Linux

The IoT-focused “LinkIt Smart 7688” SBC from MediaTek Labs and Seeed runs OpenWrt on a WiFi-enabled, MediaTek MT7688AN SoC.

MediaTek Labs and hardware partner Seeed Studio have unveiled a LinkIt Smart 7688 development platform aimed at Internet of Things (IoT) applications and with an aim to “extend the LinkIt family of development platforms to the open-source and web developer communities.” The platform offers a choice of Seeed’s LinkIt Smart 7688 ($12.90) or LinkIt Smart 7688 Duo ($15.90) development boards, both of which run OpenWrt Linux on MediaTek’s 580MHz MediaTek MT7688AN system-on-chip. Like Qualcomm’s popular Atheros AR9331, the MT7688AN has a MIPS architecture and integrates 802.11n WiFi.
