the header pins and their functionality.
  • FONA GND to Raspberry Pi ground.
  • FONA Vio to Raspberry Pi 3.3 volt power.
  • FONA GND to FONA Key.
    • Note that this wiring will force FONA to stay active all the time the Raspberry Pi has power.
  • FONA TX to Raspberry Pi RXD.
  • FONA RX to Raspberry Pi TXD.
