With infrastructure support by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the DragonBoard IoT Starter Kit includes the tools a developer or maker would need to start up an IoT application – in minutes, its designers claim. Amazon selected Arrow to support its new SDK and provide IoT products with AWS support to the developer community. Arrow, which has a dedicated effort in IoT adoption, says that it, “Wanted to provide developers and makers with a low-cost, high-performance way to build IoT solutions.”
The DragonBoard IoT Starter Kit is based on the DragonBoard 410c (pictured), a low-cost, high-performance Arrow-built development board that features the 64-bit capable Snapdragon 410 quad-core ARM Cortex A53 processor. Based on Linaro’s open-source 96Boards specification, the DragonBoard offers advanced processing power, WLAN, Bluetooth, and GPS—all in a board the size of a credit card.
The DragonBoard 410c IoT Starter Kit will be available for purchase on both Amazon.com and Arrow.com in November 2015.
