Windows 10 IoT Core Now Available for Commercial OEM/ODMs
Microsoft has announced that its Windows 10 IoT Core is now available for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Original Device Manufacturers (ODM).

The Windows 10 IoT Core offers a platform for IoT devices with enterprise-grade security from the device to the cloud, and native connectivity for machine-to-machine and machine-to-cloud scenarios with Azure IoT technology. Windows 10 IoT Core provides an optimized platform for building smaller and low cost industry devices offering connectivity, enterprise-grade security, servicing and manageability.

In addition to the royalty free Windows 10 IoT Core SKU that brings automatic software updates to the devices, Microsoft is also introducing a new ‘Windows 10 IoT Core Pro’ OEM SKU that provides the ability to defer updates and control distribution of updates through Windows Server Update Services. 

Other functional improvements to the Windows 10 IoT platform for developers include a new ‘direct memory access bus’ driver that provides the ability to run native code for performance improvements in GPIO. The driver also provides the ability to use “Pin Muxing,” which allows developers to choose which function to use on which pins based on the hardware support rather than the default configuration.
