Blinky

Blinky is the much revered “Hello, World” app for Netduino.

It illustrates a basic program flow in Netduino and how to make the onboard LED blink.

Code

using System;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware;
using SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware.Netduino;
using System.Threading;

namespace Blinky
{
    public class Program
    {
        public static void Main()
        {
            // create an output port (a port that can be written to) and wire it to the onboard LED
            OutputPort led = new OutputPort(Pins.ONBOARD_LED, false);

            // run forever
            while (true)
            {
                led.Write(true); // turn on the LED
                Thread.Sleep(250); // sleep for 250ms
                led.Write(false); // turn off the LED
                Thread.Sleep(250); // sleep for 250ms
            }
        } 
    }
}
