    Do these blocks separate the device protocol from the physical pins the electronics is connected to?

    Say you have your H-bridge motor controller that accepts certain control codes to make it do stuff. That logic needs to be separate from how you have it connected to the netduino - that should be a separate knowledge. I may multiplex the IO to the motor controller and should need only to override/re-implement that IO logic.

    PS: I am a .NET programmer by day but only have experience with the arduino ;-)

    Yes, the blocks are completely virtual. Some tie into hardware, and those are in a device-specific namespace and often implement interfaces to keep your algorithms decoupled from exact hardware.
