Embedded development with .NET and C#


.netcpu has announced a tiny embedded system that uses allows the user to write .NET code. Here’s an Eweek article.

I like C# and all, but at the current price point, I don’t think it’s very interesting. $500 for the development kit, $199 for the module. If you need the 32-bit performance (it uses an ARM chip), then it might be more interesting.

I should also note that the Javelin stamp (which runs a Java subset) is about $80 in quantity.

None of these are cheap enough for my next holiday lighting project.

  1. Cool stuff. I was actually looking at modding the Tini boards that run java to run .Net on. However, my stint into embedded development didn’t run long because 1) The tini boards don’t hold the required amount of main memory and storage 2) I found modules to switch the main memory with but have no knowledge of "correct soldering."

    I’ll definately get the .netcpu once I can scrounge out some money. Maybe I’ll setup a website dedicated to embedded dev with .net and c#. 🙂

  2. I used the TINI400 (DSTINI400 – 1MB) quite a bit and was very satisfied with it – wrote a complete home automation system for it. The board is $67 from Maxim (https://shop.maxim-ic.com/cgi-bin/Maxim.storefront/1152942181/Product/View/DSTINIM400).

    For better performance, support and features, you may want to explore the Systronix boards at http://www.systronix.com.

  3. I looked at the Systronix board but they are all java. Who wants to use java 😀 (thats a rhetorical question..please don’t spam me. 🙂

  4. To bump up an order with an electronics distributor over their minumum order quantity I ended up buying a PIC development kit. They have a nice demo board that comes with it (Part No. DV164006) which has both an LCD & Serial ports on board so you also get a chance to actually dump out diagnostics.

    I rather like the new 18F series parts, kinda reminds me of a 6502 based system (pointers in zero page). In previous lives I’ve ignored PIC parts as they didn’t come down in price when quanitities went up, but for home use they seem fairly competitive (and also have lots of parts available in DIP packages still).

  5. Sushant, some of us are multi-lingual 🙂

    I agree with Eric, the price is a little too steep. Instead of the .netcpu, I would rather use a Pocket PC simply because it gives me more features for the same price and there is a stable robust suitable well-supported environment (Compact Framework) publicly available for it.
