In Topic: Netduino + Thermocouple

Offhand, it sounds like a good idea. What's cookin?

It depends on what the resistance was. Can you drive it with 3.3v and get a reasonable set of values back?

Yea, i'm going to try that right now, so we can only use 3.3V on the analog pins? not 5v? I better do some reading before I burn this thing.

Had this idea as I was smoking a turkey for thanksgiving. I do briskets and chickens often and if I do more than 2 hours roast/smoke I tend to get a bit anxious and worried... Also had one incident where I ran out of coals and didn't know about it. So, this way I want two probes to return values for me, one from the meat and the other from the grill. I have a small motherboard fan I will be driving as well, which will control the amount of air that gets into smoker (big green egg). And of course doing this from my windows phone was an easy bonus, I figured i'll just have an app on my computer update a spreadsheet on my skydrive and i'll see the changes on my phone. No need for a webserver or anything like that.

In Topic: Having SAM-BA issues while reflashing N+

27 November 2012 - 05:51 AM

Hello, I have a windows 8 pc that I'm trying to setup to play with my N+, everything worked fine with the last project (on Win7) and now decided to do another project and not getting anywhere.

First I couldn't load any projects on it, so decided I'd reflash it. I did the 3V3 + copper pin, and it came back as GPS camera.. So far so good. Loaded SAM-BA, started it up, selected the chip and the com port but I get an error while trying to connect. The error is something like:

Error h_handle returned zero while executing "TCL_Open $target(connection)(" invoked from within "if{$::argc >= 2}{...

Is SAM-BA not going to work with Win 8?

Weird, went to win7 machine and it connected to it there, but tried the second time and got the same error, tried a few different times on the win8 machine and it connected...

Hi viktor,

What are you trying to do in your app? Is there an SD card inserted? What happens if you remove it?


No sd card. But I just re-installed the Netduino SDK 4.2 and now its taking the projects. Thanks again for chiming in.

Hi Victor,

Did you only update the TinyBooterDecompressor.bin or also the ER_FLASH file?

I was able to update the ER_FLASH and config, the board seems to have good vital signs after this until I try to load a project unto it then I get both lights on.

Here are the procedures I've done a few times:

1. Erase by doing the copper tab + 3.3v
2. use SAM-BA to clear flash (just to be sure), then load tinybootloader
3. disconnect/reconnect it, then go into mfdeploy and load the FLASH and CONFIG
4. disconnect/reconnect, ping returns TinyCLR, then go into network config and do the settings there.
5. power LED on, onboardLED off.
6. Try to start a project after I upgraded it to 4.2 and it gets built and when its trying to reboot the card I get both LEDs to come on and debug never kicks in. Also the card wont respond to a ping then.


In Topic: Netduino Firmware v4.2.0 RC4 (Netduino + Netduino Plus)

04 February 2012 - 07:11 AM

I'm getting a little confused... So there's the .net microframework sdk, firmware for netduino and netduino sdk, right? So is netduino sdk still in progress? or do you not have any plans to update it for 4.2? I'm just wondering because I see that is supported now but no project templates that I can see. Thanks for your hard work. Viktor.
