Microsoft Visual Studio Integration:
The .NET Micro Framework SDK integrates into the Visual Studio environment, supporting C# development with productivity-boosting features such as on-device debugging, object browsing, IntelliSense, and integrated build and deployment.
Extend the core emulator included in the SDK to reflect your target hardware capabilities. Add simulated peripheral devices, such as displays, sensors, and servo controls. Then deploy to your customized emulator and test your code on the virtual hardware. Want to see the impact of a faster clock speed or try a different I/O configuration? Just change the parameters in the XML-based configuration file.
The .NET Micro Framework is supported by a number of ARM7- and ARM9-based processors. Minimum of 256KB RAM and 512K Flash/ROM required for development and deployment.
To develop for Microsoft .NET Micro Framework 2.0, you need:
- Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2003
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition or greater
