This library provides best-guess platform detection for a range of single-board
computers and (potentially) other platforms. It was written primarily for use
in `Adafruit_Blinka <>`_, but may be
useful in other contexts.

Platform detection is divided into "chip" and "board" detection, with the latter
generally dependent on the former. Platform info is gathered from:

- Python's `sys.platform`

- Various files on Linux systems:

- `/proc/cpuinfo` (for processor info, Raspberry Pi hardware revisions, etc.)

- `/proc/device-tree/compatible` (for 96Boards info)

- Beaglebone EEPROM board IDs

- Distribution-specific files such as `/etc/armbian-release`.

The API is currently unstable and may change drastically in future releases.


On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally `from
PyPI <>`_. To install for current user:

.. code-block:: shell

pip3 install Adafruit-PlatformDetect

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

.. code-block:: shell

sudo pip3 install Adafruit-PlatformDetect

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

.. code-block:: shell

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install Adafruit-PlatformDetect


.. code-block:: python

from adafruit_platformdetect import Detector
detector = Detector()
print("Chip id: ",
print("Board id: ",

# Check for specific board models:
print("Pi 3B+? ", detector.board.RASPBERRY_PI_3B_PLUS)
print("BBB? ", detector.board.BEAGLEBONE_BLACK)
print("Orange Pi PC? ", detector.board.ORANGE_PI_PC)
print("generic Linux PC? ", detector.board.GENERIC_LINUX_PC)
