Hello everyone and thanks for reading my question. Is there a list of development boards RIOT supports that can be filtered by the low power network protocols the board supports?
As an example, it is tedious to look at this list and determine which board supports a network that can run the Thread or BLE protocol. For context, I’m working on a project that needs to multicast from an IoT device to a group of Raspberry Pi.
If there isn’t such a list can you recommend the board(s) that support a low power network that run a multicasting protocol.
That is a very good question and no, not that I am aware of it. Might be a useful feature though.
So, Thread is just 802.15.4 on the lower level. So any board with it should be able to run Thread. As long as you have enough memory, of course.
So, candidates would be: nRF52840, CC2538DK, cc1350-launchpad, e180-zg120b-tb
BLE would be: CC2650, nRF52840, nRF52832, frdm-k22f
For BLE I can tell you that the nRF52832 and nRF52840 are well supported. They also support IPv6 over BLE. Not sure, if the other board/chips are supported.
I probably also missed some board/chips. So that isn’t a complete list.
That would also make it quite complicated to filter for. Technically the boards have it, but when it isn’t supported, it is not very helpful to show it. In case we would have a list. Thanks for the clarification.
