Development Platform

Last Updated on : 2024-06-25 03:54:26download

Two types of NB-IoT chips can connect to the Tuya Developer Platform.

  • Tuya standard chips: Tuya makes hardware adaptations for them.
  • Third-party chips: Third parties make hardware adaptations for them.

Choose a chip solution based on your product requirements. If you opt for a Tuya standard chip, the supporting hardware design guidelines, chips, and evaluation kits are available for you to choose from.

Tuya places some restrictions on certain pin functions of Tuya standard chips. Therefore, if you develop with Tuya standard chips, you must refer to Tuya’s GPIO documentation of each chip platform for pin configuration instead of the original chip specifications.
