Microchip Wi-Fi® HomeKit™ SDK

Fully-Certified Software Development Kit Leverages Hardware-Based Calculations to Create Fast, Low-Power Solutions Providing an Optimized Customer Experience

A fully-certified Wi-Fi® Software Development Kit (SDK) with Apple HomeKit support  is now available from Microchip Technology Inc. This SDK enables MFi licensees to create fast, low-power designs on the industry’s first hardware cryptography enabled Wi-Fi-based development kit for HomeKit.

Microchip’s Wi-Fi HomeKit SDK combines hardware cryptography suites within the CEC1702, a full-featured ARM® Cortex®-M4-based microcontroller (MCU), with the industry-proven WINC1510, a low-power 802.11 b/g/n certified Wi-Fi module. The hardware-based security engines within this Wi-Fi HomeKit solution greatly reduce system calculation times, resulting in a fast and friendly end-user experience. With the dramatic reduction in execution time for HomeKit commands such as pairing – with pair setup in 0.95 seconds and pair verify in less than one tenth of a second – system reaction is accelerated for seamless consumer experiences during device setup and responding to Siri commands. This reduced time of system activity enabled by the Wi-Fi SDK results in lower system power consumption. Power consumption of the Wi-Fi SDK, while performing critical commands such as pairing, is so low that it’s on par with Bluetooth® low energy-based systems while retaining the enhanced functionality of a Wi-Fi solution.

The Wi-Fi SDK is available to MFI licensees only. To get more information on the platform or to request access to the Wi-Fi SDK, contact applesupport@microchip.com for verification of your MFI license.  Please include your MFI license number, Company Name, Contact Name, Address and Phone number.
