I’m trying to use the USB Host port on my Cerbuino Bee for a GPS. All the examples I can find point to using the USBHostController class in the GHIElectronics.NETMF.USBHost namespace. I see where to find this in 4.1, but not in 4.2. Where can I find it, or a comparable class? An example of how to use it would be pretty useful as well if it’s different than the 4.1 class.
Wouldn’t it be best if the sales catalog page said up front what works and what isn’t implemented yet, to allow the purchaser ot make an informed choice? Currently the Cerbuino page does say USB Host on its diagrams and feature lists, with no clue that it’s not in place yet, or that board drivers are still in beta. If someone wanted to purchase based on the features they see on that catalog page, how would they know that USB Host isn’t implemented yet? How would they know whether Micro SD storage or access to Xbee serial line are implemented yet either, before buying?
OK, so a potential purchaser browsing your catalog should have followed a link from the catalog page labelled as “Design sources and porting info are found on this page” to learn about unimplemented features? I’m not convinced that’s enough of a clue on the catalog page that there’s even anything at all not working, on face value ‘Design sources’ sounds like it might be of interest for OSH zealots wanting to build their own - and indeed, on following the link, the table suggests not much works at all yet - not the SD card slot, not the Xbee slot (if that’s COM1), not anything involving I2C, not anything involving Seeed Studio’s modules. I appreciate it’s all coming soon, but your catalog page inviting folks to add a FEZ Cerbuino Bee to their cart doesn’t reflect that.
I should add, I myself did know it wasn’t all there yet and I’m happy to be patient, but I do think the sales catalog page ought to be transparent without requiring any forum or wiki insider knowledge.
