The Microchip Technology PIC-IoT WG Development Board, available now from RS Components, connects a powerful PIC24FJ128GA705 MCU, an ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication secure element IC and ATWINC1510 Wi-Fi network controller, which gives a simple and effective way to connect an embedded application to the Google Cloud IoT Core. The board also incorporates an on-board debugger and needs no external hardware to program and debug the MCU.
The MCU comes preloaded with firmware, out of the box, enabling the user to quickly connect and transmit data to the Google Cloud Platform utilising the on-board temperature and light sensors. Once the user is ready to build their custom design, they can simply generate code using the free software libraries in MPLAB Code Configurator. The PIC-IoT WG Board is supported by MPLAB X IDE.
