Running .NET on embedded devices has never been this fast-and-easy (FEZ). TinyCLR OS enables you to program your embedded device with the same .NET tools you know and love!
It’s as easy as:
- Grab a FEZ or one of the many supported hardware.
- Download and install a Microsoft Visual Studio edition, including the free community edition.
- Download the free TinyCLR OS extension.
- Plug in a USB Cable…and enjoy!
.NET and Universal Windows Platform Compatible
The TinyCLR OS API is a subset of both the .NET Base Class Library API and the Windows UWP API. Imagine the same PC developer writing a cross-platform .NET application going between a PC and a embedded device!
Microsoft Visual Studio is all you need
Say goodbye to complex, expensive and limited tools. Microsoft’s Visual Studio is all you need. Even the free community version can be used to write some amazing applications. Thanks to TinyCLR OS, applications can be targeted to very tiny hardware. Ideal for IoT, wearables and any solution where low-power and resources are a must.
Thanks to the integration between TinyCLR OS and Microsoft’s Visual Studio, a complete set of modern debugging capabilities are available to you through a simple USB cable, making JTAG a thing of the past.
