IoT turnkey development platform speeds cloud connectivity

November 16, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Enabling wireless connectivity in minutes for IoT devices, the Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) Studio 4 platform provides a single development environment for multiple wireless technologies, including Cypress’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and combo solutions, with an easy-to-use application programming interface.

The WICED platform supports the most popular cloud services and eliminates the need for developers to implement the various protocols to connect to them, reducing development time and costs.

The platform features an integrated and interoperable wireless software development kit (SDK) including the market’s most broadly deployed and rigorously tested Wi-Fi and Bluetooth protocol stacks, and it offers simplified application programming interfaces that free developers from needing to learn about complex wireless technologies.

The WICED Studio 4 SDK enables cloud connectivity in minutes with its robust libraries that uniquely integrate popular cloud services such as Amazon Web Services, IBM Bluemix, Alibaba Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, along with services from private cloud partners. The SDK provides support for Apple’s HomeKit home automation platform to Apple licensees, and it will soon add support for China’s key Weibo social media platform.

Cypress’s WICED Studio 4 connectivity suite is microcontroller (MCU)-agnostic and provides ready support for a variety of third-party MCUs to address the needs of complex IoT applications.  Developers can access the WICED Studio 4 platform, ecosystem and community at http://www.cypress.com/wicedcommunity
