Peripheral support on LinkIt Smart 7688 development board

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.
