This section describes how to program peripheral sensors on the LinkIt Smart 7688 development board.
This section does not apply to LinkIt Smart 7688 Duo development board, since it has a different pin breakout. To connect the LinkIt Smart 7688 Duo development board to peripherals, read this guide.
Hardware — MediaTek MT7688AN SOC on the LinkIt Smart 7688 development board handles Wi-Fi communication, USB device control, SD card access and sensor connection.
Software — Related software stacks are provided for developers to access the sensors attached to the MT7688AN.
UPM is a repository for sensor drivers written in libmraa and it provides API bindings for Python, Node.js and C languages. It’s convenient for developers to use UPM to access peripheral sensors and modules with their preferred programming language.
LinkIt Smart 7688 development board has a built-in UPM support. The detailed support list of sensors in UPM can be found in the UPM documentation.
