.NET Micro Framework - Offer Types
Standard .NET Micro Framework is full of features expected from any modern system. GHI Electronics extends the framework further by adding additional royalty-free libraries. This extended functionality is different between our premium hardware and open-source hardware.
Premium Hardware offers are designed for reliability and ship with our royalty-free Premium Library that extends .NET Micro Framework's core with advanced features like WiFi, USB Host, SQLite, In-Field Update, and Runtime Loadable Procedures (RLP). RLP is similar to DLLs, allowing developers to load native (c/assembly) drivers, for speed or real-time purposes.
Our 100% Open-Source Hardware (OSHW) includes all the software source code and hardware design files. These offers allow community contributions and let developers study the internals of .NET Micro Framework and .NET Gadgeteer. These offers also include our OSHW Library.
