In Topic: NoobShield on Shield Base

30 April 2012 - 04:03 PM

Is anyone else getting intermittent reliability with the PWM feature on the Shield Base (beta)? Using it as a shield base -- or deploying code straight to the board?

Hi Chris,

Just got my N-Go with its shield base (beta), and I am having pretty much the same trouble with it as Gutworks. Using either the code you or he had provided, the program seems to work perfectly fine (the loop is looping) but the led is not turning off even though !ledPort.Read() changes value at each turn.

I am using the of the Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.PWM. I installed everything in the right order.

Please let me know if you have any idea about this problem.


In Topic: Cerberus Vs. Netduino Go

Thank you very much Chris, I appreciate your reactivity.

I couldn't find the board you referred in your post, was it this one : Link

The reason why I focused on the Go and the cerberus is their processor/memory. We want our processor to be able to handle a music stream from a Wifi interface and stream it to a Bluetooth one while keeping its cost as low as possible.

Also, since we are not experts in building PCB we wanted to take advantage of cheap open sourced hardware to design simply our own PCB based on the Netduino Go design and the components that we're planning to add to it.

I thought even though there are no Wifi Modules available for the Go, one could just use GPIOs to connect it to some module and take advantage of the TCP/IP stack of the /NETFM. Is that possible or am I just saying some nonsense ?

So to sum up, we want to design a PCB based on open source extendable boards (extendable = WiFi + Bluetooth + SD card). We want to use the cheapest modules possible (ex. Wifi modules are often Uber expensive => use NETFM TCP/IP to make it cheaper to produce) and we want it to be fast enough to support audio streaming.

Do you guys think the Netduino platform could help us do that?
(We don't care paying a lot for the prototyping platform, we care more about the final production costs of our fully functional PCB)

Thank you again for your assistance, I already ordered a bunch of Netduino GO, can't wait to start playing.

Best, - Ismail
