MediaTek LinkIt ONE development platform

MediaTek LinkIt™ ONE development platform enables you to design and prototype Wearable and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, using hardware and an API that are similar to those offered for Arduino boards. it’s Key features are as follows All-in-One connectivity: Based on MediaTek MT2502A SoC, offering comprehensive communications and media options, with support for GSM, GPRS, Bluetooth 2.1 and 4.0, SD Cards, and MP3/AAC Audio, as well as Wi-Fi and GNSS (hardware dependent), LinkIt ONE development board from partner Seeed Studio with similar pin-out to the Arduino UNO enabling a wide range of peripheral and circuits to be connected to the board, LinkIt ONE SDK (for Arduino) offering instant familiarity to Arduino developers and a easy to learn toolset for beginners

The LinkIt ONE development kit includes a development board, a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antenna, GSM (2G) antenna and GPS/GLONASS antenna as well as a Li-battery. Using the included quick start guide you can be up and running with your proof-of-concepts in no time.You can then add Grove sensors or any peripherals compatible with the extensive pin and interface standards supported by the board.Co-designed with Seeed Studio, this kit has everything you need to get started.

The hardware core for LinkIt ONE development platform is MediaTek MT2502A.The MediaTek MT2502A is a feature-rich and extremely powerful single-chip solution for high-end GSM/GPRS (2G) capabilities. It also features a highly integrated Bluetooth transceiver which is fully compliant with Bluetooth specification v4.0.This chipset also works with our Wi-Fi(MT5931) and GNSS(MT3332) chips, offering high performance and low power consumption for Wearable and IoT devices.

The LinkIt Smart 7688 software and tools deliver the latest board firmware and bootloader, as well as the tools for device software development in native C for OpenWrt and using Arduino. In addition, the firmware supports Python and Node.js and comes with a set of pre-installed packages you can use. You can also make use of any of the over 2000 OpenWrt packages available.Click here for the list of pre-installed packages.Also Click here for earlier versions of firmware and bootloader.

Support for Python and Node.js applications are provided by OpenWrt packages installed in the boards’ firmware. You can develop applications using your favorite Python or JavaScript editor or IDE.The OpenWrt SDK provides the tools to create native C applications for the platform. A set of tested packages are included in the platform, but you can also make use of any of the over 2000 OpenWrt packages available.
