  1. Brand noob here. Wondering how the heck am I supposed to connect to the two male rows of pins on either side of this board? There's a female row underneath. Am I supposed to turn the thing over? Does Digikey or ? have some sort of clippy thing so I can use plain connector wire?
  2. So I'm working on a fingerprint scanner project with this repo written for arduino for the scanner I'm using. I am trying to make it work with an MSP430G2553 instead of the Arduino Uno. When I try using this library in Energia, it can't find the scanner despite being wired on the launchpad the same way that it is wired on the Arduino (External 5V source, Arduino pin 2 --> MSP430 pin 1.1, Arduino pin 3 --> MSP430 pin 1.2). The code compiles and the serial monitor outputs the test looking for the scanner, but it has yet to be able to find it. If anyone could give me any help with this, it would be greatly appreciated. Energia ino sketch is attached. EDIT: So after making myself more familiar with the code and the C++ imports, it seems the scanner works in 4 phases: 1) Take image 2) If image is a finger, convert it to digital features 3) Compare fingerprint features against features of enrolled fingerprints 4) Able to return result for the comparison and if its a match, return the ID# These lines: SoftwareSerial mySerial(5, 6); //Define serial communication on two pins Adafruit_Fingerprint finger = Adafruit_fingerprint(&mySerial); Seem to be whats handling all the fingerprint logic. So the issue isn't with the scanner, its with the communication between scanner and the MSP, most likely that I'm somehow defining output pins 5 and 6 (P1_3 and P1_4) incorrectly so they are not handling the scanner at all. fingerprint.ino
