LinkIt 7697 ( Linkit 7697 物聯網裝置開發板 ) is a co-design product by Seeed Studio and MediaTek. As the latest member of the LinkIt family, it uses the MediaTek MT7697 SoC and aims at providing lightweight IoT solution. It may reminds you of LinkIt Smart 7688/Duo, another development board which released in 2015. Both of them are born for IoT however they are quite different.
The chipset of LinkIt 7697 is MT7697, a highly integrated single chip which features an application processor, a low power 1×1 11n single-band Wi-Fi subsystem, a Bluetooth subsystem, and a Power Management Unit. The application processor subsystem contains ARM Cortex-M4F MCU. It also includes many peripherals, including UART, I2C, SPI, I2S, PWM, IrDA, and auxiliary ADC.
Linkit 7697 物聯網裝置開發板 For programming
For programming, you can program the board with the native LinkIt SDK using GCC, IAR embedded workbench, or KEIL uVision. In order to make it easier to use, LinkIt 7697 also provides a porting layer to the popular Arduino IDE – so that you can use your existing Arduino sketches and peripheral driver libraries.
If comparing with Arduino UNO, you will find that the LinkIt 7697 is more powerful as it can run more complicated and store larger program, IoT application friendly and cost effective, you can even plug it into a breadboard directly and start your IoT project right away.
LinkIt Smart 7688 Duo 的Arduino Breakout 是兼容 ArduinoYún （共享相同的MCU型號）和 LinkItTM Smart 7688 Duo 開發平台的 Grove 端口功能擴展板。這個Breakout板允許您使用 ArduinoYún 和 LinkIt Smart 7688 Duo 的不同功能，這將幫助您基於各種強大的Arduino草圖編譯豐富的應用程序。這個Breakout性的電路板將節省大量的工作，並通過簡化佈線來簡化原型設計。所以它有助於初學者快速入門。它支持I2C，UART等串行總線，並可訪問 LinkItTM Smart 7688 Duo 的保留原始引腳。它還帶有 USB 和以太網端口。
