Hello, I am new to RFID.  I want to use the Cottonwood with the Raspberry Pi.  I have found posts where people have got it to work and have found posts where they cannot. 


So I wonder if my assumptions are correct:


1) The UART version is best for the RPI

2) I connect the TX to RX and RX to TX and use the 3.3V for power


I then should be able to read data using the RPI?  Has anyone here successfully used a PI with the Cottonwood and could give me some pointers before I purchase one?


Thanks in advance for any help.
