Can I use the RelayISOx16 with my Panda II


#1

I don’t see much in the way of documentation.
is the driver available for this little thing?

I can write a driver if I need to, but I need some docs…

Thanks
Keith

Hi Keith,

the Gadgeteer driver is open and freely available on the codeplex site gadgeteer.codeplex.com so you can look at it yourself.

You could connect it to a Panda if you wanted to, but doing so may not be trivial. Also, if the driver depends on any of the Gadgeteer core functions not just netmf functions, you’re going to be in trouble since the Gadgeteer core is large and not for USBizi; so you’d have to spend time looking.

@ Keith-0 : if your future application works with the relay board, it will be cool if you share hardware/software/firmware/wiring of the whole… because i encounter problems with cerberus + relay board (and i’m not the one…) http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/topic?id=10320

well I looked at the code and it’s really simple
it just clocks the data out some pins.
I think you’ll need to put a Logic analyzer on it to figure the problem out

It uses pins 3, 4,5, 7 and 9

data = new GTI.DigitalOutput(socket, Socket.Pin.Seven, false, this);
clock = new GTI.DigitalOutput(socket, Socket.Pin.Nine, false, this);
latch = new GTI.DigitalOutput(socket, Socket.Pin.Five, false, this);
enable = new GTI.DigitalOutput(socket, Socket.Pin.Three, true, this);
clear = new GTI.DigitalOutput(socket, Socket.Pin.Four, true, this);

Got it working, Keith? I want to use it with my Panda and was looking at the same gadgeteer code–looks simple.
