# Using a dev board as final commercial solution

I'm working on a small embedded project which controls electrical usage of a factory/department. My solution is limited regarding the production of the solution: I may sell 50 or 100 per year.

My question is: can I use a development board like Beaglebone or less AVR or Freescale to ship my solution to clients (with little enhancement: box it and label it... etc)?

A few development boards are sold below cost, as encouragement to try a new processor, and in these cases, the seller may impose limits such as 1 to 5 sales per customer. So beware of those : that would cause problems when you suddenly need 100. (This is probably a bigger problem with $1000 FPGA boards containing$2000 FPGAs...)
