Netduino GO! Touchscreen and Relay modules
Posted 09 April 2012 - 06:22 PM
It appears that many folks in the Netduino community aren't aware that [nwazet is producing GO! modules
First, we have created a cool touchscreen module, making it super easy to build user interfaces and display images with your Netduino GO!
Them we also built a Relay module, capable of switching big loads up to 16 Amps:
Even though we are just starting out in the Open Source / Open Hardware business, we're super-excited about the potential of the Netduino GO! and we are fully committed to the Netduino community (just ask Chris Walker and Stefan ;-)). We'll continue contributing modules, tutorials, source code and designs as we have been doing it for over a year now.
-Fabien & Bertrand.

I did figure out the modules plug, the dark tan bar opens and allow the film connector to enter. I needed to use an optivisor to see how to plug the display in and to make sure it was properly located in the connector.
It came up with the Nwazet firmware display. I am waiting on the new libraries to be updoaded for use. That way I should not need to try and load the correct references manually.
Ok, maybe I did something wrong, I don't have the SDK yet so I don't have a firmware on the Go board, but when I plug the usb into the Go, the lights light up and all of the port lights go out. I don't get any display on the touchscreen. Do I have to have the SDK and initialize the port for the display to power on or did I break it on day one? All i've done with the touch screen is attach the screen to the board and plug it in. Let me know.

All I have done so far is to plug the display module in to Netduino Go!, when I plugged the USB plug in to power up the main board the display came on instanly with Nwazet logo etc and a yellow back ground.
I have not tried to code the module yet. I did try to open one of the sample and had a bunch of reference errors that should go away with the new 4.2.
I would attach some pictures but it would be best to wait until Fabien posts his guide.
What port did you use on the Go?

You should try out the test application coming with the display, otherwise it won't do much by itself ;-)
This application will not change even after Secret Labs releases the Netduino GO! SDK.

If you've received your hardware already, please grab the Netduino Go core libraries from the following thread:
We're working on and testing an installer, which will be ready soon. In the meantime, these simple instructions will get you up and running with Netduino Go and the Nwazet modules.
Thanks for that Chris! I installed the libraries and ran a simple Debug and lo and behold, my Nwazet screen came right on (phew). Now...time to build!

Hey Fabien, quick question, are the touch screens supposed to come with a stylus?
We're not bundling a stylus with the touchscreen to keep cost down as much as possible: we figured that most people would already have a left-over Nintendo DS stylus or similar solution ;-) But we could carry styli as an option on the site.
Thanks for bringing this up!
