Third Preview of TinyCLR OS Core Features


#21

For the capacitive touch LCD’s you can simply use the I2C driver that Skewworks created for the Newhaven displays. This will work with any FT5x based touch interface.

I have tried it and it does not work as expected. I have updated Skewworks source to use TinyCLR I2C and Gpio for the Interrupt Pin. I only get TouchDown and TouchMove events. No TouchUp events are generated.

Can you try it and see what results you get?


#23

@ Gus - Great, so Microsoft.Azure.Devices.Client works with TinyCLR?

is there some documentation on how to flash the firmware on the G120 with TeraTerm?


#24

At some point it should but now TinyCLR is an early preview, not even a beta yet. It is still missing a lot of features.


#25

Do you have SoM module or on mainboard (and which model ?) ?

It can be useful : https://www.ghielectronics.com/community/forum/topic?id=24297&page=1#msg225257


#26

@ scardinale - The list is not meant to be and is nowhere near exhaustive. Touch is something we will be investigating.


#27

Is there some way we can vote on features to help certain things get bumped up the list. EG: For me, USB host is more important than other things.


#28

I may have missed it but can the old Cerb family be updated to TinyCLR OS?


#29

If the board doesn’t start with a “G” I wouldn’t expect any love going forward. Cerberus is still my favorite of all the GHI boards, though :’(


#30

@ Mr. John Smith - I don’t think so. Even EMX seems to not be able to run tinyclr, but I hope I said a mistake.


#31

Since when we do not give all our products love? Dust off your cerb boards.


#32

If I can dust off cerb and spider I, it’s not my mainboards that’ll be loved, but GHI !!!


#33

@ Gus - So I take it that’s a yes. Can I just treat them as a G80?


#34

No they are NOT a G80. But I suspect Gus will make a FUTURE announcement that helps - not that the third preview supports it


#35

Why the rush? Dust off the boards and install vs2017… And stay tuned :wink:
