As our transceiver selection improved and became microcontroller integrated, we no longer require external processing. Therefore, connected hosts (when our devices do not operate stand alone) are less useful.

Update 1

To bridge the gap presented by controller useless connected hosts, we add the requirement of monolithic kernel friendly operating environment and IP network stack integration.

This disqualifies the Arduino, Micro:bit, and NodeMCU hosts, which we replace with Khadas Vim and Up Board computers.

Update 2

Due to Khadas unavailability, we are back to the mostly original lineup:

  • Raspberry Pi
  • Beaglebone Black
  • Arduino Uno
  • UP2 Board
  • Micro:bit
