Texas Instruments helps securely connect IoT endpoints to AWS cloud
Texas Instruments has introduced its new SimpleLink Wi-Fi microcontroller (MCU) for connecting IoT endpoints to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The IoT Software Development Kit (SDK) from AWS has been made available for the SimpleLink CC3200 MCU LaunchPad kit, allowing developers to connect to AWS IoT services and start developing IoT designs.
The SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 wireless MCU LaunchPad is an evaluation kit from Texas Instruments for the first single-chip, low-power Wi-Fi solution in the industry with an inbuilt programmable MCU. It has an accelerometer and temperature sensor, and can be fitted with BoosterPack plug-in boards for integrating more sensors for developers to test their IoT applications.
The SDK from AWS can be used by developers to store and analyse the sensor data, program trigger actions and interact with their cloud-integrated products and designs using web-based and mobile applications.
Texas Instruments' MCU and other innovations are expanding the IoT ecosystem from wired to wireless connectivity, bringing down the power requirements and enabling the use of battery-based IoT-connected products. The company is also providing certified modules and pre-integrated software stacks for cloud connectivity for easier development.
Avner Goren, General Manager of Strategic Marketing, Embedded Processing, Texas Instruments, said: "We are pleased our customers can now leverage AWS IoT to build cloud-connected products for the Internet of Things on a global scale. AWS IoT helps TI expand on its commitment to easily add embedded Wi-Fi and Internet connectivity to a wide-range of home, industrial and consumer electronics."
