Internet of Things (IoT) Development Platforms

Companies expecting large numbers of users can design their own IoT devices, smaller development efforts and hobbyists, and even larger efforts that want to leverage a proven design have several good platforms to choose from.

ZDNet has published a good review of Raspberry Pi alternatives, and we've included a few others that provide lower power options.

  • Raspberry Pi - the best known single-board computer, and with a range of sizes to fit different use cases
  • Libre -
  • Asus -
  • Particle -
  • Arduino -
  • AWS IoT/M5Stack - reference hardware kit (made and sold by M5Stack) is packed with on-board features to enable a multitude of IoT applications out of the box. Developers can broaden their capabilities to cover additional use cases with hundreds of plug-and-play expansion options.
