Using a 32-channel Servo Controller via a Shield Base

29 March 2014 - 03:49 PM

I bought a hexapod kit and 32 channel servo controller for the servos.


My goal is to use the netduino go with the servo controller via the shield base and send commands to the servos through the go.  Is this something that is compatible with the netduino go or is there something that would be easier to work with for my purposes?  I don't mind buying something better if it's easier to use.  


How would I go about working with something like this through the go code?  I'm guessing an OutputPort object?


Thanks very much for your help and keep up the great work on the go!

Can't flash Shield Base

17 March 2014 - 04:27 PM

I'm trying to flash the shield base, but I get an error when running the STM32ReflashApp.  At this point, I don't know if I have a dead shield base or what.  This is the line it stops:


       _socketLeds[0] = new OutputPort((Cpu.Pin)0x16, false);  


An unhandled exception of type 'System.Exception' occurred in Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.dll

Please assist.
Thank you

"Error: No response from device"

15 March 2014 - 04:25 AM

I was initially having issues getting the shield base to work.  My eventual goal is to connect the netduino Go to the shield base, which will attach to a 32 channel servo controller that I will use to control a hexapod robot.  I was trying to update the shield base firmware and the firmware of the go itself, but now I'm getting an error when trying to connect using MFDeploy.exe.  "Error: No response from device"  How can I get this back to working order?  I'd like to install the beta version of the firmware for the shield base: http://forums.netdui...irmware-beta-7/


Any assistance is appreciated.  I'm having trouble finding resources for the netduino go, as most instructions are for netduino plus or arduino, but I figure as long as I can get the shield base to work, I will be able to treat it like a netduino plus.


Thank you
