Using a Pololu Programmer v2 as USB to Serial for communicating with an Arduino Uno R3

Using a Pololu Programmer v2 as USB to Serial interface for communicating with an Arduino Uno R3

I have a Pololu programmer v2 and an Arduino Uno R3 development board (see the pictures). I want to use the Pololu programmer to send and receive characters between Arduino Uno and my laptop.

The question is: Can I plug directly the Pololu into Arduino Uno like this:

Pololu - Arduino
GND----GND
A----13
VCC----12
TX----11
RX----10
B----9

(where A, VCC and B are disabled from the configuration utility of Pololu)?

Arduino Uno R3 runs a software serial on pins 10 and 11.

Hello.

Yes, your connections seem fine, assuming that the SoftwareSerial object defines pin 10 as TX and pin 11 as RX.
