The AK-SDFS-UART-B board allows you to read/write data from/to an SD card using a serial TTL port (UART). The board supports the FAT file system so the files can be read back from the SD on a PC/MAC.
Using a simple protocol (libraries included) you can read/write 4 files concurrently, in text or binary mode. Using only four wires (TX, RX, VCC and GND) you can read and write from the SD using very small microprocessors, even 8-bit ones. The baudrate can be adjusted from 9600 up to 460800 bps.
We have prepared a library that encapsulates the communication protocol and the source code can be downloaded. There is also an Arduino sketch demonstration available for download.
The AK-SDFS-UART-B is perfect to be used as a data logger, for sensors and debug information. It supports SD and SDHC cards.
We also have a micro SD version of this board.
