The Microchip AVR-IoT WG development board uses an ATmega4808 AVR-based MCU, with a ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication IC and a fully certified Wi-Fi network controller. The board works with Google Cloud IoT Core, which offers an artificial intelligence and machine learning based infrastructure and enables the simple collection, processing and analysis of data, as well as a being a scalable platform for IoT applications.
Developers can add cloud connectivity to a device via a free online portal. Once an IoT device is connected to Google Cloud, engineers can develop and debug applications in the cloud using tools such as Microchip’s MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) or Atmel START.
The ATmega4808 processor is an 8-bit MCU that features Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) to deliver low power consumption. It also offers advanced sensing and robust actuation features. The ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication IC comes pre-registered on Google Cloud IoT Core and is ready for use with zero touch provisioning.
