RPi communciating (indirectly) with NDIS-based instrument

Ask the staff at My Choice Matters a question or rumour you have heard about the NDIS. If we don't know the answer straight away we will research and find out for you.

RPi communciating (indirectly) with NDIS-based instrument

Postby MichaelMorin » Thu May 03, 2018 11:33 pm

HI,

The Plan: communicate with a NDIS USB & Ethernet output instrument to extend its memory and services available than through the existing on board software (WindowsCE).The issue: NDIS wrappers only work (well) on x86 and not supported on ARM. I did read that this can be done but is very slow??Solutions??I would gladly entertain options that could make this work. One possible solution I had in mind was to use a low-cost router to convert the NDIS into RS232 and connect this to the GPIO of the RPi. This can then be saved on a USB drive or on the sdcard itself.The instrument works based on simple rs232 echo commands which I would want to use once a second to retrieve just less than 1 Kb of data. The instrument currently has only 5 MB of storage, which using it the way I would like would fill it up in less than a day (wanting to run it for a month).

Please help.

I did not find the right solution from the internet.
