How does .NET MF deploy?


#1

How does .NET MF deploy? What I mean is, in the traditional sense .NET requires the runtime to be installed, how does this work with micro devices?

Does it deploy a runtime + app + framework assemblies to the device when you deploy?

Can you build custom .NET MF distro’s that only have the types you’re interested in?


#2

CLR and essential assemblies are already built in the firmware, only your assemblies are deployed.

You can’t change the core but you can add to it.

I am not exactly sure what you are trying to do


#3

Not trying anything just curious. My thoughts were, say I use UART, no SPI, I2C etc surely I could strip them from the firmware/framework?

Obviously with what you’ve said this means custom firmware.


#4

Yes but you will probably never need that. There is more flash then you will probably ever need


#5

That’s true, it was only a thought, remember the section in the tutorial about thinking small :wink:
