Operating Systems

  • Linux armel (lots of single board computers)
  • Linux armhf (lots of single board computers)
  • Linux i486 (32-bit PC)
  • Linux amd64 (64-bit PC)
  • Windows 2000, XP and later

Single board computers include BeagleBone Black, Raspberry Pi, BananaPi, OrangePi, PandaBoard, CubieBoard, Hackberry, and many others. The software run on boards with popular ARM-based SoC (system-on-chip) series like Allwinner, Freescale i.MX, TI OMAP, TI Sitara, NXP LPC. The 1-Wire server runs well on an NXP-LPC3131 @ 180MHz. If in doubt simply try out your board with the software.

The software fully supports Windows 2000, but keep in mind that not all 1-Wire adapters work on Windows 2000.
