In Topic: Gobus with Netduino 3

Hi volleynerd,

Yay! :)

That's really good feedback. The GoBus modules are pretty self-explanatory, but we should probably make up a set of demos and docs for them as well. We need to get the 8 spring/summer modules out first--but I have put this on our list.



Out of curiosity what are the new modules going to be?  :)

I've been using .NET for about 3 1/2 years now and I've never even come across the ushort type. I don't normally have to be too concious of how many bytes a variable would take up though which might play a factor in my answer (Usually work on web applications).


I would basically second what Mario suggested in that you should probably just use a float if resource is going to be an issue else just return it natively as a double.


The code could be;

// You don't have to set the variable type if you use the 'var' keyword as
// it will just be set to whatever is returned from the method. In this case a double.
var zz = System.Math.Tan(12342);


float zx = (float)System.Math.Tan(12342);

Most of the time I have managed to get away with using the following types in my code;


  • int
  • float
  • double
  • decimal
  • string
  • bool
  • object



In Topic: MVC web framework like web server experience on Netduino

I work with MVC 4/5, Web Api on a daily basis so any linking to those types of frameworks makes me excited! 


I will have to test it this week and let you know how it goes  ^_^



In Topic: Missing device listing (driver installation)

10 May 2015 - 08:52 PM

Hi Nick,

On the emulator: the emulator doesn't have any GoBus ports, so getting an exception there is normal. To use GoBus modules, make sure you're deploying to your board.

On the main issue: can you open up Device Manager really quickly and see if the Netduino appears in your USB devices? Does it have drivers installed?

I'm guessing that the driver system is confused a bit here. If you repair the Netduino SDK installation, it should automatically reinstall the drivers for you.

Once drivers are installed and you can see your Netduino in Visual Studio and MFDeploy, you should be good to go.

Does that help get you back up and running? We're happy to walk through this with you.



IT LIVES! :D The Netduino was showing under 'other' and not USB so I repaired the SDK and reinstalled the Micro Framework and I now have a very pink LED. Now I just got to think of something practical to do with the hardware haha.


Thanks again for the help. The community / support is what makes this good product into a great one :).

I'm also trying to find examples on how to use the Netduino GO! modules from N3. However my current problem is I'm unsure how to add a reference to the right assemblies as it seems to error when I add a reference to SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware.NetduinoGo.dll (V4.2.2.0).


Anyone have any ideas?


I'm currently using V4.3.2.1 and VS2K13.


Thanks in advance,
