@ Iggmoe - that’s post modern Briton for you…

This looks fascinating, will definietly give that a look! many thanks!

Yes I agree, I would have liked a bigger budget and freedom to choose my own hardware, but ah well, I guess industry will be much the same :slight_smile:

You are welcome!

@ Justin - The tool is perfect for PID tuning :wink:

@ Architect - i think you have stumbled on a cunning plan…so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a weasel :smiley:

Hey guys! I m so nearly there! I have implemented an FFT program and adapted it to my needs, all that remains is to feed my analogue input into the program!
But, the digital input is 32 Bit signed integer, whilst the program only accepts a double precision floating point number (the operation double needs to be applied to it)

What is the easiest way to convert the variable scope as listed in this line? “AnalogInput scope = new AnalogInput((Cpu.AnalogChannel)Cpu.AnalogChannel.ANALOG_0, 15);”

private void DoChart()
AnalogInput scope = new AnalogInput((Cpu.AnalogChannel)Cpu.AnalogChannel.ANALOG_0, 15);
{double Fs = 11025; // 11kHz Sampling frequency
double TimeStep = 1000.0 / Fs; // time step in mS
double HzPerBin = Fs / N;
double Delta_F = Fs / N; // 11025/8192 = 1.34 Hz/bin
double f1 = scope; // Sinusoid frequencies
double f2 = 0; // Sinusoid frequencies
double f3 = 0; // Sinusoid frequencies
double Theta1 = 2 * Pi * f1 / Fs; // Normalized frequency 1
double Theta2 = 2 * Pi * f2 / Fs; // Normalized frequency 2
double Theta3 = 2 * Pi * f3 / Fs; // Normalized frequency 3
double A1 = 1;
double A2 = 0.5;
double A3 = 0.1;
double p1 = 0;
double p2 = 0.2 * Pi;
double p3 = 0.7 * Pi;
double Noise;
double NoiseLevel = 0.1;

Convert to what?

a “double precision floating point number” according to visual studio. Having perused the msdn website, im fairly certain that is the correct term, i could however be horribly mistaken!

You need to read from the scope. You variable scope is an object. It has methods. You need to call one of its Read methods.

Im trying to achieve that, its not going well im afraid

I found this on msdn, but it doesnt seem to work for me, the same error message persists saying

"Error 1 Cannot implicitly convert type ‘Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.AnalogInput’ to ‘double’ "

public void ConvertDoubleInt(double doubleVal) {

		int     intVal = 0;
		// Double to int conversion can overflow. 
		try {
			intVal = System.Convert.ToInt32(doubleVal);
			System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as an int is: {1}",
				doubleVal, intVal);
		} 
		catch (System.OverflowException) {
			System.Console.WriteLine(
				"Overflow in double-to-int conversion.");
		}

		// Int to double conversion cannot overflow.
		doubleVal = System.Convert.ToDouble(intVal);
		System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a double is: {1}",
			intVal, doubleVal);
	}

Use cast.
for example:


double d = 4.9;
int i = (int)d;

Based on this error it looks like you are trying to treat an instance of an AnalogInput class as a double.

I think I see the problem from your earlier post


private void DoChart()
AnalogInput scope = new AnalogInput((Cpu.AnalogChannel)Cpu.AnalogChannel.ANALOG_0, 15); <------ Scope is an AnalogInput
{double Fs = 11025; // 11kHz Sampling frequency
double TimeStep = 1000.0 / Fs; // time step in mS
double HzPerBin = Fs / N;
double Delta_F = Fs / N; // 11025/8192 = 1.34 Hz/bin
double f1 = scope; // Sinusoid frequencies  <----------------------- Here you assign scope, the AnalogInput to a double, you need call Read
double f2 = 0; // Sinusoid frequencies
double f3 = 0; // Sinusoid frequencies
double Theta1 = 2 * Pi * f1 / Fs; // Normalized frequency 1
double Theta2 = 2 * Pi * f2 / Fs; // Normalized frequency 2
double Theta3 = 2 * Pi * f3 / Fs; // Normalized frequency 3
double A1 = 1;
double A2 = 0.5;
double A3 = 0.1;
double p1 = 0;
double p2 = 0.2 * Pi;
double p3 = 0.7 * Pi;
double Noise;
double NoiseLevel = 0.1;

it says “A field initializer cannot reference the non-static field, method, or property”

is this the method applied to convert 32 bit signed integer to floating point(double precision)?

As I mentioned above you need to use one of the Read methods:

scope.Read()

Edit1: Can you please use code tags

Edit2: Quick tutorial on how to use AnalogInput:

http://wiki.tinyclr.com/index.php?title=Analog_Inputs

Hey guys, when trying to read from the analog input, I get this message, even with very simple code

An unhandled exception of type ‘System.ArgumentException’ occurred in Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.dll

What am i doing wrong? I’ve referenced everything i think

using System;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using System.Threading;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware;
using GHI.Premium.Hardware;

namespace MFConsoleApplication1
{
    public class Program
    {
        public static void Main()
        {
            AnalogInput lightSensor = new AnalogInput((Cpu.AnalogChannel)Cpu.AnalogChannel.ANALOG_1,
                                                        10);
            double lightSensorReading = 0;

            while (true)
            {
                lightSensorReading = lightSensor.Read();
                Debug.Print(lightSensorReading.ToString());
                Thread.Sleep(500);
            }
        }
    }
}

Using code tags will make your post more readable. This can be done in two ways:[ol]
Click the “101010” icon and paste your code between the

 tags or...
Select the code within your post and click the "101010" icon.[/ol]

Ah i see! ive edited the post

@ ks09aao - What line gives you the exception?

The error is gone now that i changed the analogin command, Im not sure why though!

Now when i debug my program it says “the debugging target is not an initialized state, rebooting”, why is this? the print commands do not come out in the debug window either, the debugging closes briefly after starting

using System;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using System.Threading;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware;
using GHI.Premium.Hardware;
using GHI.OSHW.Hardware;



namespace MFConsoleApplication1
{
    public class Program
    {
        public static void Main()
        {
            AnalogInput lightSensor = new AnalogInput(FEZCerbuino.Pin.AnalogIn.A1);

            double lightSensorReading = 0;
            while (true)
            {
                lightSensorReading = lightSensor.Read();
                Debug.Print(lightSensorReading.ToString());
                Thread.Sleep(500);
            }
        }
                
            
            void programStarted()
            {
                Debug.Print("Program Started");
            }
        }

    }


Oh i see, so the fact that I get no output is more program related, I need to change how I manipulate the output

Is there some kind of loop I can use that would sample the amplitude every second and print it to the debug window?

Ahhh sorry daft question, yes your quite right!
This is the output from the debug window, the lines “ERROR!!! Firmware version does not match managed code version!!!” and “Cannot find any entrypoint!” are cuase for concern?
