Seeed.CurrentSensor - GHI .NET Gadgeteer SDK 4.3 and Compatibility?

@ All

I wonder if anyone has tried the Current Sensor in 4.3? I have an error that its not compatible with the 4.3 framework?

I just bought it brand NEW from GHI.

URL: https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/324


private Gadgeteer.Modules.Seeed.CurrentSensor currentSensor

Error: “The type or namespace name ‘Seeed’ does not exist in the namespace ‘Gadgeteer.Modules’ (are you missing an assembly reference?)”

In the folder “GHI .NET Gadgeteer Modules” the sensor does not exist.

Any help would be awesome.

All the Best

@ All

Grr, msi…

I used msicuu2.exe to force an UnInstall on the “NETMF and Gadgeteer Package 2014 R1\GHI NETMF SDK Package\Installation Files/Seeed NET Gadgeteer SDK v4.2.msi”

Installed the msi fresh… It now works

All the Best

There is no Seeed 4.3 SDK, but we did port a few Seeed drivers to 4.3 and add them to our beta SDK. However, the current sensor module was not one of them. If you want to use that module, you’ll have to stick with 4.2 or port the driver yourself.

@ John Do you mind explaining or referring to any link of how to port any seeed driver to 4.3. I am using Gyro, Compass and GPS on 4.2 but I am facing a lot of communication problems with usb after the 4.3 lunched. I know GHI has Gyro and Compass but GPS is discontinued and I cant wait for the new one.

Thanks in advance

@ welmanna@ my.bridgeport.edu - There’s no formal guide, but you can compare our 4.2 and 4.3 drivers at https://bitbucket.org/ghi_elect/gadgeteer/src. The changes are mostly around updating the Gadgeteer interfaces. https://www.ghielectronics.com/docs/122/gadgeteer-driver-modification can help you use the modified driver. You can also compare the first latest 4.3 release with the last 4.2 release of Gadgeteer itself: http://gadgeteer.codeplex.com/releases.
