Definition of IoT Board 

Many applications and devices that are set to drive the wireless hardware future have not been invented yet, and this is most apparent to the semiconductor manufacturers. Wireless chip designers like Intel and Qualcomm have begun building IoT boards to help other manufacturers and software engineers experiment and innovate, to bring their ideas to market. IoT boards are hardware platforms that are most commonly used to build prototypes of manufacturer’s ideas. Chipmakers often see these boards as a way to enter the IoT world. The prototype designs can be implemented through single board computers or any systems on modules like the Snapdragon 410E processor for example.

Design of an IoT Board

The IoT boards combine microcontrollers and processors with wireless chips and other components in pre-built packages that can be programmed out of the box. Available in any configuration, these boards are extremely versatile and will fit the exact project or product requirements of any developer. Right from credit-card sized computers that come with USB power supplies and high-bandwidth Wi-Fi radios to tiny battery powered chips that are Bluetooth enabled.

Type of IoT Boards

The IoT boards can be broken down into two types, microcontroller boards and single computer boards (SBC). A microcontroller board is a system on a chip (SoC) that has data processing and storage capabilities. Containing processing cores, RAM and EPROM for the storage of custom programs that are executed on the microcontroller, these boards are PCBs with added circuitry that support the microcontroller. This makes it more convenient when using the board to prototype and program. A single board computer is a step up from microcontroller boards as it allows for the attachment of computer peripheral devices while offering more processing power and memory. Just like microcontroller boards, SBC capabilities can be expanded with the addition of expansion boards or through external modules, such as motor controllers, to mitigate device limitations.
