I am looking for OneWire X1 module, but I can see, this gadgeteer is discontinued. Could you tell me why? How can I manage future projects that includes oneWire devices without X1 interface?
Can I use oneWire X1 module in NETMF 4.3 somehow?
My other question regarding onewire is the following. I have installed the latest GHI 4.3 Package and started a new project. Added all the required references OneWire Class (Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware) | Microsoft Learn
but I can not access OneWire… The MSDN api says there is but I can not find it.
Looking forward your reply. Thank you!
- You can contact GHI and ask if there are any OneWire X1 modules left.
- You can ask GHI to manufacture those models for you (I believe your order will need to be at least 100 units).
- You can manufacture that module yourself (schematics are available) - that module is not very hard.
Of course there are some other options, but I guess those are the main ones.
To get OneWire X1 module working within 4.3, you need to install Legacy driver pack:
Just use the breakout like Andre suggested. The software will work the same.
Thank you for your helpful reply!
Regarding the breakout I only have to attach 4.7k resistor and the result is X1 interface?
Thank you guys!
kind of. Attaching the pull-up resistor will certainly mean it behaves like the one-wire module does. You just need to use the pull-up resistor between the onewire data pin and the 3v3 line, and connect the other two pins of the onewire chip to 3v3 and GND. You can see the schematic http://www.ghielectronics.com/downloads/schematic/OneWire_X1_Module_SCH.PDF
Thank you for your detailed answer. Now even if the X1 is discontinued good to know there is a workaround.
All the best, and thanks all of you.
