I got myself a netduino2 and the LED blinks like hell. And I don't stop here!


My plan is to port a simple java robot software to .NET. Its BSim on


I only want to port the robot software, not the simulation part. 


Is this possible on my hardware? 192kb desn't sound to much and my first "blink" already uses 4kb (12kb for the pdb). 


The original project uses 80 classes with some 100lines of code each.

Hi malcomfrexner, We're running projects with 10,000+ of lines of code in 192KB of flash. NETMF IL code is surprisingly compact :) Welcome to the Netduino community, Chris

Those *.pdb files contain information for Visual Studio debugger, they are not deployed to the microcontroller board - .NET Micro Framework uses a little bit different mechanism than "full" desktop .NET Framework, the actual code that uses microcontroller flash memory is stored in *.pe files (which are basically stripped-down .dll-s).

Btw, Visual Studio has a tool to convert Java to C#.  It takes care of a lot of the stupid stuff, and it works pretty good.  It doesn't convert GUI components though.
