Refreshed Azure Sphere and Azure IoT Development kit content in the Discover - Find Hardware section.
Participate and Learn: Replaced the 'Join Intelligent Edge Hardware Engineering TechCommunity link with a link to the parent 'Internet of Things (IoT) TechCommunity.
Build and Certify: Added links to the AI & IoT Insider Labs and EPSO Engineering Services.
The following content was added:
Public preview of NXP support for Windows IoT Core announced
A non-commercial public preview of NXP’s i.MX6 and i.MX7 BSPs (Board Support Package) was announced on December 14, 2018.
Azure IoT Certification Service (AICS)
Read about AICS, which will significantly reduce the operational processes and engineering costs for hardware manufacturers to get their devices certified for Azure Certified for IoT program and be showcased on the Azure IoT device catalog.
IoT Enterprise deployment made easier with IoT Enterprise Labs and IoT Enterprise Deployment framework.
These resource pages are a collection of information that provide a single-source for product information, training materials, technology previews, hardware developer kits, OS builds, client & cloud solution software, and solution certification programs to help partners create devices that can easily participate in end-to-end solutions as intelligent edge endpoints. While this content will be useful for all partners working in the intelligent edge area, the key focus for content moving forward will be enabling device builders to participate in the intelligent edge partner ecosystem and identify new business opportunities.
Intelligent Cloud, Intelligent Edge - get familiar with the terminology
The resource links have been structured under the following tabs:
Discover - Find out about Microsoft’s solution and product offering that will help you to plan projects and identify correct products to use for your specific needs.
Build and certify - Find tools, pre-releases, private previews etc. for engineering purposes and get started with device certification.
