The Arduino and the Netduino are communicating over two digital IO lines. The animation is being synced over these lines. Rafel an I wanted to make the displays run. With success… but what next? Syncing both devices!
Since Rafael is developing on the Netduino platform and I am using the Arduino as platform, we had much fun putting these two devices together and let them talk to each other. This communication is used to keep the animation on both LCD displays in sync. There is a video below but it has a really bad quality. Focus your eyes on the LCD devices when watching it.
More information will follow in the next hours… ;)
I got my new toy some minutes ago. A Netduino!
Netduino is an open source electronics platform using the .NET Micro Framework. The idea is taken from the Arduino platform but the difference is, that the Netduino is being programmed in .NET and it has a much more powerful 32-bit microcontroller onboard. It is an AT91SAM7X512 with the following specs:
- Atmel 32-bit microcontroller
- Speed: 48MHz, ARM7
- Code Storage: 128 KB
- RAM: 60 KB
Hopefully I could develop with the Mono project for it but at first I will do my work in a Microsoft based environment. Sounds contradictory? Yes, it is… but I want to give it a try… ;)
I am a little bit it ill at the moment but it will be a funny weekend when playing with this nice piece of hardware.
