Blinking LED with Windows 10 IoT Core DragonBoard 410c


Recommended Posts



NOTE: In picture above I'm running this from my Host PC without a Keyboard/Mouse attached to the DragonBoard 410c


I had a few false starts even though the Microsoft instructions and Sample C# Program Blinky were detailed -- either I didn't have all my connections solid OR my Green LED bulb is burnt out OR I just needed to shut down Visual Studio and Restart my PC -- not sure what fixed it but it is working


I created a simple LED Blinking app and connected a LED to my DragonBoard 410C with Windows 10 IoT Core using the excellent sample and instructions from the MicroSoft Windows Dev Center at http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/win10/DB410c.htm and used Visual Studio that I have loaded on my Laptop running Windows 10 Pro.


I used parts from the Adafruit Starter Pack http://www.adafruit.com/products/2702 plus a 330 Ohm resistor that I purchased from my local Radio Shack https://www.radioshack.com/

I've since tried modifying to C# code to change the timing of the flashing from 500 to 200ms for instance and that worked well and changing the colors displayed on the HDMI monitor from Red/LightGray to RED/Green then GREEN/BLUE and a few other combination which is neat.


The only difference in the code for the 410 vs the Pi2 is in the code


private const int LED_PIN = 12;  <= for the 410c

private const int LED_PIN = 5;  <= for the Pi2
