So I’ve successfully created an Interrupt Input on Pin 3 to common using just about any Socket on the FEZ Spider. I’ve also successfully created a Digital Input using Pin 4 and the 3.3V pin on Socket 11 or 14. So I know that the code is working.
When I attempt to use other pins and sockets for the digital input I get exceptions. I’m assuming it is because of the socket types. https://www.ghielectronics.com/docs/120/gadgeteer-sockets.
I want to maximize the number of Digital Inputs and thought that hooking up the breakout module to any Y socket would achieve this. However, it seems that the breakout module is not using the Y socket type. I also have a relay board (socket 9), wifi (socket 6) and power module (socket 1) hooked up to the spider. I noticed in the vs .net designer that my relay board is using the Y socket type and will not allow me to set the Y socket type for the breakout module. So I have the following questions:
I prefer to use an interrupt input but it appears that this is only available for Pin 3 on most sockets. Is this true, which means for each interrupt input I will need another breakout module to use pin 3 on the sockets?
I’m assuming a work around for the above is to use a digital inputs instead. So considering the other gadgets that I’m using with the FEZ Spider, is it possible to use another Y socket in addition to the relay board Y socket? If so, how? If not, how do I know what socket type the designer is setting up for the breakout module? Again I want to maximize the number of digital inputs. I also have another breakout module in hand.
Thanks in advance.
