These questions may sound stupid but I just got my dev board today and I want to make sure I don’t do anything wrong…
1.) On the speakers there are stickers that say “Remove after washing”. What exactly should I do (I guess I shouldn’t put the board in a washing machine…) before removing them?
2.) To connect another device via uart (not RS232) I’ll connect RX and TX to either COM2 (PC8/PC9) or COM1 (PA9/PA10). Do I assume right that the ground from the device would need to connect to GND (under the 5V and 3.3V pins marked Power)?
3.) Related to 2., what would I do if I want to connect to multiple devices at the same time? Do I connect all the grounds together to that one GND pin on the ChipWorkX module?
4.) Does the ChipWorkX also run the .NET Gadgeteer SDK or only the GHI NETMF SDK?
5.) If I would compile my own firmware using the .net porting kit, can I easily get back to the GHI firmware? The hardware they use in the porting guide would have to be sent in to GHI for re-flashing but the way I understood the ChipWorkX can be erased completely and the reflashed from scratch with the firmware provided in the SDK.
6.) Is there any guide on using JTAG with the ChipWorkX?
Sorry for all these stupid newbie questions… but I guess they are very easy for advanced users and will probably save me a few hours of searching for each of them. Thanks a lot for your help!
