Pretty disappointed with the lack of support for onewire on the netduino 1 running 4.2

 

I'm looking to upgrade from my netduino 1 and netduino 1 plus, but with the price of the netduino 2 compared to the raspberry pi and the lack of support for the netduino 1, I'm really thinking of leaving the netduino community and moving to a device with better support.

 

It is a shame as I really like the netduino devices, but the backing from the supplier is lacking and understaffed.

 

Onewire support was promised for netduino 1 with 4.2 but it never happened. Real shame.

Michael, I just read thru this 9 page thread only to realize one wire probably doesn't work with NetduinoPlus v1 4.2

I am also thinking about moving over to the Raspberry Pi and was wondering if you would us Mono C#?

Just to chime in. It's been a long time since I've dabbled with ND+ and OneWire, but I got it working. I believe I had to use an alpha build, but I was able to connect DS18B20 sensor to ND and it is working since. Don't really know which version it is and I can verify it either, unfortunately. 

 

Search through the forums and you might be able to find it.

Hello,

 

check this one:

"OK, here's my new 1-wire + watchdog firmware for Netduino Plus, based on official 4.2.0.1, with CW2's 1-wire, compiled with RVDS 4.1."

Yes this does look good, but I am using the non-plus version (it is designed as a remote sensor with Xbee and solar power).

 

Just wish it was official support.

IMHO you will not get any update for ND. Maybe someone with proper knowledge could compile provided sources from github for Netduino non-plus version.

Okay I went a purchased an Arduino to have a play with it. Glad I did, I've ported all my code, got the ds18b20 chip working straight away and I'm not looking back :D

 

From what I've found.

 

  • Arduino IDE is much much lighter weight than visual studio. Seriously the number of hours I've spent downloading various VS updates, running firmware upgrades on the Netduino and then finally not even able to use the ds18b20 chip is crazy. What a waste of time.
  • Arduino IDE works great on the Mac! Woo, I no longer need to use bootcamp just to write a few lines of code.
  • Cheaper! The Arduino is cheaper.
  • More reliable. .net web server would crash every few days on the Netduino for no reason, the board itself is fine (my code was still running) but the web server would stop listening on the network.
  • VS is much slower compiling code, always waiting.
  • Arduino has heaps more documentation and a larger community.
  • Lower power usage chips/boards if needed.

Honestly there is no downside to switching to Arduino for my needs, I'm much happier with it.

 

The Netduino 3 is just more expensive and not actually any better for my needs (uses more power, more expensive and WiFi isn't useful for what I want).

 

The Netduino looked like a really cool platform, but after using the Arduino there is just no reason to use Netduino.

 

If I need some more processing power I'll go get a Pi 2 or Chip computer running full linux.

 

Bye guys!
