#38950 Netduino Go Firmware v4.2.1

Posted by Gutworks on 10 November 2012 - 09:52 PM

Are you sure?,

Positive :)

I believe Chris may have mentioned it already in a previous post, but I suspect the SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware.NetduinoGo and SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware both have dependencies on GoBus.dll, and if you remove one, you have to remove the other.

The reason for the removal of the Gobus.dll can be found here in this post.

As for the references, yes I really don't need to reference the scope of the Cpu.PWMChannel. It doesn't hurt, but technically in this instance I don't need to add any scope since there is no ambiguity between the Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.PWM and the SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware.PWM, since I have removed the SL libraries. :)

#38619 Something new is brewing in the Secret Labs

I think we are in for a treat! My bet is on a total body transformation and clothes replicator module. But that's just a daft hunch... Steve

LOL. Not quite what I had in mind.

Chris has left several cookie crumbs in the recent onslaught of comments since recently receiving his Boy Scout Emergency Preparedness merit badge.

There are several thing Chris has mentioned that are coming down the pipe line. Perhaps some may be a part of this announcement.

I think it's a nice wish list. Though I still expect to be WOWed with even more. Traditionally a banner change means something new and covert. This is Secret Labs we're dealing with after all. :)

I'll post some more theories later today...

I was hoping for something like: RXRoZXJuZXQ=


Oooh, that would be nice. Though I suspect it's something even bigger. :)

If you haven't had the pleasure yet, check out the updated Netduino homepage. In classic Secret Labs style Chris has posted an obfuscated and redacted message, which generally means something new and existing is about to be announced. So what's your guess? What do you think the encoded message is telling us?


#37855 Help with a Servo code

Posted by Gutworks on 23 October 2012 - 02:54 PM

Hi ulterior,

I remember when I first started out and had no idea where to actually start. I think a great place to get the basics down would be to buy the book "Getting Started with Netduino" by Chris Walker. I found it incredibly helpful and went over all the general topics such as servos and motor control in Chapter 7. The book is also available as an eBook which I find very useful and often have it open when needing a quick reference.

In addition to the book, I have also often used the tutorials found on the Netduino Wiki. Community member ItsDan converted some awesome Arduino tutorials over to the Netduino platform and I have found myself referencing those many times. Many of the parts there can be purchase as kits from Sparkfun, or you can buy the components as needed from somewhere like your local electronics store, or eBay.

Here is the servo tutorial that also explains what is happening. Once you finish that one I would suggest you post some of your questions here and we'll try to answer and explain them as best as possible. Also don't forget to check the datasheets on the servo you have. Each servo may be configured differently and to have it operating smoothly you may need to alter your code slightly.

In any case, feel free to ask away here or in the chat room. Good luck and have fun!

Ahhh...I only just clued in LOL.

#37136 Netduino Plus Pinout Reference

Posted by Gutworks on 13 October 2012 - 08:41 PM

I absolutely love the versatility of my Netduino Plus and have a few of them. As often as I use them I still forget which pins do what, and especially how much current each pin can source. So I thought I would share this updated pinout reference in hopes that you may find it useful. I would like to thank community member Tecchie who created the original Netduino pinouts.

The image is intentionally large, however it makes it difficult to move around using the forum's lightbox. To open the pinout zoomed out, click here: Netduino Plus Pinout

If you notice any errors or would like to have anything added or changed, please let me know.

Edit: New pinout diagram Ver. 1.1

#37009 Flashing Go Modules using ST Microelectronics’ Flash Loader Demonstrator

Posted by Gutworks on 11 October 2012 - 03:00 AM

Hi Fabien,

I have used this method several times now and have loved it. I originally saw it posted in a previous Touch Display thread a while back, but had only recently tried it out with your help. I have also started to use the Komodex go!bus Breakout Module instead of my IDC breakout from Proto-advantage. Both work great, but with the Komodex go!bus Breakout Module I have the additional option of flashing with an ST-Link as well. So in case there are some people that don't have the Proto-Advantage IDC breakout, but they do have the breakout module, here's another option.

As you can see I have both options on one breadboard for demonstration purposes, but prefer the Komodex option. I believe they should be getting more in stock pretty soon.

One word of caution with my setup is the USB-UART dongle I am using is really cheap ($2.00), and I find that it does not source enough amps and is running at about 3.25V. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't, but now I am using an external 3.3V power source and it works brilliantly. I guess you get what you pay for.

Anyway, thank you Fabien for showing us another option to flash modules.


#36814 All Nwazet assemblies in one archive

Posted by Gutworks on 08 October 2012 - 11:44 PM

Hi Fabien,

A while back I posted an NSIS Installer for Netduino Go Module Drivers template. This is what I use for my module driver assembly installer, and it handles adding all the necessary values to the registry, generating an uninstaller, etc.

It should be pretty easy to customize the script to your needs. Also, if you want to see the actual script used in my drivers installer, that's included in the source code and examples package on

Let me know if you have any questions! :)


Matt, this is a great solution. I love how I can download your latest drivers and have them automatically update everything. I wish the drivers for the Shield Base and Nwazet drivers used this process. I find it rather confusing at time looking for the assemblies in the Recent tab when they show several of the same names.

Fabien, if you'd like I'll give it a shot and see if I can create a similar installer for your drivers.


#36338 Netduino Go Firmware v4.2.0 (Update 1)

Posted by Gutworks on 01 October 2012 - 02:16 AM

I will add the Checklist to Wiki. Checklist PDF Wiki Page

Chuck, brilliant job. I find this extremely helpful. In fact we're using it in chat as we speak!


#35742 Early "Getting Started with Netduino Go" software and instructions

Posted by Gutworks on 22 September 2012 - 12:56 AM

We are sending your update via USPS, should be there by the end of the year (2013) :lol: :P

Sometimes called snail mail for a good reason. :angry:

You're a funny man Chuck. Nothing like pouring salt on my wounds. :P

I do truly believe that USPS and Canada Post have conspired against me and anything I order from the US. However soon I will have the best of both worlds, my DAQ arriving and my shield base updated. I wonder which will be first ;)


#34508 Wow. Three free LOGIC16s courtesy of Saleae...

Posted by Gutworks on 31 August 2012 - 08:26 PM

I would also like to thank Saleae for providing the community with a bunch of extra Logic8s for sale :) A truly incredible tool that has opened up the mysteries of microelectronics to me. Thanks Saleae, Chris, and Arron!! :D Cheers, Steve

#33510 Netduino firmware v4.2.0 source found on the downloads page

Posted by Gutworks on 13 August 2012 - 12:37 PM

I just noticed on the Netduino downloads page that the full source for the firmware v4.2.0.0 is there. Could this be the start of an exciting announcement on .NET MF 4.2 RTM(QFE2) SDK?! When will we see some updates on and the final releases on the Netduino firmware? Also is there a list of updates available? So many questions, so many possibilities!!
