I want to make the receiver device with continuous scanning mode and send back some message. I currently do this with Raspberry Pi with USB ANT dongle on Windows 10 IoT but got many problem in production and finding new oppotunity.

Azure Sphere didn't have USB port and now I'm not sure even if it can connect to ANT device since I'm not in low-level hardware development.

Thanks.

Hello,

There is not currently an Azure Sphere device that supports ANT natively. However, you could connect one of the available ANT modules to the UART interface of the Azure Sphere device you are using.

There is an example for using the UART interface on an Azure Sphere MT3620 at https://github.com/Azure/azure-sphere-samples/tree/master/Samples/UART/UART_HighLevelApp You w.ould then write code to run on the Azure Sphere device that implements the ANT and ANT+ application level code.

https://www.thisisant.com/developer/components/n5/ has more information on recent modules that may be of interest. The UART interface is described in the "ANT Message Protocol and Usage" and "Interfacing with ANT General Purpose Chipsets and Modules" documents.

Thank you very much. That help me a lot. But it seem a lot of work for me and we still have only 1 developer for everything so maybe we can try after we got more developers.
