IoT design kit from Würth Elektronik is Microsoft Azure-certified
The Calypso IoT design kit is an evaluation kit with pre-installed firmware by Würth Elektronik which enables the creation and evaluation of secure end-to-end IoT solutions using Microsoft’s Azure IoT Central.
The design kit is a robust hardware platform for rapid prototyping comprising the Würth Elektronik FeatherWing sensor, its Calypso Wi-Fi FeatherWing, Adafruit’s FeatherWing OLED and Feather M0, which works with the ATSAMD21G18 ARM Cortex M0+ processor, in addition to the pre-installed firmware from Würth Elektronik.
The FeatherWing development board combines sensors, power modules and wireless connectivity in one kit. Hardware and software have been pre-tested and verified for integration into Microsoft’s Azure IoT central.
The Calypso IoT design kit makes it easy to develop the decentralised recording of sensor data, which are processed using the pre-installed UX und API interface Azure IoT Central. The FeatherWing sensor monitors MEMS absolute-pressure, three-axis acceleration, temperature, and relative-humidity sensors, all from Würth Elektronik. The Calypso IoT design kit can be used, for instance, to develop monitoring and control applications for areas such as industrial automation, the healthcare sector, smart home, smart cities, smart grids and smart farming.
“We have joined the Azure Certified Device Program to ensure that customers can swiftly implement IoT solutions using hardware and software tools that have been pre-tested and verified for integration into Azure IoT,” explained Adithya Madanahalli, IoT engineer at Würth Elektronik eiSos in the business unit for Wireless Connectivity & Sensors.
The Calypso IoT design kit is available now and can be combined with other FeatherWings in Würth Elektronik’s and Adafruit’s product portfolios.
