PHIDGETS DEVICES APPLICATION

In addition to supporting the native code environment, the Phidgets driver for the Compact 7 component package includes a library component to support managed code applications and uses a similar namespace structure as the .NET Compact Framework.

This chapter works through different exercises to develop the following:

  • Configure a custom OS design to support the Phidgets device, using an eBox-3310A as the target device.
  • Generate a SDK from the OS design project to support application development.
  • Develop an RFID reader application using the Phidgets RFID reader module in managed code.
  • Include the application to the OS design, and compile as part of the OS run-time image, configured to launch the application during startup.

Prerequisites

To develop an OS design for an eBox-3310A configured to support the Phidgets device and develop the RFID application for the exercises in this chapter, you need to have the following components installed in the development station:

  • Compact 7 BSP for the eBox-3310A (ICOP_eBox3310A_70A)
  • Phidgets driver for Compact 7 (PhidgetFramework_v214_Compact7)
  • AutoLaunch component for Compact 7 (AutoLaunch_v200_Compact7)
  • CoreCon component for Compact 7 (CoreCon_v200_Compact7)

In addition to the required software, you need the following hardware components:

  • An eBox-3310A
  • A PhidgetRFID reader

You can find more information about the eBox-3310A and PhidgetRFID reader from the following URLs:
