- Zolertia Zoul platforms (RE-Mote and Firefly) (CC2538 + CC1200 based, dual radio)
- TI CC2538 Development Kit, documented in the README under the platform dir
- TI srf06-cc26xx: Support for TI's CC2630 and CC2650 CPUs. Two boards are supported: i) The CC2650 SensorTag and ii) CC2630/CC2650 EM attached on a SmartRF 06 EB. README under the platform dir.
There are also platforms that are no longer in the main tree:
Border-routers and gateways
Some routers and gateways run Contiki and others are simply useful for setting up 6LowPAN networks
- BR12 - embedded Linux based 6LoWPAN router (includes the BRamble 6LoWPAN administration frontend)
- red-IO Contiki-based router. Can run Mist(Nat64/DNS64) or 6lbr(native ipv6 routing)
- calipso-gateway A HTTP/CoAP proxy and cache prototype.
Also see links to out of tree implementations in the Community section below.
Details on Contiki's organization and subsystems.
- Callback timer
- Memory allocation
- Input and output
- File systems
- The dynamic loader
- RPL modes
Projects and enhancements developed by Contiki users, not in the main Contiki tree.
