#42006 PWM - Netduino Plus 2 problem

Posted by Yoel on 21 December 2012 - 09:24 AM in Netduino Plus 2 (and Netduino Plus 1)

If I understand correct the period include the both part (High and low) and duty cycle is (high time)/(period time). I measure the time between rising edges to get the period.

#42002 PWM - Netduino Plus 2 problem

Posted by Yoel on 21 December 2012 - 08:27 AM in Netduino Plus 2 (and Netduino Plus 1)

Thanks for your answer. I try this way too, but if I wrote 500 Hz I expect to get period of 2000us but instead I got 1000us... The duty Cycle work correct.

#41980 PWM - Netduino Plus 2 problem

Posted by Yoel on 20 December 2012 - 10:07 PM in Netduino Plus 2 (and Netduino Plus 1)

I have netduino plus 2 with Firmware v4.2.1 (Update 2) and found two problem with pwm:

using System;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Sockets;
using System.Threading;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware;
using SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware;
using SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware.Netduino;

namespace NetduinoApplication1
    public class Program
        public static void Main()
            // write your code here
            OutputPort led = new OutputPort(Pins.ONBOARD_LED, false);

            PWM M1P = new PWM(PWMChannels.PWM_PIN_D9, 2000, 1000,PWM.ScaleFactor.Microseconds, false);

            while (true)



1. I try to get PWM with period of 2000 us and duty cycle of 50%, but get 1000us with 50% duty cycle. So, I check diffrent values and I always get half of them (period and duration).
2. I also notice when I wrote program with PWM on pin X and upload it to the microcontroller and then I upload another program that doesn't use the pin X, I still get the last PWM configuration on pin X. (With OutputPort the pins return to the default value)

I don't have scope or logic analyzer and I checked the output with another microcontroller (mbed). (I also check
with mbed PwmOut to verify that the problem is with netduino and not with my check tool). Next week I will test it with a real scope :).

am I doing something wrong?

I'm new to netduino so I hope I don't make a stupid mistake...
Sorry for my english....
