Hi i want to know the  UsbController[] controllers = UsbController.GetControllers(); method Returns the available  USB ports or it returns only the available USBClients...?

Because i want to use a USBHost, So weather this method returns the USBClient only or both the Client and the HOST...?






Regards YuvaRaja...

i dont think you can use netduino as usb host, at least there is no easy way.


the usb port is used for deployment, so you have to change this first to an serial port.

than iam not sure if the firmware implements usb-host support, and from there it gets really messy :(



//edit: a usb-host shield could be a good solution.

Hi Noom, i have my own PCB.That has one debug port and one USB host port.

The UsbController[] controllers = UsbController.GetControllers(); method returns both the debug port and the USB host port.

So i need to know how to implement the USB host after detecting the host port in NETMF...?
