MCU development board for Google Cloud
14 November 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Creating cloud-connected applications traditionally can require significant time and resources for embedded designers to develop necessary expertise in communications protocols, security and hardware compatibility.

Developers often overcome these challenges with large software frameworks and real-time operating systems (RTOS), which results in increased development time, effort, cost and security vulnerabilities.

Microchip Technology recently announced a new Internet of Things (IoT) rapid development board as part of an expanded partnership with Google Cloud, enabling designers to prototype connected devices within minutes. The solution combines a powerful AVR microcontroller (MCU), a CryptoAuthentication secure element IC and a fully certified Wi-Fi network controller to provide a simple and effective way to connect embedded applications. Once connected, Google Cloud IoT Core makes it easy to collect, process and analyse data to inform decisions at scale.

The AVR-IoT WG development board gives developers the ability to add Google Cloud connectivity to new and existing projects with a single click, using a free online portal at www.AVR-IoT.com. Once connected, developers can use Microchip’s rapid development tools, MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) and Atmel START, to develop and debug in the cloud.

The board combines smart, connected and secure devices to enable designers to quickly connect IoT designs to the cloud, including the following:

The ATmega4808 8-bit MCU brings the processing power and simplicity of the AVR architecture with added advanced sensing and robust actuation features. With the latest core independent peripherals (CIPs) that decrease power consumption, it provides advanced performance in real-time sensing and control applications.

The ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication device provides a trusted and protected identity for each device that can be securely authenticated. ATECC608A devices come pre-registered on Google Cloud IoT Core and are ready for use with zero touch provisioning.

The ATWINC1510 is an industrial-grade, fully certified IEEE 802.11 b/g/n IoT network controller that provides an easy connection to an MCU of choice via a flexible SPI interface. The module relieves designers from needing expertise in networking protocols.
