Compatible Shields and Accessories
Posted 05 September 2010 - 08:42 PM
A few community members have asked for a list of tested/compatible shields, components, etc. Let's make that list here.
There are literally thousands of components out there, so this will serve as a very brief introductory list--but let's not worry about making it a really long introductory list
A few notes:
1. Please link to the manufacturer's website where possible--for details on the accessory
2. If you've built a project, please link to it (or its post) showcasing your use of the accessory
3. If the accessory requires C# drivers, please link to them here...

Adafruit proto shield
Adafruit GPS logger shield (GPS connectivity + SD card)
NOTE: SD card feature requires Netduino v4.1.1 (Alpha 1) or newer firmware.
Adafruit data logging shield (SD card + real-time clock)
NOTE: there are drivers for this RTC (if someone has a link, we'll add it here).

Lets see, the Sparkfun Protoshield works fine. So does their GPS shield (in "DLINE" mode, not UART). I haven't tried the XBee shield yet mainly because I can't stand stacking shields.

I have the sparkfun proto, xbee, gps shields, all work fine.
Also the Seeed studio sd card shield works fine with the 4.1.1 alpha firmware.

Just don't forget to use 3.3 Vdc for VCC or you could spend a whole afternoon troubleshoot the hardware ( I wonder how he knew that? )

When combined with the Adafruit Data Logger SD Shield:
And when passing small byte arrays (remember maximum RAM on Netduino is 60k and that the 22.214.171.124 firmware is needed for SD) from the SD card to the MP3 shield, it works rather well, if only a little jittery.
There's sample code for sending an MP3 file's byte arrays here:
It's not intended for the Netduino, but replacing the following pins does the trick:
BSYNC -> Pins.GPIO_PIN_D2
DREQ -> Pins.GPIO_PIN_D3
RESET -> [Any unused pin?]
CS -> Pins.GPIO_PIN_D9
NOTE: I didn't really know what pin to assign for "reset", but it doesn't seem to be necessary in order to work.
The volume is set to the value "1" in the code, but it really should be a hex value (see the spec sheet on SparkFun's product page).

PoE?!? That's pretty cool. It will probably work (although it never hurts to double-check with the vendor to make sure they support incoming 3.3V signals).
I <3 PoE.

Like the latest Arduino Ethernet shield it requires an ISPC connection.
Sorry about that, I found the schematic and it will work without the ISPC. There are three zero ohm resister used as jumpers that just have to be moved to convert from ISP to DI MOSI. Duh!
