I terribly need the answers regarding few thing.
My goal is to build a MIDI controller for my synthesizer. It should consist of SHARP IR Range finder and touchpad(synaptics or maybe Nintendo DS touchscreen), should transfer MIDI messages to MIDI OUT and have its own non-volatile memory (a little).
I’ve already found all the libraries and samples for Arduino UNO and wanted to buy one but suddenly against FEZ PANDA board. Being a .Net developer I’ve found it very suitable for myself. Unfortunately there’s a little information in the Internet regarding this board.
I’ve already found drivers(library) for SHARP IR range sensor hence my questions are:
- Has PANDA a non-volatile memory where I can store a little data?
- Does it real to connect touchpad to the digital input and read its value? Does the library exist for PS/2 devices so I could easily read data from touchpad?
- Does it real to connect MIDI out to the board and whether some library exist for sending MIDI messages?
- By the way I assume that programs for Netduino should work on PANDA, right?
Would you be so kind to answer my questions? Thank you in advance!
p.s. You know, the power of Arduino in tons of libraries for it and PANDA seems to be very young project. Is there a lot of libraries available for PANDA? I’d won’t buy one and invent bicycle from scratch if there’s just a few libs for it.
