Microchip’s AVR MCU Development Board for Google Cloud

Microchip 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 .

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:

  • Powerful AVR microcontroller (MCU) with integrated peripherals (ATmega4808)
  • Secure element to protect the root of trust in hardware (ATECC608A )
  • Wi-Fi connectivity to Google Cloud  (ATWINC1510)

AVR MCU Development Board 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
