Blinkin' LED code not working

18 January 2013 - 04:05 PM

I updated my Netduino Plus 2 to the latest 4.2.2 firmware and tried the following code to flash the LED:



public static void Main() 		{ 			  OutputPort led = new OutputPort(Pins.ONBOARD_LED, false); 		  			  while (true) 			  { 				    led.Write(true); 				    Thread.Sleep(250); 				    led.Write(false); 				    Thread.Sleep(250); 			  } 		}


When I start debugging the blue LED at the top right comes on for a few seconds, so I'm sure it's working, but will not flash as I expected. Stranger still, if I press the button on the board the LED does light up, and Windows makes a "USB device attached" sound. Seems like a simple enough test, any idea what I'm doing wrong?




Netduino Plus 2 and NETMF 4.3?

17 January 2013 - 09:49 PM



I recently got a Netduino Plus 2 and I'd like to develop for it with VS 2012 and NETMF 4.3.  I installed the NETMF 4.3 SDK and latest Netduino SDK, created a new project and referenced the SecretLabs dlls as required.  I can build the source, but when I try to deploy to the Netduino I get an error that says the device has version 4.2 of an assembly while I'm trying to use 4.3.  Is it possible to develop for the Netduino Plus 2 using these software versions, or do I need to downgrade to 4.2?  Any advice on getting up and running with VS 2012 would be appreciated.  I tried to install VS 2010 after installing VS 2012 and ran into some issues, I'd rather not have to use 2010.




Where is the gold erase pad on the Netduino Plus?

02 July 2012 - 03:02 AM

I can easily see the gold erase pad on the original Netduino - it's a square contact adjacent to Digital I/O Pin 0. However, on the Netduino Plus that same area has a smaller pad that looks silver and almost appears to have a dab of solder (not from me) on it. I probably have one of the earlier runs on the N+ if that makes any difference. Thanks!

Any issues developing on Windows 8 / Visual Studio 11?

31 March 2012 - 07:11 PM

I was considering upgrading my main machine to Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Has anyone taken the plunge and tried working with the Netduino? I'm also curious if we can use the Visual Studio 11 beta with Netduino.
