thingSoC nears release...

Live as if you will die tomorrow. Learn as if you will live forever.

—Mahatma Ganghi

thingSoC defines a physical, hardware socket system for inter-operable printed circuit boards, with a data centric firmware model for automatic device discovery, and a software API for interacting with the system.

thingSoC provides a vendor neutral and device agnostic socket standard, using a virtual hardware socket definition; so you are not locked in to any proprietary solutions. This means that the IoT applications you develop can be easily migrated without having to re-write your software.

As many of you know, we've been working on the thingSoC socket concept for quite a while now, and it is finally approaching it's first official release.

thingSoC Features:

  • Auto-Discovery of attached peripherals and radios
  • Configuration of attached peripherals
  • Monitoring and Instrumentation of attached peripherals
  • Standard metadata store for configuration and parameter information
  • An Open-Source Hardware Standard (OSHW)
