Create Smart, Secure Nodes for Google Cloud IoT

AVR-IoT WG Development Board

Designing secure, cloud-connected systems does not have to be an exhaustive process. The AVR-IoT WG development board is a perfect starting point for engineers creating almost any IoT device, ranging from wireless sensor nodes to intelligent lighting systems. This plug-and-play solution combines a powerful AVR® microcontroller (MCU), a CryptoAuthentication™ secure element and a fully-certified Wi-Fi® module to provide a simple and effective way to connect embedded applications to Google’s Cloud IoT Core platform. These development boards are an ideal foundation for effortlessly creating cloud-connected designs.

Key Features

  • Go from out-of-the-box to cloud-connected in 30 seconds
  • On-board 8-bit MCU brings the processing power and simplicity of the AVR architecture with Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) which further decrease power consumption
  • Secure authentication with hardware-based private key storage
  • Easily connect your design without prior wireless design experience with the on-board Wi-Fi module
  • Rapidly generate code and develop your application with our robust ecosystem
