This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Microchip Technology AVR-IoT WA Development Board

Microchip Technology’s PIC-IOT and AVR-IOT WA Development Boards provide a simple and secure connection to the AWS cloud platform for rapidly developing IoT sensor nodes. The boards feature an ATmega4808 or PIC24 MCU, with both MCUs providing the powerful and efficient performance needed for battery-operated IoT devices. 

For a quick start, the board includes a Wi-Fi module, sensors, and pre-loaded firmware to connect to the AWS IoT Core cloud service and allow users to view real-time data online. Data is kept secure using the ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication secure element, which provides hardware-based key storage, cryptographic processing, and secure boot support. 

The on-board mikroBUS connector enables easy hardware expansion using Click boards, allowing developers to quickly add sensors, actuators, and other hardware. Microchip’s PIC-IOT and AVR-IOT WA development boards are supported by Microchip’s robust ecosystem of development tools and code generators for rapid prototyping.
