I want to ask if there is driver for .NET Micro framework.

I guess, there is a misunderstanding. The driver has no relation to the .NET Framework at all. The driver must be installed, so Windows can communicate with the camera. From this point of view, I can answer, yes, there is a driver for your embedded system. It is the same driver, you install for normal Windows.

If you point to the .NET component IC Imaging Control, then the answer is, yes, you can use IC Imaging Control .NET in .NET Micro Framework.

But: As for using the DirectShow driver, you must install all necessary components in your embedded Windows. Otherwise you will encounter many problems, like the driver can not be installed or does not work at all.

We do not know, which components are needed in detail for DirectShow, but I guess, Microsoft offers a suitable list. Same for .NET.

I have developed a new programming using .NET Micro Framework 4.1 and I need to obtain a higher time resolution than a millisecond. As I'm going to make the LED by blinking it really fast.

When I use Thread.Sleep(), it takes a number of milliseconds.

OutputPort ledOnboard = new OutputPort(Pins.ONBOARD_LED, false);
while (true)

The problem is I can only get as low as 1 millisecond
