Prototype a device

Before attempting to manufacture a device, it's best to first try and prototype a device with Windows 10 IoT Core. That way, you can understand what features you'll need and what configurations you'll want when it's time to manufacture.

Topic Description

1. Pick a prototype board

Take a look at common prototype boards and choose one to start prototyping with.

2. Flash a prototype image

Go to our tutorial sections to learn how to flash prototype images onto your selected device(s).

3. Install your app

Learn how to install your app using different tools.

4. Deploy your app

Learn how to deploy an app using Visual Studio.

Bring a device to market

Commercialization, or the process of bringing a device to market, involves more moving parts and people than just prototyping a device on your own time. Commercialization requires a number of steps to ensure that your devices, wherever they are in the world, can receive updates, are as secure as possible, and are compliant.
