Pycom developer board philosophy

We have developed a portfolio of flexible, multi-bearer enterprise grade IoT boards to enable IoT applications. Our aim is to help developers, enterprises and education establishments shorten the journey to IoT deployment to just a few hours or days depending on complexity. The Py boards give you network resilience through the multi-bearer network access and the speed comes from enabling the super fast micro controller scripting language, MicroPython.

All Pycom products will be powered by MicroPython, thus allowing development cycles to be accelerated by a factor of 5-10. It is critical for enterprises to be able to reduce their development cycles to sub 12 months in order to continue benefiting from technology advancements. 2 -year development cycles can easily mean the product functionality is obsolete before it has hit the shelves. Python as a language (and hence MicroPython) is better suited for IoT than any other high-level scripting languages incl. Javascript, Lua and Ruby. MicroPython has the following benefits:

★Robustness

★Excellent exception handling

★Very strict with type coercion (Javascript is terrible in this respect)

★Good separation between int and float types (unlike Javascript and Lua)

★Native bitwise operations for operations on 1’s and 0’s (unlike Lua)
