Getting Started: Introduction to the Microchip PIC-IoT

In this video we will be extending our PIC-IoT demo project that reads the sensors on the board and sends the data to the Cloud via Wi-Fi. We’ll set a temperature limit, connect a fan to maintain the temperature at the set point, and control it from the Cloud.

The Microchip PIC-IoT WG Development Board combines a powerful PIC24FJ128GA705 MCU, an ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication™ secure element IC and the fully-certified ATWINC1510 Wi-Fi® network controller – which provides the most simple and effective way to connect your embedded application to the Cloud. The board also includes an on-board debugger, and requires no external hardware to program and debug the MCU.

The MikroElektronika Relay Click is a dual relay Click board, which can be operated by the host MCU. It offers an elegant and easy solution for controlling a wide range of high power appliactions. Since it is able to operate on mains voltage level, it can even be used control the power for a number of small home appliances. It can also be used to activate various electromotors, switch on the lights, or power on the entire embedded system.
