Very nice,If you sent it to me then I'm going to pass it at University or college here.They in IoT like that.

 

Since Corona Virus spread,I didn't fly there.But If there,surely just Day 1 for attendant cause my "IoT scenario" simple.

Youtube stream said there were 5 more avr ble boards! Yes please!!!
I'm currently designing a low powered sensor that will communicate via BLE, so will be good to be able to evaluate this module!!!

Hi everyone, 

 

I mentioned this on the livestream, but I'm going to extend the free samples to 15 available. Just a forewarning - this means I need to order more so there might be a slight delay. I'll reach out to the recipients after IoT Week to get your contact info. 

 

Thanks!

@ounavcon Yes! These are available on microchip direct https://www.microchipdirect.com/product/DT100111 

But I'll also send you a free one for commenting on this thread. I will reach out to you at the end of the week to get your contact details!

I registered for the IoT event and also saw that this was the place to get the free sample.  If you still have any left, I would like one, please.  I've been hoping Microchip would get more of a presence in this market.

 

Thanks!

Hey guys! 

 

We released a new dev board today - AVR-IoT WA for AWS cloud! Read more about it here: https://www.microchip.com/design-centers/internet-of-things/amazon-web-services/simple-low-power-edge-nodes 

 

It has a ATMega4808 MCU, a ATECC608A secure element that is provisioned for AWS, a WINC1500 Wi-Fi module, temp and light sensors and more. It's very simple to get started, and works with AWS shadow services .

 

I'll announce this on the livestream today, but I have ordered 15 for the AVR Freaks community. If you want one, comment below and indicate you want the AVR-IoT WA*. I'll DM you at the end of the week to get your details. 

 

Thanks! 

Rachel 

 

*your reply should say something nice 

*certain countries are ineligible to receive development boards 

*if you are experimenting with our different architectures, just let me know and I can swap it out for the PIC version

Hi Rachel and the team.

Thank you very much for your time and efforts to put this all together. The community most certainly appreciates it.

 

If available, I will take one of the AVR-IoT WA.

 

We look forward to the rest of the series.

John.

I would love the AVR-IoT WA!!! Please!!!
It'll go very well with the AVR BLE board as well for the project im working on.

 

Im wanting to collect low power sensor data, and send that via BLE to a central base station to then send it up to the cloud! so the AVR BLE will let me test out the BLE functions, and then with the AVR IoT i can send the data to AWS (which we are already using for the android and iOS apps) so couldnt have been a better combo for me!!

 

Todays stream was also useful to potentially use gestures in the device using an IMU to have some inputs for setup or pairing etc. Definitely something to consider

 

Thank you!

I'm excited for this offering. Many businesses want AWS since it fits into their existing cloud platform.

I'd like to have one of the  AVR-IoT WA, please.

Can it keep up with Italian gestures or is a bigger processor required?

And after Conte's lockdown I bet there are plenty of gestures in Italy. Maybe some will even use more than one finger on each hand.

Pity that my idea involves at least four.

 

It seems to me that one could, using signal rec'd levels, use some trick geometry to locate in space every node.  For example:

 

Item A broadcasts, "I am A."

Item B then broadcasts, "I am B, and I heard A with a signal strength of 5*".

Item A then notes that it heard B with a signal strength of only 4, and concludes that A's transmitter is slightly more powerful.

Item C then broadcasts, "I am C, and I heard A with a strength of 6 and I heard B with a strength of 3".

 

Therefore, since they're all paying attention, it is now clear that C is closer to A than B is, and that it's farther away from B than A is.  This, in two-dimensional space (and integer units), indicates only (at most) two possible locations for C.  To resolve which one's which, you need Item D, that does the same, and so also locates itself.  And around we go again, with A providing a list of what it heard at what signal level.

 

All this is relative, of course, and not really paying attention to transmitter strengths, but given a known baseline between A and B it's not too hard to calculate where C and D are.  Then you include also Item E, which is defined as mobile, and locates itself based simply on the signal strengths of the known mesh...  You'll need a few more to get it squared away in 3D, and this is overlooking signal attenuation that might be in the way, but it gives you a local in-house IOT way of measuring the locations of every mobile unit.  "Item K has just fallen down the well again.  Illuminate the 'Alert Lassie' LED"....

 

S.

 

* Signal strengths normalized to cheerful integers.

Hey Everyone, 

 

Today is IoT Design Week security day. We'll be live in about an hour with Microsoft Azure to talk about IoT security from cloud to edge. 

 

You can tune in and be one of the first ten people to fill out the survey link to claim a free CryptoAuth Trust Platform Development Kit (DM320118)

 

But because we are getting CREATIVE we are also offering the opportunity for you guys to get a free development kit* by commenting on this thread with your best IoT Security haiku. 

 

As a reminder, a Haiku is a short, three-phrase poem following a 5-7-5 syllable pattern. Here's a Wikipedia page - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ha...

 

Here's my IoT Security Haiku: 

 

Strong security 
Is critical to have for 
IoT systems 

 

Ok… I know… that wasn't very creative - hoping you guys will raise the bar with your responses! 

 

You have until 10:15am PT / 18:15 CET today (11 March 2020) to respond. 

 

Thanks everyone & Happy IoT Design Week! 
Rachel 

 

 

*you can choose if you want the CryptoAuth Trust Platform development kit, or a different secure kit (like AVR-IoT WA/ AVR-IoT WG/ AVR-BLE / one of these in PIC ) just let me know when I DM you 
*certain countries are ineligible to receive development boards 
*while supplies last
