How to send interrupt from Arduino and receive to C#

userHead SUBASHIS.KARMAKAR 2023-12-19 18:37:24 203 Views0 Replies

I want to use the Arduino (Lattepanda Leonardo) internal timer to generate an interrupt for every 20 milliseconds and accordingly want to receive this interrupt as a message in C# WPF. Using TimerOne.h and Firmata.h header files, I can able to create an interrupt for every 20 milliseconds and send a message "InterruptOccurred" (using Firmata.sendString("InterruptOccurred"); ) from Arduino. But using Lattepanda.Firmata package in WPF, C# I cannot able to receive the interrupt message in WPF. The code for Arduino and C# is attached herewith. Eagerly waiting for your valuable suggestions.

 

//Arduino code
#include <Firmata.h>
#include <TimerOne.h>

const long interval = 20; // Time interval in milliseconds
const int numberOfInterrupts = 20; // Number of interrupts to execute
volatile int interruptCounter = 0;

void setup() {
  Firmata.setFirmwareVersion(FIRMATA_FIRMWARE_MAJOR_VERSION, FIRMATA_FIRMWARE_MINOR_VERSION);
  Firmata.begin(57600);
  Timer1.initialize(interval * 1000); // Timer interval is in microseconds
  Timer1.attachInterrupt(timerISR); // Attach the ISR function

}

void loop() {
  if (interruptCounter >= numberOfInterrupts) {
    Timer1.stop();
    Firmata.sendString("Timer stopped");
    while (1) {} // Enter an infinite loop (halt the program)
  }
}

void timerISR() {
  // This function will be called every 20 milliseconds
  Firmata.sendString("CustomEvent");
  interruptCounter++;
}
