MFRC 522 Setup

Hi,

I'm new to programming on the Latte Panda and I'm hoping to learn it's full capabilities.

I am currently working on an attendance application that uses the Latte Panda and the MFRC 522 to read an RFID cards and process it. I'm using a C# application configured for the integration with the Latte Panda.

I'm having trouble with setting up the MFRC522 on the Latte Panda. I've managed to get it to work on an Arduino board and thought I could use the same pin out configuration for the Latte Panda. This is the pin layout:

* -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* MFRC522 Arduino
* Reader/PCD Uno/101
* Signal Pin Pin
* -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* RST/Reset RST 9
* SPI SS SDA(SS) 10
* SPI MOSI MOSI 11
* SPI MISO MISO 12
* SPI SCK SCK 13

I must be doing something wrong as I'm not getting any output from the MFRC522.

My idea here is to read the input from the MFRC522 and listen on the serial port in C# application to read the RFID UID and then process it. I hope that I'm on the right track.

Is there a way to setup the MFRC522 on the Latte Panda. And how does the MFRC522 integrate with the C# application.

Kind Regards
