As part of an expanded partnership with Google Cloud, Microchip Technology has launched a novel IoT rapid development board enabling designers to prototype connected devices within minutes. The solution combines a powerful AVR microcontroller, 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 analyze 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. Among the benefits of connecting devices to Google Cloud IoT Core’s infrastructure are the powerful data and analytics that enable designers to make better, smarter products.
