Netduino Projects on Hackster

26 December 2015 - 09:37 AM

Is anyone on this forum also a member of I did not see any Netduino projects published, and there was no Netduino platform / channel, so I requested to create one:



The community has a lot of great info on other platforms (Arduino, Galileo, Raspberry Pi, etc..) that we can learn from and leverage in our Netduino projects.

Updated Mini to 4.2, unable to connect or deploy projects

28 November 2015 - 07:14 AM

I was able to connect my Mini using Keyspan 19HS USB to RS232 adapter using the following configuration:

RX to ND pin1, TX to ND pin2, GND to ND pin 4, 5V to ND pin 12, and GND to ND pin 13.


Updated bootloader and flashed to 4.2 using SAM-BA 2.12.


But I am not able to connect to mini via PuTTY. It just sits at the blank screen and does not respond to Esc key.

(115200, 8 data bits, 1 stop bits, no parity, no flow control) 


Trying to deploy using VS 2015 shows this error: 

Opening port \\.\COM3
Port \\.\COM3 not found!
I've restarted the device a few times, and get same results.


MFDeploy can connect to device using Serial and shows device capabilities and device info:

I feel that I am getting close but not sure what else I am missing :-). Any ideas on how to proceed from this point?
