Sub routines with LED flash

04 October 2016 - 01:15 AM

Here is the issue I have,  I am using a Netduino 1 to control (4) LEDs.


I need each LED to flash at a different rate.


Below is the code I have created so far.


Here is my issue.  The brth() Thread.sleep(x) seems to be controlling everything.  I need to run each of these subs independently so if I adjust brth() it won't affect tLed(), mLed(), or bLed(), or where none of the others affect each other.

The bottom line question. What did I do wrong?


Thank you in advance for your help.

Oh, forgot to mention the bad news.  I need this working in 2 days.  Yeah.  I just had this idea.  I'm an idiot.

  public class Program

    static OutputPort led1 = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D1, true);
    static OutputPort led2 = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D2, false);
    static OutputPort led3 = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D3, true);
    static OutputPort breath = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D4, false);
    //Analog Inputs
    //Analog Outputs
    public static void Main()
      // write your code here
      while (true)
    public static void tLed()
      // flash Top LED (LED1).  1.5 second cycle 50% duty.
    public static void mLed()
      // flash Middle LED (LED2).  3.7 second cycle 50% duty.
    public static void bLed()
      // flash Bottom LED (LED3).  2.35 second cycle 50% duty.
    public static void brth()
      // Trigger Breath Module.  5.1 second cycle 2% duty.

Ham Radio Repeater Controller

16 June 2016 - 12:29 AM

I am interested in making a repeater controller for my ham radio gear,


I have a Netduino 1.  The way this woks, I will have 2 radios connected to this "controller".  Radio 1 and Radio 2


When radio 1 receives a signal, the controller will key up the transmit on radio 2 and the audio from radio 1 will be sent into the "mic" of radio 2.


Then when radio 2 receives a signal, the controller will key up the transmit on radio 1 and the audio from radio 2 will be sent into the "mic" of radio 1.


There are more safeties and controls that need to be added, but that is the general premise.  Has anyone tried this before?
