The market today is flooded with embedded solutions for the Industrial IoT. You can now choose from a wide variety of RISC-based embedded computers, single-board computers, and development boards to implement your IIoT solutions. With single-board computers such as Raspberry Pi available for as low as US$ 40 per board, is it a good strategy to cast your loT with these development boards? What are some of the key factors that you must consider when choosing an embedded computing solution for your industrial applications?
In this white paper, we discuss the pros and cons of using single-board computers or development boards for your IIoT applications versus adopting an industrial-grade embedded solution. We cover the following points:
- Development Boards vs. Industrial-Grade Solutions
- The Hardware Perspective
- The Software Perspective
