#61928 SPLIT: Transitioned from Windows to Linux

Posted by Charles on 22 March 2015 - 07:49 AM

I have been away for quite a long time... And I came across my Netduino Plus yesterday and I'm thinking about getting back into it.


Since I last programmed with C#, I have transitioned from Windows to Linux and really loathe the idea of going back. What is the status on this project?

#20578 SNMP???

Posted by Charles on 14 November 2011 - 03:57 AM

Has anyone seen or heard of an SNMP class that I could use to respond to SNMP GET requests and possibly send SNMP Traps from the N+?

#7036 StepGenie (An EE's Best friend?)

I got a stepgenie for Christmas, my wife said it came quickly, and it was packed very well. Strange.

Ok... I'm still stuck on the fact that your wife got you a StepGenie for Christmas. That's awesome!!

Did she get you the full demo board or just the chip itself?

#7035 Netduino Plus home automation

Things like vacuums, electric kettles, etc.

Just curious why you would be running a kettle or vacuum cleaner through a relay in the first place. It is OK to have some unswitched outlets in your home... :)

You might want to consider these of you really need a serious relay:

Contactor Relays

Also consider using Latching Relays... They are like normal relays but don't need to stay energized to hold an on or off state... They operate more like an electronically controlled toggle switch and make the overall system more energy efficient.


And, though more expensive than regular relays, latching relays don't draw power except during the split second when you actuate them from one position to the other. That means they generate almost no heat and are far less likely to burn your house down! :)

#6621 Netduino Plus Mini

Posted by Charles on 29 December 2010 - 01:48 AM

Forgotten was harsh... Netduino is to Arduino as Netduino Mini is to Basic Stamp. For that purpose it is great. I just want the N+ to find an equal comparative. I think it would be nice to be able to say (with respect to format only of course), Netduino is to Arduino as N+ Mini is to mBED. The big deal is the Ethernet controller. Maybe it is the perfectionist in me, but I just can't bring myself to ignore the nice, optimized, on-chip ethernet capabilities, only to utilize Something like WizNet over SPI. It just seems like such a waste.

Thanks for you contribution! I will probably be using something like this eventually and I really appreciate having this example to start with! Thanks again!
