Has anyone here tried connecting the fingerprint reader from Aratek to a Domino? or to any other NETMF device?
I’m having some major troubles.
Firstly i made it work, it scanned my fingerprint, it enrolled me in its own database and could basically authenticate me. But then it just stopped… every time i send the scan command it does nothing and after a couple of sends it raises a serial port error.
I thought… well… it’s my code… it’s faulty somehow.
And i redone just the scanning part of the code… now every time i send the scan command GC comes in and erases everything… the command itself isn’t even issued correctly because the GC comes and closes the serial connection(or so i think).
I’m having trouble figuring out if it’s the problem from the Aratek device or from the Domino or from my code.
If anyone else had this problem, not necessarily with the Aratek device but with any other serial device it would be very helpful at least i would know in what direction to go.
Any suggestions are highly appreciated!!!
- the Domino has the latest firmware
- i have the latest .NETMF
- i’m using Visual Studio 2010 Professional Edition
- Serial out communication seems to work just fine with a serial LCD
- cables are all working just fine, tested them with a multimeter.
