The G80 System on Chip (SoC) is a low-cost chipset running .NET Micro Framework. It is programmed using Microsoft's Visual Studio in C# or Visual Basic which lets developers enjoy a world class development environment with modern event-driven programming languages.
Pricing, purchasing and other information can be found on the G80 Page on our main website.
Options for programming the G80 include the following:
Microsoft's .NET Micro Framework (NETMF)
We discourage the use of NETMF software on our products in favor of TinyCLR OS. For more information on NETMF you can go to the NETMF Introduction page. The NETMF Getting Started page covers NETMF from setup of the host computer to program deployment on both an emulator and target device.
TinyCLR provides a way to program the G80 in C# or Visual Basic using Microsoft Visual Studio. To get started you must first install the firmware on the G80 (instructions below) and then go to the TinyCLR Getting Started page for instructions on setting up the host computer and writing and deploying programs.
Loading Bootloader v2
The G80 SoC ships with the Bootloader loaded and locked. No further steps are necessary.
Loading the Firmware
To activate bootloader v2, the LDR0 input needs to be low while resetting the device.
