Where's the source repository?

30 August 2010 - 08:47 PM

Where is the source repository for the netduino firmware/tools etc? Is it out there somewhere and I'm just missing it? I know that source downloads for the official releases are made available on the website, but most open source projects I've worked with make their repository publicly read-able and browse-able for looking at history etc.

XBee Troubleshooting Ideas?

26 August 2010 - 02:26 PM

I just got the sparkfun xbee wireless kit and got it all soldered up and plugged in. I plugged in the xbee explorer to the PC, installed the x-ctu software from digi. I initialize the serial port in my application to 9600 speed, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit , open the port, and wire up the DataReceived event. After that I put it into a loop where it just writes and flushes "Hello world" every 5 seconds. If i open the x-ctu terminal on my PC and type, it I can see the lights blinking on the xbee's, and the DataReceived event fires on the netduino, and a call to read returns my bytes. The problem i'm having is that "Hello world" isn't coming out on the PC end of things. I've tried flushing etc, but nothing. Could I possibly have a loose solder joint on the tx pin for the xbee shield? What's the best way to go about troubleshooting?

SD Card Shield

23 August 2010 - 03:17 AM

I got my Netduino last week and have been playing around with it while reading through "Expert .Net Micro Framework". I'm an experienced .Net developer but very new to MF and embedded systems in general.

I got the SD Card Shield from MakerShed and I'm just trying to do some simple file IO.

When I try to enumerate volumes and file systems from Microsoft.SPOT.IO it doesn't find anything. I'm assuming this is because Netduino is missing a driver. I started looking at the Arduino Fat code to see about porting it, but I'm really not sure where to start. Honestly I'm not even sure how this shield works, the documentation for it leaves quite a bit to be desired. "You can select 3.3V or IO port power supply with the switch on board in order to work with different library."

Can anyone point me in the direction of some good resources? Am I just making this too hard (hopefully)?
