Relative newcomer to Gadgeteer modules.
I’d like to set up my next .NET Gadgeteer project to be connected to a PC as a virtual serial port for data communication. I know I can do this using the USB-Serial module. But I’d like to also power the project from that same USB port, and that led me to looking at the USB-Serial SP module. If that’s how the mainboard gets its power, but it looks to the PC like a virtual serial port, I’m confused about how I would download/debug during the development phase…through this module?
Would I need to use a USB Client SP module (for download/debug) and a separate USB-Serial module during development, and then go into Visual Studio and switch the .gadgeteer diagram to use the USB-Serial SP module (removing the USB-Serial and USB Client SP modules)? But once I make that change, can I download the new version to the mainboard through the USB-Serial SP module? Or do I need the USB-Client module attached to do this? But I can’t attach more than one power (red) module at a time…
It seems like a catch-22, but I suspect I’m missing something or I’m overthinking it.
