Hello, I am very basic user and have little Electronic background. I am C# developer , I had done some PIC based projects using C, This board seems to be very appealing to me and wanted to check if I port one of my earlier Project to this board, will I be able to load the code to the Microcontroller and use just the controller to actual application board with out Netduino ? I presume this to be a development board ? Any pointers on how do I do this will be very helpful.

Netduino is production hardware, as well as it is good for prototyping.

If you wan't to make an independent board, you can take the *.brd files, change the layout to what you need, and then send it to production.

There is a Netduino Mini, which is a way more compact board than the regular Netduino.

However, if you manage to design your own board from scratch, ie using a STM32F mcu as on the Netduino Plus 2 and Netduino Go, you should be able to use a modified firmware and get .NET MF running on the board.

To sum up, it is possible, but you have to know your datasheets, electronics and requires a chip that is beeing supported by the .NET MF.

Nicky pretty much summed it up. The Netduino is a production ready board as well as a great environment for prototyping. You can design your own Netduino type board as the hardware / software is open source and the schematics are available but it is unlikely you will be able to product a Netduino any cheaper than what they are sold for. Depending on the type of Netduino you are using (Standard, Plus, Plus 2, GO) you can design a shield, GO Module or basically whatever you need for your project and use a Netduino as your core.
