Windows 10 IoT Core and UPS PICo

Post by Tormon » Tue Oct 06, 2015 1:46 pm

Hello All,

Quick question - will the UPS PIco work OK with Windows 10 IoT Core?

Has anyone else attempted this?

Hi,

We as PiModules not yet, however the only task do be done is to implement the picofssd.py script to the Windows, as a service, or any other program running on the background and doing the file safe shutdown. Hopefully next months we will do it. If somebody done it, please share with community.

Thanks for the information.

I haven't started it yet but I am planing on including the PIco functions into my Windows 10 IoT App.

I've already got the I2C bus up and running - I need to add the PIco I2C slave devices and build the controls for this.

I was thinking of looking at this as my first Windows IoT project and I'll take a look soon if no one else does.
Unfortunately the RPi UART isn't available under Windows IoT (reserved for kernel debug) so we can only use I2C.

In the ongoing firmware we have implemented a new function that the pulse train is not longer required, everything is done via I2C

So, firmware update will be possible only under linux image

When will the firmware with the new function be available?

OK, I'll hold off writing any code until then

Anybody made some progress on this? Trying to communicate to the Pico UPS over I2C, but I'm only getting "0xFF" back each time.
