Create Smart, Secure Nodes for Google IoT Cloud Platforms

Designing secure, cloud-connected systems does not have to be an exhaustive process. Microchip’s AVR-IoT and PIC-IoT development boards provide a perfect starting point for engineers creating almost any IoT device, ranging from wireless sensor nodes to intelligent lighting systems. These boards offer a plug-and-play solution that combines a powerful yet simple microcontroller (AVR® or PIC® MCU), a CryptoAuthentication™ secure element and a fully-certified Wi-Fi® network controller module to provide an easy 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. With a huge installed base of AVR and PIC-based embedded applications, connecting these designs to the cloud for remote command or control just got easier.

AVR-IoT and PIC-IoT Development Board Key Features

  • Go from out-of-the-box to cloud-connected in 30 seconds
  • On-board smart MCU brings the processing power and simplicity Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) that 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
