The Microchip Technology PIC-IoT WG Development Board blends a powerful PIC24FJ128GA705 MCU, an ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication secure element IC and ATWINC1510 Wi-Fi network controller, providing 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.
Out of the box, the MCU arrives preloaded with firmware that facilitates the user to quickly connect and send data to the Google Cloud Platform utilising the on-board temperature and light sensors. When the user is ready to build their own custom design, they can simply generate code employing the free software libraries in MPLAB Code Configurator. The board is supported by MPLAB X IDE.
Typical applications the board is suitable for include lighting, access control, climate control, air quality, traffic forecast, blood pressure, heart rate, level, pressure, temperature, and flow.
