Atmosphere IoT Studio now supports the Maxim Max32630 Feather


Max Feather Platform Update

Blog, Platform | June 13th, 2019

You can now create new projects with The Max Feather in Atmosphere IoT Studio.  Users can program the device’s firmware and connect it to the Atmosphere IoT Cloud (or their own AWS services) and a mobile application, by using Atmosphere’s drag-and-drop IDE.

The board was created to assist engineers in developing quick proofs-of-concept, and includes an accelerometer, RGB LEDs, an SD card slot, battery connection and communicates through Bluetooth with an onboard BLE connection. The Atmosphere Platform provides some communication flexibility for the Max Feather as well, as it can be easily paired with other wireless peripherals, such as the Digi XBee cellular modem.

We have a couple of resources to check out that should make getting started a breeze. Our Introduction to Maxim Max32630 Feather video is 4 minutes long and takes you through programming the device, reading the sensors, and sending data to the mobile app and the cloud. The Getting Started with MAX32630 Feather guide on the Atmosphere Developer Hub can also walk you through it in 9 steps. Lastly, the Atmosphere Developer Forum is a helpful resource for posting questions, comments and insights.

Maxim MAX32620FTHR

The Maxim MAX32620FTHR is a rapid development platform designed to help engineers quickly implement battery-optimized solutions with the MAX32620 Arm® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with FPU. The board also includes the MAX77650 ultra-low power PMIC and MAX17055 fuel gauge to provide efficient power conversion and battery management with minimal board space. The form factor is a small 0.9in x 2.0in dual-row header footprint that is compatible with breadboards and off-the-shelf peripheral expansion boards. In addition to the dual row headers, there are also two 12-pin Pmod™-compatible socket connectors for more expansion options. Also on board are common user-interface peripherals including two RGB indicator LEDs and two pushbuttons. These provide a power-optimized flexible platform for quick proofs-of-concept and early software development to enhance time to market.
