Windows 10 Iot of Raspberry Pi 2 First look

Windows 10 IoT version is the latest lightweight flavor directed at small embedded devices. Previewed at Build 2015 and prereleased as “Windows Core Insider Preview”. it will be interesting to see just how this product will be received. This initial released is directed at the “Maker” community which is quite a change for Microsoft as this segment is not perceived as a large profit center unlike its traditional targets. While the Raspberry Pi is a very popular platform in the Maker community it is still mostly used for small “one of” type projects. It is popular in academic circles and used by many institutions as an introduction platform for beginner programmers. Unfortunately the hardware is very “closed source”, there are no schematics or PCB layout information available and virtually no information on the SoC chip used. True it is a powerful quad core 900Mhz ARM Cortex-A7 processor from Broadcom but if you look on their web site you won’t find any mention of the part nor any information on the part what ...

About Windows 10 IoT

Windows 10 IoT is the third (lower) layer of Windows 10. All three are built from the same codebase, part of Microsoft’s one Windows mantra. Whilst the desktop will have significantly more features than the IOT layer, the IoT layer will embedded features such as General Purpose IO (GPIO) which the desktop doesn’t. The Phone layer will support cellular networks for phone calls whereas the other two only support this for internet access. Apart from the common code, a binding feature of all three is Universal Apps.

.Net Micro Framework and regular expressions … “out of range exception” !

Developing a new library for accessing to the Microsoft Azure Service Bus (event hubs, queues, topics / subscriptions) based on AMQP (and AMQP .Net Lite library) I came across a bug in the code of the regular expression in the .Net Micro Framework.

 

The bug occurred by chance, when I had a "connection string" in which there was the "SharedAccessSignature" field that has a value when we use the AMQP connection with CBS (Claim Based Security); for example when we publish to a "publisher" endpoint in the event hubs with a SAS-based security token.
