Atmosphere IoT Studio now supports the Microchip PIC-IoT WG Development Board


News | August 14th, 2019

Atmosphere recently added support for the Microchip PIC-IoT WG, enabling IoT solution builders to use the Atmosphere drag-and-drop Studio IDE to incorporate this development board into their IoT projects.

The Microchip PIC-IoT WG combines a powerful PIC24FJ128GA705 MCU, an ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication™ secure element IC and the fully-certified ATWINC1510 Wi-Fi® network controller. The board also includes an on-board debugger, and requires no external hardware to program and debug the MCU.

The Getting Started: Introduction to the Microchip PIC-IoT video will walk you through creating a demo project that reads the sensors on the board and sends data to the Cloud via Wi-Fi. In this demo, we’ll also set a temperature limit, connect a fan to maintain the temperature at a set point, and control it from the Cloud.
Note: You can find more details on how to combine the PIC-IoT with a MikroElektronika Relay Click in our project gallery here.

The Getting Started with PIC-IoT WG guide on the Atmosphere Developer Hub will walk you through creating a project, programming the firmware, registering the device and displaying data to a dashboard in 7 easy steps.

Additional documentation on customizable properties for the kit is provided here:
