The Microchip AVR-IoT WG development board is the first pure Wi-Fi board to be supported by Atmosphere. The AVR-IoT, says the company, has been immensely popular thanks to its ease of use with connecting to the cloud.
The board comes out of the box as a full stack starting point with built-in temperature and light sensors, and combines an 8-bit ATmega4808 MCU, an ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication secure element IC, and the fully certified ATWINC1510 Wi-Fi network controller.
Users of Atmosphere IoT Studio can now program the AVR-IoT device's firmware and connect it to the Atmosphere IoT Cloud (or their own AWS services) and a mobile application by using Atmosphere's drag-and-drop IDE. A working demonstration of the integrated system was shown recently at the Embedded World Conference and Trade Fair in Nuremberg, Germany, says the company.
