Now, boards manufacturers are consolidating and reshuffling their offers too.
Intel discontinued all its boards (Galileo, Edison, Joule, Curie), Particle bought RedBear, Punch Through Design stopped selling the Bean boards. Those join the list of former historical providers like Wiring and LeafLabs. The alternative object-based Cosa framework hasn't released any new version since January 2016.
In the meantime, Arduino is slowly transitioning from 8-bit to 32-bit, and exploring other technologies like FGPA. Teensy goes upscale with more powerful MCUs. Texas Instruments continues to enrich its wide range of LaunchPad and BoosterPack boards, especially with IoT capabilities.
What will the future hold?
