The IOT2020 gateway is compatible with most Arduino sketches that can be uploaded directly from the Arduino IDE. Many other programs can be compiled and or run under Yocto Linux on the used controller X1000 SOC (X86). Third-party hardware such as PLCs and sensors from various different brands can be integrated via Ethernet or Serial (via USB adapter) using many available and open protocols including Modbus, Profinet, REST or MQTT
The IOT2020 is also compatible with Arduino shields and various programming languages, including high-level languages such as Java, C++ and Python via a range of IDEs that includes Eclipse and compilers for Yocto Linux. It is also expandable via an on-board mPCIe port. Node-Red, MQTT and SQLITE3 can also be used to connect and control local and remote peripherals, such as sensors on a device.
