IoT Platform provides various device SDKs to simplify the development process and connect devices with IoT Platform.

Prerequisites

The required operations are performed in the IoT Platform console. The device and topic information that is required for device development is obtained.

For more information about the operations, see Create a product, Create a device, Topics, and Add a TSL model.

Develop devices by using device SDKs

To connect a device with IoT Platform, you can integrate an SDK that is provided by IoT Platform in the device. After you develop the device and connect the device to IoT Platform, the device is activated and shows the online status in IoT Platform.

For information about the device SDK for C, see Link SDK for C.

If the provided SDK does not meet your requirements, you can send an email to linkkitSDK-query@list.alibaba-inc.com. Use the following template when you write the email:
