Connecting UART Barcode Scanner with stm32f072rb nucleo board
I'm trying to figure out how to connect a UART barcode scanner with my stm32f072rb microcontroller. This is the barcode scanner that I am using: https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/Barcode_Scanner_Module
I'm trying to use the UART interface and I have been able to connect the cables correctly to the pins on the board(VCC to 5v, GND to GND, TXD to PA_10, RXD to PA_9). I have tried using example code on mbed's Serial API of passing data from an external UART device to the PC Serial monitor but I am not able to get anything to display to my serial monitor.
If anyone can help me out/give me some guidance where to look or send me a simple program that can output the barcode to the serial monitor via UART communication that would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Connect wire from scanner TxD to RxD on board and scanner RxD to TxD on board and test again.
