MOD-Pulse Data Output to Arduino Yun

Hello,

I am trying to transfer the data from the MOD-Pulse board to an Arduino Yun as part of anothe projcet that is Arduino specific.  I am struggling to get the data exchange to work.

The MOD-Pulse is showing the correct data on the LCD right out of the box (SPO2 and Pulse match fingertip device used to verify).  The question is, how do I get the data from the MOD-Pulse to the Arduino YUN.

Any help someone can provide correct port connections between the two boards and coding on the Arduino to get the data on the YUN?

Thanks,

Looking at the webpage: https://www.olimex.com/Products/Modules/Biofeedback/MOD-PULSE/open-source-hardware

"Do I need additional hardware to get everything going?
Yes, you need at least a compatible probe for the PROBE connector. You might want to purchase a MOD-USB-RS232 so you can receive the data on a personal computer as well"

Which points to this:

Unfortunately, I know nothing about this board -- but hopefully this will help. It seems like you can hook up this MOD-USB to a computer to get the data; therefore, I think you might be able to grab the data pins from the USB connector and hook them into two open digital I/O pins on the Arduino board. Then the Arduino sketch would be simply reading the serial data from the I/O pins you select at the baud rate you expect.

Or perhaps use the YUN's USB host functionality, which I am unfamiliar with.

Hope this helps get you started and good luck!
