In Topic: via USB? yu know like on the good ol Arduino.

JammerX19, Snympi:

Welcome to the Netduino community!

There are three new pieces of code required to get bi-directional comm up and running over USB.

USB/serial deployment selection:
Completed (part of the new v4.1.0.5 firmware)

USB HID C# library for PC and Netduino:

UsbClient update to Atmel .NET MF C++ code:
In development (Secret Labs + Atmel + Microsoft + community)

So we're most of the way there...but one piece to go. Once v4.1.0.5 ships next week, we'll be doubling down to coordinate the necessary fixes to enable a few different PC<->Netduino communication scenarios.



This is great. Thank you for keeping us posted on this.

Hi Yves,

We've finished the code for the device and PC side, but we have two more pieces to go:
1. Tweaks to the Atmel USB code in the .NET MF to enable PC->device HID communciation
2. Code to enable multi channel communication from device to PC (speculative)

I don't have a timeframe, but it will take quite a bit of work to pull everything together. We're working on it, but it's second priority behind the v4.1.1 updates... I know that it will be a cool feature though...


Hi Chris,

Thank you for your responsiveness and for keeping the community updated. I will keep watching this post for more information. Yes this would be a very cool and useful feature indeed!

Hi Chris,

Do you have some kind of timeframe for the availability of the communication over USB? Just an estimate, nothing carved in stone of course ;)

By the way I am new to netduino and I am really excited about this platform.

Thank you,


Hi sweddle,

We're working on some USB communication options, but for now you'll want to use one of the 2 UARTs and a USB-to-UART cable (or use your Arduino as a USB-to-UART converter as you mentioned).

By default, the .NET Micro Framework uses the USB communication channel for deployment/debugging instead...
