Hi All,


Firstly, thanks for taking the time to read this!


Next a bit of context:




The Requirement

Give the SLN-POS-RDR internet connectivity so I can make a HTTPS POST as per the SIM7000 guidelines.



What I've found so far:

- There's no user guide for the TWR-SHIELD, even though there is one specifically called out on the last page of the quick start guide (confirmed by NXP support, although I really hope this is wrong)

- There is no example code showing how to configure NXP hardware to interface with an Arduino shield through the TWR-SHIELD. I expect there should have been something with an import "Arduino.h" somewhere...

- NXP support were

- Botletics were unable to provide pure c examples, there's are all C++ and are targeted at natvie Arduino MCU

- The "Tower Geeks" community referred to in the Quick Start Guide doesn't seem to exist anymore?


I've been researching for weeks now with no success, so thanks in advance if you can assist at all there! Even a basic guideline on how to bring in the Arduino.h code into an NXP project would be perfect.


If there's a better way to give the SLN-POS-RDR internet access then please let me know, I was really surprised that there's no native NXP IoT hardware we can plug in!!!
