Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Which boards provide prototyping and development for a product that will connect to Itron Riva Network?
Answer: All three development boards provide RF technology for accessing the Itron Riva Network: Edge (when stacked with Dev Edge RF board), Mini, and LE. 


Question: I need low power or battery power.
Answer: Use Itron Riva Dev LE.


Question: I want to use a Linux-based dev board. Which do I choose?
Answer: Both Dev Edge and Dev Mini are Linux-based.


Question: I want a FreeRTOS based dev board.
Answer: The LE is built upon FreeRTOS. However you can choose to use Itron’s SPLC (Sensor Programmable Logic Controller) language to program your solution.


Question: What is SPLC?
Answer: Sensor Programmable Logic Controller is a Itron developed language for rapidly programming sensors that connect to the Itron Riva Dev LE. It is a C-language based programming interface.


Question: What Itron Riva Dev boards support SPLC?
Answer: Today the Dev LE supports SPLC. In the future both Dev Edge and Dev Mini may support SPLC.
