Windows CE 6.0 Webcam Interface

Hi All, Sorry couldn't post on earlier, been busy with some work anyways, one of the most discussed issues regarding Windows CE 6.0 has got to be the webcam interface so, lets have a look at what is what. There are two popular methods for doing this: 1: As described in Mike Hall's article on MSDN Mike Hall's article and 2: The open source webcam project from Codeplex written by Mr. Douglas Boling In my project I worked with the webcam project developed by Mr.Douglas Bloing simply because its a lot easier to implement, however the only short coming in this method is that it only worked with Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000. I did try working with another model but, I did not have any luck with it. So lets have a look at how to build a subproject to get the webcam working with windows CE 6.0. Two components are needed to build this subproject: 1: Windows Embedded CE 6.0 USB Camera Driver 2:Windows CE 6.0 Webcam Project by Mr. D.Boling This time around I thought of putting a lot of pictures in, instead of w ...

Working with Serializer .NET Library and Serializer .NET Robot Controller

Hi All, In this post I will talk about installing the Serializer .NET library and some features os the Serializer .NET Robot Controller developed by RoboticsConnection. The Serializer 3.0 Robot Controller provides a ready-to-use solution to interface the Microsoft™ .NET framework, or C++ applicaitons to the most common robotic hardware. Details about the board can be found here Serializer .NET Robot Controller Here is how we install the .NET library for use in the projects that involve using the Serializer .NET Robot Controller. Note: Although the board is called robot controller it can be used for much mmore than just controlling robots it can be used for numerous other application like, Motor control, Sensor interface, etc. The Serializer™ Library is based on the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework. It does not support the use of the .NET 1.1 Framework.

Serial Port Test

Hi all, This is the second text book example from Mr. Samuel Phung's Book.In this section we will develop a Visual Basic based application for testing the serial port on the eBox. The runtime image required for this example remains the same as developed in the previous section, so we can now move on to the application development part. Step 1:Launch the VS2005 IDE. Step 2:From the IDE, select files ► New ► Project to bring up the New Project screen. Step 3:From the New Project screen’s left pane, click on and expand the Other languages node. Step 4:Click on and expand the Visual Basic node followed by the Smart Device node, and click Windows CE 5.0. Step 5:From the New Project screen’s right pane, click Device Application. Step 6:Enter SerialPortApp as the name or any other name of your choice. Step 7:from the New Project screen, click OK to continue. A blank SerialPortApp will be created by the VS2005 IDE.

Hello World

Hi All, I hope everyone is familier now with the basic OS development. So, lets start writing applications. This is the first blog in this section so I will take simple application from the book. "Hello World" is the simplest application to get started with application development in windows CE. Step 1:From VS2005 IDE select File/New/Project, to bring up the project screen. Expand Other Languages tab then select and expand Visual C# expand Smart Device and select Windows CE 5.0 on the right hand side select Device Application, choose an appropriate name for the application and click OK. Step 2:Once the new application window is up you can modify the different parameters as per your choice. Resize the Form to a smaller size (320x240) to make it easy to see the application when it runs on CE 6.0. Change the Form caption to “CE 6.0 JumpStart Kit – C# Example” Add a text-box to the form, change the name to textHelloWorld, clear the content in the text-box and place the text-box to the center of the form. ...

Windows CE 6.0 SDK development

Hello all, This is the last blog in the OS design section, after this I will be moving on to application development. So, here we go with the SDK development. In order to write applications using Visual Studio 2005 and establish a connection to download applications to the eBox-4300 for testing and debug, a CE 6.0 SDK for the OS Design we created in the previous steps is needed. Create and Configure Windows Embedded CE 6.0 SDKFrom VS2005 IDE, select Project | Add New SDK… to bring up the SDK Property Pages screen as shown below.

Downloading OS onto the eBox

Hi All, Today I'll be writing about downloading the OS design onto the eBox. After the runtime image is generated from the OS design, the development station needs to establish connectivity with the target device to download the image to the device. The three common methods of connectivity are (1) Ethernet (2) USB (3) Serial. For our example we will the Ethernet as our connectivity option. This method uses static IP to establish connection with the eBox. Step 1: Configuring the static IP for the eBox-4300All eBoxes are preconfigured to boot to DOS and launches a selection menu with four options, when powered up. The third option, loads the OS image from the development station with static IP In case your device has more than three options select the one that says: Load OS image from development station with static IP The static IP on the eBox can be changed to a different IP address. For doing this, use a text editor to edit the autoexe.bat, located in the eBox 4300’s flash s ...

OS Customization

Hello All, Last time we left at configuring the OS design wizard. This time we will look at further customizing the OS design, so here we go. After we have finished acknowledging the NDIS User mode I/O Protocol Driver warning the VS 2005 IDE will open. Now we can start with further customizing the OS design. Step 1:on the left hand side of the IDE window you can see the catalog item tab expand the CoreOS and you should be able to see the number of different components. What do these different components do? Expand the Third Party | BSP | ICOP_eBox4300_60CS: x86 followed by the Drivers tab. You can see here some components are already selected. VIA CN/CX Display Driver VIA HD Audio Driver VIA UAM3059 Audio Driver (Unified) You can easily guess what these drivers are for, audio, video, etc. just in case if they are not selected don't forget to select them. Also make sure that you select the ConMan_x86 Files Component This component adds the CoreCon files to the final image, needed to establish connectionb ...

Windows CE 6.0 OS design wizard

Hello all, My apologies for not posting yesterday, had some issue with my system. In this article I will be talking about the basic OS design. Step 1: Launch a new instance of VS 2005. If the installation is done correctly the IDE should look like this, Step 2: From the IDE select the new project option. Now usually Platform Builder for CE 6.0 is selected by default. In case it is not selected by default, select Platform Builder for CE 6.0. Choose an appropriate name for your project and click OK. Make sure the create directory for solution is clicked. By default your OS design will get stored in the following path “C:\WINCE600\OSDesigns”, is a good practice to leave it in its default setting however if you wish to change it you can. Step 4:After you click OK a new window pops up, this is the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 OS Design Wizard. Click Next. Step 4: At this stage we are required to select the required Board Support Package to create a runtime image for your device. Here we can see that ICOP_eBox4300 ...

Windows CE 6.0 Installation

Hello everyone, Last week I talked about what I have planned for the coming weeks, so here it is. Before we start working with Windows CE let us have a look at what is required for the development. Two categories that we we need to see here are; 1: Hardware:- For this there is really nothing much to discuss since it’s a choice that you will make when you start working with your projects, but for our discussion I will be using ICOP eBox 2300/4300. 2: Software:- Here we will need two tools: Visual Studio 2005 and the Platform builder for CE 6.0 plugin. So, where do we get these from? You can either buy the CD’s from Microsoft or download the tools from their website. I got the CD’s when I took part in SPARK challenge. Visual Stusio 2005:- Microsoft Visual Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft. It can be used to develop console and graphical user interface applications along with Windows Forms applications, web sites, web applications, and web services in both native code and man ...
