Hardware Support

Last Updated on : 2022-11-24 09:20:00download

Two types of Wi-Fi chips can connect to the Tuya IoT Platform.

  • Tuya standard chips: Tuya makes hardware adaptations for them.
  • Third-party chips: The third-party makes 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, modules, 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 datasheet.
