I recently bought a barcode scanner for a hobby project. I want to connect it to my Raspberry PI 3 B+. The interface for the camera is RS232 TTL serial. It has a flex cable about half the size of the standard Raspberry Pi camera cable. The specs are below.
After reading around, it seems that this is a CCD flex cable (w/ 12 pins) and that the standard Raspberry Pi accepts a CSI flex cable (w/ 15 pins). So, the TLDR is how can I connect the CCD flat cable to the Pi?
BOOT0 (Input): Low level FLASH to startup
VDD: 5V Input
RX (Input): TTL-232 Input
TX (Output): TTL-232 Input
USB_D- (Input/Output): USB_D-Singal
USB_D+ (Input/Output): USB_D+Singal
nTrig (Input): Trigger Input Signal
The product listing states that:
TTL Barcode Scanner that works with Arduino, Raspberry Pi and all other microcontrollers that support TTL serial.
