A Phidgets device is a family of low-cost microcontroller-based modules with a USB interface. The Phidgets product family consists of different modules; each design serves a different purpose. Following is a list of different types of currently available Phidgets devices:
These Phidgets devices are cost efficient and popular among the academic and hobbyist developer communities.
Device Driver Project on Codeplex
There is a community project to develop a Windows Embedded Compact device drivers for the Phidgets devices on the Codeplex site, initially created to support the previous version of Windows Embedded CE 6.0.
An updated device driver component designed to support Windows Embedded Compact 7 is now available from the project site. The URL to the Phidgets device driver project on the Codeplex site is:
The exercise in the chapter is developed based on the driver component from this Codeplex project, using the following driver package:
The source code for the Phidgets driver is available from the Codeplex site, for those of you interested to delve into the code.
