    Windows 10 IoT Core

Introduction

The WinIoT Starter Kit offers a preview of Windows 10 IoT Core on the Colibri T30 featuring the Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC. The highlights of this kit are fully accelerated DirectX graphics and a HW platform which is proven in many industrial applications. The software is in an early stage. Please also look at the Toradex Windows 10 IoT Core (Pro) Strategy article.
