Antratek is selling .NET Micro Framework products

It's good to see that Antratek, a Dutch company, is now also selling a hardware platform with support for the .NET Micro Framework, the Embedded Master modules. The web site is in Dutch, translation is here. They're the first  in the Benelux!

One of the nice key features (pdf) of the platform is a FAT file system using USB memory devices such as hard drives, as well as SD/MMC cards. Near unlimited data recording and storage, anyone?

It comes complete with Ethernet with full TCP/IP stack, 2 USB ports and the obligatory features like analog in/outputs, Serial Interfaces, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) and so on. Prices start at EUR 199,96 for the Development Platform and EUR 63,96 for the Master Module.

I've bought stuff from Antratek before and it was a pleasure doing business with them.

Personal note: I am not affiliated with Antratek in any way.

Rob Miles on the Micro Framework, also coming to DevDays

Rob Miles, a typical British lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the Hull University and a Microsoft C# MVP, has a cool video about the .NET Micro Framework. He will also host a session called Embedded Development on DevDays next week. I can't wait to attend this session!

See the video: What's the Micro Framework? | Posts | Channel 8

 

And here is another nice video about the .NET Micro Framework where an application gets written (Space Invaders to be exact) and is deployed on a board based on a FreeScale i.MXS microprocessor.

I looked at the site of FreeScale and saw that they are also selling the HC11 microprocessor! I've worked with these processors in the past. I can still remember the juggling of registers, setting of flags and staring at byte opcode.

Talk about a blast from the past...
