Microchip Launches New Development Board for Cloud IoT Core
February 28, 2019
Solution enables large ecosystem of PIC MCU applications to easily add secure cloud connectivity to next-generation designs.
CHANDLER, AZ. Microchip Technology Inc. released a new Internet of Things (IoT) rapid development board for Google Cloud IoT Core that combines a low-power PIC microcontroller (MCU), CryptoAuthentication secure element IC and fully certified Wi-Fi network controller.
The board unites smart, connected and secure devices that accelerate the time it takes designers to create connected applications including:
- eXtreme Low-Power (XLP) PIC MCU with integrated Core Independent Peripherals
- Secure element to protect the root of trust in hardware
- Wi-Fi connectivity to Google Cloud
“Microchip continues to introduce new rapid development tools that enable PIC MCU designers to meet changing application requirements and create differentiated products,” said Microchip’s 8- and 16-bit MCU business units vice president, Steve Drehobl. “As designers add cloud connectivity and migrate their applications to the Internet of Things (IoT), our PIC-IoT WG development board provides a simplified development process to bring designs to market quickly.”
