Connectivity

You can connect the AS-289R2 Thermal Print Shield to Arduino shield form factor mbed plafroms.

Note

To use D1 serial pin of the Nucleo platforms, you have to remove SB13 and SB14 then bridge SB62 and SB63. This will enable the processor to communicate with the shield using the default serial connection.
