I recently bought Freescale's FRDM-FXS-MULTI-B, and have been trying to integrate it with an Arduino UNO. The board descriptions say that it has the shield layout that matches that of an Arduino shield. So in theory, I should be able to integrate it fine.
The problem comes when I plug it in and try to program the Arduino. As soon as I plug it in, the board resets and hangs. If I try to upload a simple code (just reading the analogue signal from the light sensor), the IDE hangs when uploading. Sometimes, I can fix it by removing the shield and pressing the reset button, but sometimes that doesn't work: the computer doesn't recognise the Arduino on the port, and the IDE removes the port from the Port Selection option. When I do remove it and it resumes functioning normally, and I re-attach the shield, the board resets and hangs again, until I go into the Serial Monitor.
With this board, I realised the Bluetooth module is connected to the Serial Receive pin, which explains the hang in the IDE, but I cannot understand why it resets and hangs when I plug it in.
Does anyone have any experience with this board, and can help me out? Why can I not find any tutorials online? With the multitude of sensors on this shield, I'm guessing you can access them via normal I2C and SPI communications, right? How do you use the Bluetooth module on the board?
