With a variety of wireless solutions, sensors and eXtreme Low Power microcontrollers, Microchip products enable end-to-end solutions that help you successfully connect your embedded system to the cloud and take advantage of all of the benefits of doing so.

The Internet of Things takes advantages of Cloud Connected Embedded Systems. Cloud-Connected Embedded Systems can be found in products all around you. Products such as wearable fitness monitors, home security systems, home automation systems, garage door openers, industrial controls and many more..

The picture to the right shows some examples of Cloud-Connected Embedded Systems. Microchip products enable both the end-product and the required connectivity.

A Cloud-Connected Embedded System connects either directly or indirectly to the internet and utilizes cloud-computing resources.

  • Remote command and control
  • Remote diagnostics and field reprogrammability
  • Remote data storage and processing
  • Profile and status
  • Push notifications
  • Order fulfillment
  • Consumer insight and advertising

Cloud-Connected Embedded System Configurations

There are many potential paths from your product to the cloud. Here are four of the most common configurations. Microchip solutions enable you to quickly connect your product to the cloud using these and other configurations.

 
Enabling IoT and Cloud-Connected Embedded Systems

Microchip & Amazon Web Services


Adding cloud connectivity to an embedded system is not a trivial task. To successfully do so requires bridging the gap between your embedded designers and your IT professionals. These two groups work in completely different worlds. Embedded designers are concerned about bits and bytes where IT professionals are concerned with gigabits and terabytes. Similar differences exist in other aspects of cloud-connected embedded systems. The partnership between Microchip and Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a bridge between these two worlds.

Microchip's knowledge of how to design embedded systems coupled with AWS translates into a much shorter learning curve, which leads to faster time to market.

IoT Ethernet AWS IoT Example


Microchip has designed the embedded system and firmware that connects to Amazon Web Services AWS IoT. Using the IoT Ethernet AWS IoT Kit you can have an example application up and running within minutes.
