Will all chip docs be available? Is this an open source project or a commercial board? Michael

If you go to their web site, your will see that this is a commercial board. They also have a Qseven expansion slot variant of the same processor for inclusion as a processor base into a custom design. I doubt the full chip docs will be available, more likely, access and customization will be through libraries.

Yeah, should have gone there before I commented! But you hit on my big worry is that Qualcomm is a very closed company and using the board would be quite problematic in a commercial setting without full access to the docs. Libraries often turn out to be either incomplete or designed for a very narrow use case(s). It will be interesting to see how this works.

I am looking forward to playing with this board for a couple of projects! Thanks for the pointer and the heads up. Nice to see they have both Linux and Android BSPs.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
