We received 10 AVR-IoT WG Development Boards as giveaways for AVRFreaks.
What crazy things would you build with your free AVR-IoT WG board? Comment below, by Dec 11, for a chance to win!
The AVR-IoT WG board uses an AVR MCU, more specifically the ATmega4808, a CryptoAuthentication device and a Wi-Fi module. It can be powered from USB or a battery, which is not included, since it is a pain to ship Li-Ion batteries...
This board demonstrates how easy it is to set up a secure connection to Google's Cloud IoT Core platform and pump data to the cloud. You do not need to worry about the Wi-Fi stack as it runs on the Wi-Fi module, and the unique certificates are preinstalled on the crypto chip. Sweet!
The board also contains temperature and light sensors. By default the data from the two sensors are securely sent to the cloud and will be displayed live on a web page, unique to the board that you use. So you will see your data, but nobody else can. With the fast fingers and mind of a true AVRfreak you can have the connection established and see your data in less than 30 seconds… perhaps… let's get your fastest time
Good Luck !
