Windows Compatible Hardware Development Boards Launch Event (Morning Session)

1 hour, 24 minutes, 9 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

An event for the Sharks Cove hardware development board from Intel. We will demonstrate how it can be leveraged by developers for driver development and see how our Partners have successfully used this platform to further their business.

  • What's the Microsoft hardware story for someone trying to utilise GPIO and developing in C#?

    For example, I'd like to write a system to control a pumping station, I'd like to host a REST service on the device itself using Katana/OWIN and control valve states via GPIO. I'd like to use managed Azure libraries to talk to the cloud. I'd like to run Windows, the full .NET Framework and code it all using C#.

    At present, my option is Raspberry Pi and Mono with RaspberryPi.Net library. Do these boards change any of that? The missing component appears to be a managed libraries for the IO capabilities on the boards.



  • I'm with you and want this option, but doesn't appear to be available now.  While they don't give specifics, you can clearly hear in this .NET Rocks session (link below) that managed code is coming to these platforms...



  • Luke u read my mind. On a similar project. Channel9 your file size is scary

  • Duncan MackenzieDuncanma "yeah that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by"

    @ojorma: For readable code, we like to go pretty high quality. If you know of a different site with downloadable files that are smaller but good for code at the same resolution (and still include video of people) I'd love to know so I can checkout their encoding settings. 

    There are 3 different MP4s though, all different sizes

    where is the afternoon session ????

  • @LukePuplett: Unfortunately with Windows 8.1 we don't have a story for accessing the pins on the boards directly from any app (native or managed).  The IOT team is looking to bring the Wiring libraries over to Windows in the future but I don't have any timeline I can give you for that.

    @felix9. The afternoon session contains the same material as the morning session. We did two live sessions to cater to various time zones. Only one video is being posted in order to consolidate all questions and comments. Is there specific information you were hoping to get?

  • @PeterWieland: .......................do you have a UserVoice? ;)

    Any plans to support Beagle Bone Black?

  • David98xpDavid98xp

    2 Questions:
    1. What software can you provide to access the GPIO, SPI, I2C pins and code?
    2. Can it run XP? I have a copy and though it would just be cool to install.

  • @shaggygi:Unfortunately Windows isn't supported on the Sitara SoC, so no plans

  • @David98xp:See my answer to Luke above about having user-mode access to the GPIO, SPI and I2C pins.

    As to XP support: XP doesn't support UEFI and this board doesn't have the PC/AT BIOS compatibility support.  I'm sure that's just one of many hurdles in getting Windows XP booting on the MBM.  Sorry.
