Mouser: Microchip’s AVR-IoT board offers plug-and-play migration from AVR to Cloud

Mouser Electronics is now offering the AC164160 AVR-IoT WG evaluation board from Microchip Technology. Designed to demonstrate the effectiveness of Microchip’s AVR and PIC microcontrollers in Internet of Things sensor node applications, the AVR-IoT WG board incorporates smart modules to reduce the burden of complex algorithm implementation by the microcontroller.

The Microchip AVR-IoT WG evaluation board, available from Mouser Electronics, combines an 8-bit megaAVR 0-series microcontroller with a SmartConnect IoT module and a CryptoAuthentication device to reduce overall application complexity and allow engineers to quickly add Google Cloud connectivity to new and existing devices. The board also incorporates light and temperature sensors, embedded programmer and debugger, and onboard battery charging to support a wide range of IoT applications.

The board’s Microchip ATmega4808 microcontroller is based on the flexible and low-power AVR architecture, widely recognized as an effective choice for embedded control design. The 20 MHz ATmega4808 features a two-cycle hardware multiplier, 48 Kbytes of flash, 6 Kbytes of SRAM and 256 bytes of EEPROM. 

The Microchip ATECC608A is a member of the Microchip CryptoAuthentication family of high-security cryptographic devices which combine world-class hardware-based key storage with hardware cryptographic accelerators to implement various authentication and encryption protocols. The ATECC608A secure element integrates both Elliptic Curve Diffie Hellman (ECDH) and Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) security protocols to safeguard keys and protect IP.

The Microchip ATWINC1500 Wi-Fi network controller specifically optimized for low-power IoT applications. The module offers a complete solution for wireless connectivity, supporting the complete TCP/IP stack and automatically authenticating a server’s connection to the Google Cloud.
