A Simple Bridge Embedded Cloud Development?


Microchip Technology has announced a "simple" cloud development platform for embedded engineers available on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

Known for its work with microcontrollers and Flash-IP solutions, the firm has provided a means of creating a working demo that connects an embedded application with the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service.

At the heart of this platform is the firm's Wi-Fi Client Module Development Kit (Part # DM182020), which offers developers "a simple way to bridge the embedded world" as well as the cloud, to create applications encompassing the Internet of Things.

In a "well they would say that wouldn't they" kind of assertion, Microchip claims that a rapidly growing number of embedded engineers need to add cloud connectivity to their designs, but have limited experience in this area.

"I view this as a step forward for corporations who produce embedded products, to develop infrastructure and connect their devices to the cloud," said Mike Ballard, senior manager of Microchip's home appliance solutions group and leader of its cloud enablement team. "With the vast amount of expertise and scalability provided by AWS, developers can easily customize their connectivity instances and the user's experience."
